1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: My new favourite dress! on: October 02, 2008 10:58:29 AM
sarahn - the front part is made up of 2 pieces crossed over each other - so it would be quite easy to pull one side down in order to breast feed. Actually, it'd be great for breast feeding because the other side would stay put.

Thanks so much everyone!

Thanks everyone! I'm wearing it today & I love it!

sarap1979: I got it at Fabricland for $8.99 a yard.

macrina - I think the dress would look great in a slinky knit! I think anything that is a 'moderate stretch' would work.

Butterick #5243

I usually wear about a 20-22 off the rack - I made this in size 22. It could *easily* stretch to fit larger sizes & still look great on them if you used the right jersey.

I followed the pattern exactly, made no alterations & I LOVE this.

I have to say - this dress has never, ever done anything for me & I have always wondered why so many people have gone crazy for this pattern....

and then I saw your dress! And now I understand! It's beautiful!

These are AWESOME!

When I was a kid, my mom would tie my hair up in rags to get curly hair. I loved how it looked, but what a pain it was to twist my hair around all those strips of fabric! But *these*....These are truly a genius idea!!

Oh, Superstitch - my heart breaks for you! You put so much time & effort into Thermal. Maybe some time apart will be good - who knows, in a month or so you might try it on & it won't be as bad as you thought?

I've finally put the buttons on mine & weaved in all the ends & I'm really, really happy with how it turned out:

I used elan Baby Cashmere - about 18 balls of the stuff. It's *so* soft. This took me 6 months to finish, but I'm glad I soldiered on.

OMG! I'm *DONE*!

Pictures to come - I just have to calm down & get over the shock of actually having finished this sweater!!

(I even have it on right now, eventhough it's still damp from blocking! SO bad!)

Honeysuckle! It's beautiful!!

I am *finally* on the sleeve cap of the second sleeve. This sweater has taken me for.ev.err to knit (I knit lots & lots of other things at the same time though, so I guess if I had just focused, I'd have finished it long ago) This sweater is going to get done this week!

I got my yarn for this in the mail yesterday! I cast on last night & so far so good - I'm making two of these for christmas gifts, but it's so beautiful that I may have to make a third for me Smiley

I'm using Elann.com's Super cable aran & size 8 needles.
