11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Narwhalz Cowboy Shirt on: December 24, 2007 10:49:07 AM
I can't believe you haven't gotten more of a response on this shirt- it's one of the coolest things I've seen on here! The stitching is fabulous, the design is adorable and everything is constructed beautifully- you're so talented and your friend is so lucky!

THIS ROCKS! And I am having idea bunnies every time I look at it! Grin

I have finished my yoke and have started working on the body, and my eyelets are not spiraling- I'm knitting English style, if that is any help to anyone. I actually kind of wish my eyelets were spiraling, because I like the look. Grin Sorry, I can't post a picture because I don't have a camera.

Ok, here's what I found... you will have to modify them a bit to get what you want. Hopefully someone else can recommend something better!

McCall's 5381

This one seems to be closest to what you want with the least modification, if you aren't very experienced with altering patterns.

Vogue 8393

If you're comfortable with pattern modification, I would try this one. If it were me, I would start with view C.... remove the bow, and add a gathered skirt part a few inches below the chest instead of doing the normal "shirt" part to get the look you want....

Depending on how much time I have, I might come back to this topic and search more or make a diagram or something.  Smiley Cute dress, good luck!

EDIT: This one would probably be better than the ones I posted before....

Vogue 8288

View A (use the bodice parts)... ditch the ruffles on the top and add a gathered skirt at the natural waist.

This is so pretty, I might have to look into grabbing the magazine and making it! I keep seeing all of these projects I want to start, but alas, I am a poor college student with little time and even less money.

I really love that color, too.  Smiley

I am all over this cardigan like a white girl on an NBA player! It's gorgeous! I bought some lion brand wool-ease for it today- dark rose heather. We'll see how it goes.

Indie-knitter, would you mind letting us know the cast-on method you used?
