Thanks so much everyone!  I changed the ribbon color.  I think the green suits me better.  What do you think?

These were the ribbon color choices.

I am in love with this!  It's stunning on you.  I'm not sure if I'd have the patience to make it....and I've heard I have the patience of a saint!

Oooo! I love the green. And I think it does match your complexion well.

Btw--forgot to mention this earlier. I love the ribbing along the sides. It accentuates your figure very well. I wish more dresses had that feature. It's very pretty, too.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Wow, this is beautiful on you!
I saw this pattern and was slightly deterred by the lack of shaping, but now that I've seen yours, I just might go for it.
Do you think you could explain some of the modifications you did?
thanks

I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile. I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well. I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave. I will work work to elevate you, just enough to bring you down.

Oh boy.  LOL  I can try.


Size XS:  CO 280 stitches. 

Set up row:  *10 stitches(back right strap - ribbing pattern, p2,k2,p2,k2,p2), knit 80(back panel, 10 stitches(back left strap - ribbing pattern), knit 40* repeat till end of round. 

In hindsight I should have gone with *10, 60, 10, 60* to better accommodate my straps better. 

Follow the original pattern for the feather and fan lace - a total of 5" or 11 repeats. 

Knit 7" even.

Decrease four stitches every 10th row for a total of 40 stitches decreased. 

Waist- Decrease four stitches every 5th row for a total of 20 stitches decreased

*At this point you should have 220 stitches on your needles)

Knit 10 round even or however many rounds to fit the waist length you'd like. 

Increase 4 stitches every 5th round for a total of 20 stitches.

*You should have 240 stitches on your needle*

This is how I did it.
