This pattern is the Ribbed Minidress by Mari Lynn Patrick from the Vogue Spring/Summer 2007 issue. I used 6 skeins of Koigu KPM for the small size. I modified to make it shorter, but I guess I went too far. This is more of a tunic/shirt than a dress now. I loved working with the Koigu KPM and am pretty happy with how it turned out, although I might pick up the hem stitches to make it a bit longer.

Thanks for looking!

Little yarn, beware of the cold blooded knitter

Youre looking great! I was thinking of buying the issue for this pattern, was it difficult ? How long did it take you ?

What if you put a couple inches on the bottom in a pretty lace stitch?

Can I just say that your dress is adorable and that you have great legs?  I'm a tad envious.  Haha.  I was in love with that pattern before and now that I've seen it on a real person I think I need to whip my legs into shape solely so I can knit that dress and wear it. Great job!   Smiley

I'll second that.  You did a fabulous job and I would love to add this pattern to my knitting queue.  I'm too lazy of a knitter to do anything too complicated or time consuming - I would never finish.

You look fabulous in this dress - its not any shorter than what I see girls running around in every day!  I do think it would look great with some lacey stitch around the bottom (as mentioned above.)
