I'm going to my boy's sister's wedding next November and I plan to wear this dress:  http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=8725&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=298&iMainCat=17

but, well, it's going to be November in Michigan.  I'll probably be wearing a coat while outside, and I'll probably be warm at the reception and all, but I want something  that I can bring with me in case I get chilly.  and to add a little color to my outfit.

I'm thinking a shrug like "I do" wouldn't work well with the tied straps, so I'm thinking more of a shawl or wrap.  and I'd think more of a rectangular wrap because, well, it would be easier.  I could probably get something lacy done by that time, but nothing too complicated because I'm not very good at lace.

any suggestions?

I would acutally make something shawl-ish out of a butt-load of tulle....So it's very, very full. You could add some sequins or ribbion as an accent....I think it would be hot with that dress....

A heavy knitted piece might be too bulky, so if you're gonna knit I think it should totally be lace.

I'm making this right now for a friend's wedding and its very easy lace and pretty.  There are a couple errors in the pattern though.

ooooh that is a beautiful dress Smiley  i second the sheila cape.  i've been eyeing that one for a while myself Wink  the good thing about a capalet is that you can pin it around your neck and not have to worry about it sliding off.....you're hands and arms are free to give out hugs or dance with someone...you don't have to worry about your shawl sliding down to the floor without you noticing Smiley 

what about something like this?  http://www.rainyday.squarespace.com/lace-capelet

What about Cozy from Knitty http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTcozy.html or
Trellis from Magknits http://www.magknits.com/feb06/patterns/trellis.htm

It looks much more complicated than it really is.  And it's gorgeous.

I like the Sheila cap and the lace capelet from rainyday for keeping your arms free like cherry blossom said, but the print o the wave stole lsm posted is VERY elegant and would be beautiful with that dress!  I think I would go with that.  It looks long enough that sliding off wouldn't be too much of an issue.  Post a pic with the dress when you're done!
