Pattern: Lacy "New Look" Dress by Claire Montgomerie in Knitting Vintage
Yarn: Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk in Natural
Needles: US 5, 4, and 3
I can get married now, yay! It isn't planned for a while (or at all, really), but now when it inches closer, I'll have one less thing to worry about! It's not quite complete as a wedding dress, but the knitting is all done. I envision a sash with flowers (I pinned one), a tulle underskirt (pinned a pattern for that too), and a champagne slip. Simple, yet cute. Just what I wanted!
I have nothing good to say about this pattern, so I won't say anything at all (Thumper taught me that!). Check out the project page for my rants and modifications. Right now the sleeves are a touch too tight, so I'll probably have to redo the bind-off. Otherwise, the fit is great!
The yarn is also pretty fabulous. It's incredibly soft and has a wonderful halo. Of course, being lace weight, the dress is also very light and airy. The silk gives it nice strength. I hope it will keep the dress from growing. It will be stored folded up, just in case.
Since it's my wedding dress, I can't share any full modeled pictures. You'll just have to wait until the wedding day photos. Whenever that will be.... :)
