In which a slightly gusty, rainy day turns my thoughts to yarn and needles.
I have looked at this knitted dress pattern from Etsy seller babydee over and over again. Isn’t it just stunning? Imagine a full length black lacy gown over a red or cream slip…
… and then imagine how long it would take to knit one! I know vintage knitting patterns often call for a much smaller gauge than modern knits, so if I started this tomorrow I might be finished by next winter! Even with the lacy pattern it would be a marathon effort. In addition, I know knit dresses are slightly impractical as knitting likes to stretch out with wear. But, how pretty…!
Are any of you knitters? What would be my chances of this turning out nicely if I decided to give it a shot? Or should I devote myself whole-heartedly to my sewing machine?
