Purple Sweater Dress

VOGUE Knitting, Winter 2007/2008

It was a quick knit, taking under consideration the size of the dress. I managed to complete it in one weekend. The dress had to be hand knitted because the yarn was too bulky for my sweater machine. The pattern was easy to follow, the only change I made was to make the length and the sleeves shorter. It looks good over some jeans, but I loved the original look over a dress, so I decided to make a simple jersey  lining. It is a tank top dress with a wide bottom.

And a recent little painting. I was trying to paint on wood, experimenting with it and oils. I struggled a lot, but I have learned a lot as well. Maybe the next one will be better.

Azalea Dress

I bought couple yards of silk chiffon on EBay a while ago because I loved the playful print. I didn’t have any plan for it at the time, but when BurdaStyle came up with Azalea Dress I knew it would be a perfect combination.  And here it is; Azalea Dress.

I had a moment of brilliance while shopping at a 99c store last week: magnetic paper clip holder is great for pins. I have been using it since then and love it! It is very practical.

Lastly, I have a plan for my next knitting project; another knock off Anthropologie; Cropped Cardi.
