Description

I started knitting shoulders & neckline of this dress using the “feather dress” pattern from “Modern Top-down Knitting” by Kristina McGowan. And then, I took it from there… trying the dress on every half an hour to check the progress, fixing the fit and design as I went. I probably knitted enough to make two dresses, considering how many times I re-did every part of the dress. CREATING A PATTERN IS NOT EASY. At least I learned that…
