Dress knitted recently from a pattern in Good Housekeeping New Complete Book of Needlecraft, published in 1971.
I modified the skirt to be mostly stockinette stitch instead of ribbing, so I could knit that portion on my Ultimate Sweater Machine. I did this mainly because I’m impatient, but in total it still took about 4 months to knit. The machine portion took 2 days, though. :)
