Sweater Dress and Chiffon Blouse

Added Dec 7, 2012

Ithaca, New York...






Baby Alpaca 100% sweater dress using the top-down method. I also made the bow-tie chiffon blouse whose sole purpose is to be worn with the sweater dress.

The dress is super warm…I can walk around outside without a coat in December in NY!

    Both are super cute! This is inspiring me to learn to knit (ahh looks too hard. I’ll just stick to sewing sweaters).

      Thank you!! I’m actually new to knitting sweaters—-I don’t think it requires difficult techniques, it’s just the result of completing simple steps one by one (just like sewing!!) :)
