I love the top I made from this pattern so much that I just had to make a dress out of it, too! Read more here: http://www.fehrtrade.com/gallery/136/that-new-chestnut

    great pattern for the fabric. it’s quite hard to find really good prints in london fabric shops, but really you shouldn’t have given that link to crybaby’s boutique – i feel i must buy something now…

    thanks everybody!! And EmilyKate and dianacirne, you can still buy this issue from Naaipatronen, which is where I buy all of my issues! Select KnipMode from the right dropdown box on that page and it’ll show you all the back issues (I highly recommend January 08 for lingerie and June 08 for swimsuits, too if you’re bulk-buying!). The site’s in Dutch, but Google Translate really helps and the owner speaks English if you get stuck at all and have to email!

    Yeah, redheads in green, gorgeous! It’s lovely. I’ve seen the top you made from this pattern, and I WISH I would have known about Knipmode then and bought it too…

    This dress is gorgeous! Love the fabric and the chestnut detail! Lovely! Knipmode is a really nice magazine, is just a pity to be so difficult to find, I have two or tree numbers that I buy in ebay, and I love almost the models!
