Modification Mondays: rebbyruby's summer onesie
I've been thinking about starting this feature for a while. There are so many great patterns and really creative knitters that make a few mods and end up with a brilliantly special, unique, or vastly improved knit. So, without further ado, here is the inaugural Modification Monday post. Original Pattern:Summertime Tunic by Katie Himmelberg Knitter Extraordinaire: rebbyruby (Ravelry profile) Mods: added shorts to make the Summertime tunic a one piece playsuit/romper/onesie. What Makes This Awesome: If this isn't the perfect knit to wear on a hot summer day, I don't know what is. rebbyruby knitted this gorgeous little playsuit out of 100% soy yarn, so it's comfy and cool. this is knit from the bottom up, whic make sense for a playsuit like this- then you can try it one as you go, making sure you get the perfect fit. I'm a bit biased because I think playsuits are fantastic and deserve to make a comeback. I love playsuits so much I dragged a friend shopping last week to more than 15 stores trying on different playsuits and I was so disappointed that none of them worked for my figure- either they were too baggy and slouchy (in all the worst areas) or they were street walker fare. I'm so happy I stumbled across this- I think it might be the solution to the perfect-fitting playsuit!!
