Modification Monday: February Lady Dress
Original Pattern: February Lady Sweater
Knitter Extraordinaire: Milja (Rav Id)
Mods: Created a top-down short sleeved dress using the lace pattern from the February Lady Sweater for the main detail of the dress. She has fabulously detailed notes on how she created it here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love how Milja recommends on her pattern notes to use an existing pattern or construction that you know works for your body, and then add the lace. This is such great advice- if you know a pattern that suits your body perfectly, it can be the perfect jumping-off point for a world of gorgeous knits. And this dress is incredible!! I love the shape, the lines, the colour - it's the perfect garment for the fall weather when you need some transitional pieces. And it looks amazing belted, don't you think? Just beautiful.
