Updating a 9 Year Old Dress
Despite being my favorite color, a good fit and very comfortable, I've only worn it a handful of times. It's pretty open on top with the V front and back. I've looked for a cropped sweater or shrug but never found anything that matched. A couple of months ago I went to a new-to-me knitting shop with the dress and pattern in hand. I was determined to find some yarn and make a sweater for this pretty dress.
This is the finished sweater. I wish you could feel it. The yarn called Cozette by Knit One Crochet Too is silk and cotton and light as a feather. At only $9.50 per spool it was very economical.
To think I hesitated taking up knitting again because I thought I lived in too warm a climate to wear anything I might make! This sweater proves that isn't true.
So I still need somewhere reasonably dressy to wear this. I guess I'd better drop some hints and maybe an opportunity will appear! It won't be Hawaii for sure but maybe an evening out?
I'm working on a new papercrafting project I'll have up soon. Thanks for visiting today!
