Something dressy

I am super pleased with my latest finished object, a while ago I found a pattern for a dress on Ravelry which I just had to have. That pattern is called Maddie and is by Purl Alpaca Designs. It is lovely, and I will definately have to knit another one. I substituted the recommended yarn with Kauni Wool 8/2 Effektgarn, which is gorgeous, I chose the black/grey/purple colour way, as black and purple are my favourite colours. I wanted to see what the dress would look like knit in a multicoloured yarn. When I knit it again I will use a solid colour yarn.

This is how my dress turned out, I love it, it feels super pretty and warm. The sleeves in the pattern come to just above the elbow, I wanted long sleeves that reached to my wrist so I modified them, and tapered them up so that they weren’t too loose, also modified the body slightly as I realised it was turning out quite long, and I am a little short (5ft3 to be exact).
