I wanted to show everyone the very first item I had knitted since college....let's not ask how long ago that was...lol.
I fell in love with the dress when I noticed it on the cover of Vogue Knitting Magazine. I figured, what a way to get back into knitting! It was challenging and fun at the same time.

The dress was made for my neice, who is modeling the dress.

:inlove: That dress is GORGEOUS! :inlove:

You basically have to have a perfect figure to wear a knitted dress or skirt, IMO. She's definitely got it! :)

Wow, that must've taken forever! :thumbsup: great job!

Thank you so much!

What I did to keep knitting smoothly, was I rewrote the pattern, so that I would not have to stop. This was easier then going from chart to chart, which saved a lot of time! :woot:
