Has anyone made this dress yet?


Its on the free patterns tab under dresses. I think it is sooo pretty and I was wondering if I could get some advice, once I take up the challenge that is :)

Wow this dress is SOOO nice!!! I want to do it too... but there's so many projects on my list... ARRGGGHHH!!!!

:D How have I not seen that?! Love it

I thought I had looked at every pattern on knitty? How did I miss it?

That doesn't look like it would be too hard. . . and you KNOW you can come here for help!

I know how you guys probably missed it. That pattern is from the summer 2004 issue, and the patterns in it aren't (as far as I've seen) listed in the regular archives list. you have to click on the "Sex & the Knitty" issue over to the left side if the archives section.

it's very pretty, but i don't think i EVER want to make a pattern that starts with: cast on 400 stitches, make sure they are not twisted and join

if i tried that, i would be joining Hurley and Libby at the insane asylum

didn't humblestumble (sp) do it or at least start it?
and i thought it was a nighty?

Inspired by the sexy, ultra-feminine undergarments of the 1920s, this little nightie is just the thing to slip on after a fun evening of dancing, or before a fun evening at home!

It is supposed to be a nighty. I suppose it could be a dress, though if you made the top less see-through.

*wonders if she was the only one who had to google to find out who Hurley and Libby were*

04-07-2006, 08:23 PM
*assures Brenda that she is not the only one who had to look that up*

*going off to google now...*

I've always been partial to the ARAN WEIGHT LACE SHELL WITH RAGLAN CAP SLEEVES (http://secure.elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=106024) on elann, but the instructions are a bit vague for me to understand.

I know it is sooo pretty. But I didn't find it on the knitty website, I found it on this website in the patterns tab. Didn't I make that clear? :?? I'm sorry if I didn't. :blush:

I guess it is for "inside the home", but, yeah, I could wear a tank underneath or something. I guess I'll figure it out.

Thanks Ingrid for the help! I'll be sure to ask alot of questions!!!

Now, where to find the yarn... :thinking:

04-07-2006, 10:01 PM
no you made that clear but look at the link...it is a knitty link.

doesn't matter either way....just a puzzle! :?? :rofling:

Probably worse that I knew exactly what Hurley and Libby meant...didn't even have to think twice :shock:

Speaking of a space cadet, did I miss something here???!!! How'd we get onto the show Lost all of a sudden :??

Well, I guess I'll join in, I've never seen a show. Does that put me in the strange category? Of course, I was already there to begin with. :roflhard: :roflhard:
