This is the Basketweave Dress from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2005. It done in knitpicks Shine Sport Wheat in size 4 needles. This dress is for me. it is supposed to be a tunic style but it is a bit long on me. I mis-measured i think. Let me know what you think.

It's beautiful! The length looks a bit long for a tunic over pants, but just right if worn alone. What happens when you sit in it?

Yea it's a little long tunic length but it seems to short to wear alone. I wore it today and I got a lot of compliments but I may hem it still.

So cute, and it looks great on you! I really don't think it's too long to be worn as a tunic.

:happydance: very cute!!

I know what you meen it is a little long for a traditional tunic and a little short for a dress.
However i would still happilly wear it as a tuni, i think it looks lovely in the picture over jeans) and if i was having a confident day (and had your figure) i would wear it as a lovely short summer dress with a nice pair of sandles.

Another great FO! Are your needles smoking yet? You are a speed demon.

I think it looks great, and you could wear it as a dress in the warmer weather - lovely!

05-06-2008, 12:12 PM
Only one word to describe it, WOW!!

05-06-2008, 12:15 PM
I think it would look great with a pair of capri leggings and some sandals.

The length looks fine for a dress. It's really cute!

05-06-2008, 01:24 PM
Beautiful! I like the length, maybe hem it a bit but I agree it looks a bit short to wear alone. :)

05-06-2008, 07:21 PM
That is adorable!!!! I wonder if you could wear a pair of tights under it? Or maybe a pair of biking shorts thingy's?

Lovely job, as usual!

05-06-2008, 08:13 PM
That looks fantastic! :yay: I'd want something underneath like tights or leggings, but I don't think you need them. It would be perfect for a warm summer night!

Wow! What a great job!

That dress is awesome! You are really ambitious. It looks great on you.

05-06-2008, 10:09 PM
I LOVE it! I think the length is actually great as it is - you could wear it with jeans, leggings or on its own depending on the occasion. Beautiful work! :muah:

That is sooo pretty. I think it looks great and I am sure you'll get lots of compliments on it!

05-07-2008, 11:27 PM
what a beautiful dress and color..great job!

Beautiful Tunic/dress. I love anything that will cover my butt. So I think the length is just right.

:cheering: Gorgeous!

Very nice!! I like it fine over the pants. Anything goes these days. If you like it that way wear it that way, then you have the option of wearing it alone as a dress, and if it was too short you might not want to do that.

It would probably take me a year to make that. It looks great.

The basketweave is knit five purl five, isn't it?
That's great work! :star:

this pattern started out k14 p14 then k7 p7 when you started decreasing in the waist

05-08-2008, 10:56 PM
I think it's beautiful! And that color is just stunning against your skin! Great work.

I love it! You are so good. And so quick! How long does it take you to make something like this? You churn out so many beautiful things.

05-10-2008, 04:59 PM
thanks alot. this was a quick project because there were no sleeves. the back and front are done exactly the same so i keep notes so i don't have to keep measuring when i do the 2nd piece. i just keep track. so it took me about 3 weeks to do this project while doing the finishing work on my other projects.

Everything you knit is just wonderful, Scout!!! Wow! And this garment is the best yet!!! I just love the yarn color and the yarn choice, too!!!
