FO-Pink Champagne Dress
This is Pink Champagne originally from August 2007 Magknits. Its for my twin sister. Its done in 100% silk from Colourmart.com. It is divine against the skin!! I modified the original pattern a bit because my sister wanted to be able to wear it to work by making the back closed instead of keyhole. they were done on size 4 needles.

but now that i see the finished product it may be still a bit racy for work. so she asked you all to take a vote and let us know if it is too racy for work or if we can get away with it since we are little. oh and let me know what you think. her work is business casual and she is a graphic designer.

I guess it depends on where she works. An office-NO. Church-no. It foes look great, though. Good job!

Fantastic job and wow she has a gorgeous figure. The pink looks wonderful with her olive skin. However, I just can't picture that dress being a work dress. I think a night on the town, a bar, a romantic supper, but nope, I would not wear that to the office.

Having said that, I want to tell you I think that was a pretty major piece of work and you did a really good job with it. It looks wonderful on your sister. She is so tiny!

Oh how I remember those days!!!

Looks great, very pretty colour and fantastic fit. I would agree with the others, not for work.

It's stunning. Don't think it would be suitable for work though. Just laughing to myself if I wore that to work I would probably give my patients a heart attack!!
Especially with my figure xx

Wow, that is really beautiful, and a lovely figure too. I don't think it would be appropriate for work though, unless it is really liberal and casual.
