Anybody made this?
Has anybody made the "Bed Jacket" from Joan McGowan-Michael's book "Knitting Lingerie Style"? I wanted to ask what kinds of skills are necessary. The only garment I've made is Sally Melville's "Einstein Coat", where all of the pieces are joined by picking up stitches, so I'm a bit nervous about trying something that might have more "traditional" finishing.

Any advice, help, or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I'm on flickr, too!
I love to knit shawls...after all, a girl can't have too many shawls!

From the picture, the biggest challenge I see is that you have to pick up stitches all around for the edging. I say go for it. It's just knitting, and you will surprise yourself!

Exactly! It was once said that we never improve if we don't try things beyond our skill level.
