1960s Mini Dress
While perusing vintageknits.com, I fell in love with this dress and my hands instantly started to itch for needles and yarn: http://vintageknits.com/zen/index.ph...oducts_id=5431
It looks like a fun, quick knit with cozy and cute results.

I've purchased patterns from the site before and thinks it's great, except now the only shipping option to Canada is $20.00 and I just can't spend that kind of money for a $1.80 pattern.

Does anyone have this pattern or know of somewhere else I could get it (or something very similar)? Any suggestions will be much appreciated!!!

Thank you!

I noticed it said "Lion leaflet #667"....have you tried contacting Lion Brand yarns and seeing if they have any suggestions for you?

A long shot, I know, but worth an email. Otherwise, just start searching for vintage knit minidress patterns.

I've definitely put a few hours into fruitless googles searches, but I never thought of contacting Lion Brand directly. What a great idea miccisue! Thank you very much.

I love, love, love it in the first pic, the second, not so much...lol...Weird, isn't it, how a model (and photographer) can wear/use the same garment and depending on the model and photographer's style, the perception can be totally different?

I couldn't agree with you more. I was almost completely turned off by the modern picture, but the excitement of trying to emulate the original spurs me on. That model is incredibly striking and the pose is fantastic (do you think her legs ever end???). While I have neither her physique nor her flare, I'll muster up as much youth and attitude as I can to pull this off. I'm thinking of trying primary colours, red, blue, green, yellow... maybe some white or creme for lightness. Fingers crossed!
