butterfly dress

sorry for being absent so long
have so much work these days...
not that i'm not knitting though(hihihi)


have been working on a few new things
but they don't work like i hoped ):

and......my sewing mojo is back!!!
made a few dresses to complete my summercollection
no pics yet, but i hope to be able to show them
this week
for now i like to introduce my butterfly dress to you





this turned out sooooo cute!
a bit long after blocking, but i love it just this way

pattern. butterfly dress by Jennie Atkinson
yarn. kid seta col. 108
needles. 4.5 mm and 5mm circulars
2.5 mm hook for straps

did only one hem edging and changed the straps
did 3 single crocheted straps on both sides
think they don't stretch out this way

the white underdress i made this weekend 
makes the look perfect

pattern.  no. 20 out of this book


all the best wishes for your next week

hugs isa k.

  9. My comment mysteriously disappeared. Lovely dress, I think it is wise to knit in round to avoid seaming a delicate mohair fabric.

  10. Looooove it!! It looks so beautiful on you!!! Every time i see your FOs, i have the urge to copy one for myself! I will do your caramel after the summer. My parents are here for a visit so i am super busy and really haven't have a chance to touch the needles yet. Okay..in a word, love everything you make, the knitted ones and the sewn ones too..u r so talented!! Sunny
