Sleeveless Summer Dress
# 27 Kleid mit Ajourrauten und Bordüre by Stricktrends Design Team
Needles & yarn
US 7 - 4.5 mm
Lana Grossa Linarte (Cotton Blend)

I wanted to knit this dress since I saw it the first time and finally I have knitted it! But I have made it whithout sleeves because we have very hot summers here in Madrid.

Although my gauge was right, I added some rows because I wanted to make sure that the dress would be long enough for me. After all it hasn’t turned out as long as desired, but I can live with it. I don’t remember exactly how much balls of yarn I have used. Maybe 11?

I like the dress, but I will like it much better as soon as I have lost some weight that I have gained during my holidays in August… I am already working on it :-)

Update (July 6, 2012):
I did not like the old picture (didn’t like it since the very beginning) and have finally removed it. I am wearing the dress today and have seized the opportunity to take a few new pics.
