Hurra… Testknitting this lovely dress
Knitting to get 40 inch bust.
Added two extra repeats of the broken rib in front, as my bust is placed a little lower…happens over time for some of us.. :-)
I decreased 42 st. along the sleves before the albow, and icreased 62 st along the lower part, to get the right puff effekt. I knitted all st together two and two before the ribbing.
Afterthougt I am not sure i have the right age to puf-sleves.. byt now it get at god wash and blocking, and i hope it will get a better drape. Superwash yarn usually do.
I have washed it. Will come around to fasten the ends.. Not done yet.
Love the sleves now, and the dress. The drape is great. It now actually wery long. Crew around 8 inc.
The drape makes the dress wery bodyhugging. And it shows i made it one Or two sizes to small. Exspecially the picture from the back. But one Day - this Winther - I will fit in to it perfectly.
And if the bust is to wide then, I can adjust the sizing. Clever construction at the pattern.
I posted the picture from the back, to give an impression of the fit. Its not baggy, but did i have the Right size it would have been perfect. :-)
Pattern really Easy to follow. Lost of tips and tricks.
Now i just have to Stick to the diet… To come around and use the dress..
