Notes

My dearest grandmother, the first and only my knitting guru, many many years ago, in 1983, brought that Vogue knitting magazine from US. I was 10 years old.

Now I use it for an inspiration, because all designs are modern again. 30 years of a fashion circle.

I was inspired by striped tank top and drop shoulders sweater knitted with different textures (numbers 14 and 15 in magazine, designer Adri, see the last picture).
Yarn was too heavy for the top, so I decided to make a dress. Got different gauge, so did not use the pattern description at all. Used different stitch patterns, different ribbing.

A strapped bag used as an accessory is here.
