Notes

Started an easy summer dress. Wanted to use some yarn from stash, and try out a dress I’ve looked at for some time.

It’s quite allright, I don’t have too many projects lying around, I’m sure.

9th June: Divided front and back, and are quite excited about how it turns out and if I have enough yarn.

13th June: last few stitches and weaved in ends.

Changes/ modifications: Since I didn’t have enough yarn I had to colorblock. Turned out quite nice. I think princess is nicer in that darker purple against her face than the pale one.
And for a narrower shoulder I decreased five stitches on each side of arm after dividing front and back.
The darker purple is knitted in seed stitch, just to make some structure and interest in the front.
