I am so pleased with how this dress turned out, to the point I may make one for myself! I finished the knitting last night, woke very early, and lay thinking that I should get up and finish it off so that Rachel could have it tonight. I was downstairs at 5am and put the last stitch in at 7am. Here is the result -
In day light
Then in night light
With 4 months to go there is plenty of growing room. She has asked me to knit a belt from the leftover yarn.
Pattern - James C Brett - JB100
Yarn - James C Brett - Rustic Aran Tweed in colourway DAT16. This size took 840 grams, the pattern suggested 3 x 400 gram balls so we have 360 grams left over. The yarn was on offer at £7.99 a ball so it has turned out to be a pretty cheap dress.
All in all a great result
