And as for these dresses, I just wish I had ocassion to wear them. Thi sfirst one, well I change the skirt to be a fish tail or something more long and floaty. The bodice is gorgeously simple. well, if I find a ball to go to, maybe!

Yarn: A merino / silk blend from knitshop.co.uk
Needles: Various, 3.75mm Boyes straights and 4mm pony circs
Time: Oh, a couple of evenings
I just love this pattern. So quick, I love the finishing feeling as much as I love the cast on feeling! The silk blend is lovely, very soft and good for stitch definition. The merino makes it a teeny bit fuzzy, but that's OK. Whilst knitting these, I was sceptical, they really don't look much like knickers until you block them. Everything including the great crochet picot edge comes together. I am tempted to do them again for me, and I'd have to do the large and I'm only a UK 10. These are the small, and they're very small. That's OK, cos my friend is a UK size teeny weeny (if very tall). To make these wearable (let's face it they're just gimmicky!) I think I'd modify the thong portion too, the pattern doesn't show that it's actually just a crochet chain! I am tempted to make these into lacy big knickers!
