Dress and Cardigan – Jeannie Goes Spotty

25 Oct

Here is a very cute dress by Nathalie at the ‘Les Creas de Nathalie’ site. The photo series that Nathalie creates are very detailed, fun and pretty. This outfit was posted back in July, so is a bit unseasonal for Autumn! Nevertheless it is so pretty, that as soon as I discovered it, I knew I had to knit it.

For the main part I used some bargain wool acquired from E Kemp (my favourite online yarn stockist) – Patons Fairytale 4 ply shade 04383. I used Nathalie’s recommended needle size of 3 mm, but the outfit may have fitted more comfortably with slightly larger needles (maybe I am a tighter knitter than Nathalie, or it may be that the pattern is designed for a Paola Reina doll). The white borders were knitted with an old white 4 ply I had in my stash.

I adapted the shoulder straps slightly to make it a halter neck.

As a concession to the fact it is autumn, I knitted Jeannie this lovely little crossover cardigan by Vaniline from my favourite site ‘Les Cheries de Vaniline’.

I used Sublime extra fine merino wool 4 ply in shade 087 (beige). I tried to anticipate making it too tight by using size 3.25 mm knitting needles instead of the size 3 that she recommends.
