Chic Blue Dress

This dark blue dress, made from cotton is from a pattern from the folks over at Garnstudio. It was one I worked on just before the summer last year and wore a couple of times during the summer. It was a great, easy knit, which might be down to the fact that the pattern calls for Drops Paris, which is a nice thick cotton yarn.

I did make the mistake of knotting together the different balls of yarn, which meant that when it came to finishing it there were a few bits that just didn’t look as nicely as I wanted it to.

I have to admit that I normally love knitting stockinette stitch, but I did get a little bit tired of it towards the end, so I was really looking forward to the moss stitch.

I also think it looks quite nice at the bottom, as it starts off the dress very nicely. I do think the colour works really well, especially as it can be teamed with a nice white blouse/shirt or a nice white top. There are so many different options!

And the crochet border finishes off the dress quite nicely I think. I’m looking forward to wearing this again this coming Spring/Summer, once I’m not pregnant any more and have lost some of the extra weight :-).
