FO: Flouncy Dress

I finished this little dress when I was in Germany with my Mum, I know I’ve given you some teasers. Here, finally, is the finished piece.

This little dress is for friends of ours (but it’s a surprise yet, so I can’t reveal who they are). It’s such a neat pattern, and I especially like the flouncy skirt, it’s a pattern from Garnstudio. The pattern actually calls for a different yarn, but I decide to go with Drops Safran, as I had some left over in my stash and I wanted the dress quite airy and for hot weather.

The pattern is really, really nice to knit, and it has such great details, the skirt and the top just come together so nicely. I love the double moss stitch of the top, it just makes it look so adorable!

I didn’t exactly pick the colours, but rather used three skeins of yarn that I had left over. I actually think the colours worked out really well! I love the little pink skirt and then the turquoise body part just works really well and the yellow ties it off very nicely!
