Bombshell - Marilyn Monroe inspired



Contest Entry: 2012 04 - Project of the Month



Knitter/Crocheter: charmaine.peggese
Gauge: Sport / 5 Ply
Project Type: Dresses
Project For: Women
Yarn Used: elann.com Bamboo Classic
Pattern Used: Designed myself

I used two types of needles for this dress. For the skirt part, I used a size 6 and for the waist, going on upwards I used a size 4. This dress was knitted into one whole piece, casting on a substantial amount of stitches so the skirt could have a pleated effect. I personally designed this dress for spring and summer days - special occasions and etc. I hope you all like =) If this dress is fairly liked then I will post the pattern on ravelry.

It's a beautiful design.
As a seamstress I would note that it looks like there is too much fabric at the underarm area.
Perhaps by making the neck halter strap narrower it would also reduce the amount of stitches and fabric that is at the armhole.
It just seems bunched in that area and ultimately might be uncomfortable.
