Vogue Knitting Tunic
This is the first time that I make and wear a knitted garment from a current magazine!
This was a really easy pattern, mindless really, but I loved the pattern. This is one of those instances where I was more interested in the end result more than the process. I really, really wanted this dress and I wanted to wear this winter because since it is so trendy who knew about next season.
I used Knit Picks City Tweed Yarn in Jacquard. I lengthened the bodice to fit my longish torso and I also lengthened the hem. This was finished during the long 3 days without power we had last week, it helps that one of my hobbies only requires human power.
This is not a dress to wear when you are looking for body definition, and I'm totally okay with that. I wore the tunic today for work and it was soooo comfortable and warm!
Here is another picture to show the underarm shaping. Another progress report on the coat later!
