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!


  1. I don't knit - wish I did as I could feel less guilty about the nights I sit in front of the TV - but this tunic is so fabulous I'll copy it in a heavy knit fabric.

  2. That's some fantastic knitting. You are very brave to knit a dress. Nice job!

  3. Congratulations!!! It looks fantastic!!!
