Let's go retro...

I would like a 70's or 80's dress that I can wear with a big chunky patent belt, tights and boots.
This idea -

This yarn -

This pattern?

I think I will adapt it so that I knit in the round to the armholes, then divide for front and back, making a wide strapped bodice. Then crochet edging in a contrasting purple, perhaps adding sleeves in the purple as well. I do love to experiment. Watch this space!


  1. nice! i'd love a jumper dress but i'm a bit too "round" !!!!

  2. Love that sparkly yarn and good pattern choice. I want to knit a sweater dress too!
