Modification Monday: Alice in Wonderland Dress

Original Pattern: Alice in Wonderland
Knitter Extraordinaire: Cathy (Ravelry ID)

Mods: Raised the neckline, shortened the cabling section, and turned the top into a dress. Details can be found on her project page, here.

What Makes This Awesome: You might remember seeing Cathy before, as she is no stranger to the modified pattern (check out her previous Mod Monday post here). I love her take on the original top pattern. The dress turned out beautifully, and is a great reminder that so many tops can actually make great dresses, especially ones like this that already have waist shaping involved.  Cathy’s dress is a stunning example of just how good a sweater dress can really be. I haven’t knit one yet, but knititng a sweater dress (I do have store-bought ones) is definitely on my must-knit list!

    I live in couple of knit dresses. They are so comfortable. In the summer I favour the ones I’ve made out of linen.

    I will stick to my sewn dresses, because of all the lumps and bumps would be on full display in this kind of dress! I love the idea of turning a sweater pattern in a dress, and I’m envious of those who can pull off the look!

    Gorgeous! Off to fav it immediately. I too would like to knit a dress (and then, you know, wear it), but the amount of knitting involved feels a bit intimidating to me. I also have a couple store-bought knit dresses, they are indeed comfy.

    Amazing project… and sheer dedication, since that looks like fingering-weight! Beautiful!
