Original Pattern: Laneway
Mods: worked multicoloured stripes, changing colours after every 3 stripes worked; lengthened the body, reduced sleeves, and used an elastic bind off for the hem. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I’m a huge fan of Veera’ patterns to begin with, but I love Ririko’s personalized take on the pattern. the multicoloured stripes look great grouped into bands of three, which has a more elegant and refined result than if she had changed colours for every single stripe. Reducing the size of the sleeves works great for her slight frame, and lengthening the skirt worked perfectly- even though the dress has pockets, which can be tricky to do, so lengthened with the pockets in mind. The result is a fabulous dress that looks just so right.
