Despite my dress issues, I’m so very happy with how this outfit turned out. It’s very comfortable and cute, and I’m looking forward to wearing it all of the time.
I knit and sewed the official patterns as written. At first I thought I might have to modify Vianne because I couldn’t get row gauge with my yarn, Hazel Knits Lively DK in Poppy, but changing to a different brand of needles that run a little smaller did the trick. No modifications needed! I chose the buttons because they reminded me of the motifs on my dress. Unfortunately they’re a little too small and I might need to swap them out eventually, but don’t they tie everything together well?
