Tea Rose Dress
While knitting this dress was hard on my hands, the challenge was worth it! I love the finished dress. The directions were clear and concise with lots of photos to guide you through the steps. Purl Soho is talented in clean classic designs.
I dislike knitting the linen stitch with all of my being, but...but I love how it looks. Thankfully the bodice knitted up in two days and then I was blissfully knitting mindless stockinette stitch. The older I get the more I love mindless knitting.
The yarn I chose was Berocco Weekend DK, a machine washable acrylic-cotton blend that was lovely to knit with. I knew that the fiber would be hard on my hands, cotton blends usually are. However, I took frequent breaks and limited my time on the project.
I'm waiting for the next time I babysit to give the dress to the mom. I'll let you know if the dress fits. I am hoping it's slightly big in the chest size and perfect for length. Fingers crossed :)
