I love this dress but the top is barely-there and couldn’t possibly be shown at work (or anywhere else for that matter). I’ve been meaning to get it sewed closed but haven’t succeeded yet.

I knit this cardigan specifically for this dress but I still have never worn them together. In fact I have never worn this cardigan at all. It always seems off in some way. The 1/2 length sleeves seemed unattractive so I shortened them but either way it wasn’t warm enough to wear alone — but how do you wear a sweater over a sweater? I also can’t tell if it make my boobs look saggy.

At least the back looks nice…


The cardigan on the left is the first draft of the cardigan above, also made for this dress and also never worn. The front being shorter than the back, the 3/4 length sleeves, and the way the front darts make me look flat chested all turned me off and it just sits in the drawer.

The cardigan on the right is the “cupcake” cardigan which I knit four times before settling on. I think it is too dark to wear with this dress, which only goes as dark as brown, but it was warm enough so I wore it for the day with black boots. Not thrilled with the outfit but at least I got to wear the dress.
