I'm beyond frustrated trying to photograph this little dress and get a good, color-accurate picture. Please ignore the ugly-ass button I used temporarily too. I have ordered some totally cute ones that I hope will match this dress perfectly, but I don't expect to receive them anytime soon. Unbeknownst to me when I purchased them, they are coming from the other side of the world. I placed the order two days ago and haven't even gotten an acknowledgement. I may not receive them at all. Boo! Hiss!
Anywho, there will be two buttons, one on each strap, but only one is functional. I loved this pattern and didn't have any problems with it. I did change the yoke and edging. I didn't like the weird shell thingies on the yoke in the pattern, and the ruffly edging didn't appeal to me either. After all that, I still don't really love it.
Now the details:
Pattern: Halter Ruffle Dress by Mon Petit Violon
Yarn: Knit Picks Brava Sport in Almond & Persimmon
Hook Size: G
Satisfaction Level: Maybe I should have followed the pattern exactly because I'm not happy with the way it turned out. I'm not exactly sure why. The yoke is too narrow and I don't like the shell edging I put on it either. I do love the colors...just wish you could see them as they look in person.
