Modification Monday: Gray Swan Dress



Original Pattern: Evenstar Shawl

Knitter Extraordinaire: Johanna (Ravelry ID)

Mods:  Used the beautiful circular shawl as a starting point for the skirt, and transformed it into a dress, using this pattern as a base for the upper body. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: This is easily one of the most beautiful knitted dresses I've ever seen. The skirt is stunning, and the bodice is gorgeous, and I love the tulle underskirt that gives the dress more shape. not only is this picture perfect, but Johanna has created a truly original, one-of-a-kind dress that really sets the bar for what a gorgeous knit dress can be. So impressive!!

I was hoping you'd feature this when I saw it the other day! It gives me a completely different way to look at circular shawls and knitted tank tops now...two things I'd never considered knitting now have ways to combine them into gorgeous dresses taking over my brain!

I don't think I have ever seen a knitted dress that is this stylish, feminine and romantic, and all that in the same time and right proportion. Kudos to the knitter who made this.
