Modification Monday: Swirl Dress
Original Pattern: Swirl Pullover
Knitter Extraordinaire: Corinne (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the oversized, long-sleeved pullover into a form fitting, summery sleeveless dress. She even over dyed the yarn! Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love how Corinne took the really show stopping element from the original design- that gorgeous swirl- and incorporated it into a knit she wanted to make, which was a summery dress. I love how modern and fresh it looks, and is a great example of a pretty knit for hot weather. Corinne also didn't like the yarn she had bought- she didn't love the original colour (see photo below), so she bought some dark brown dye and over-dyed the finished knit (see top photo). I love that idea- suddenly all the yarn in your stash has renewed possibilities. I'd love to knit a dress as pretty as this!
