Outfit Along - unveiled

I completed my outfit-a-long outfit!  This is a sew/knit along hosted by Andi Satterlund and lladybird, where you have to sew an item and knit a garment designed to wear together.  Last year I was only brave enough to make a skirt and a Myrna.  This year I decided to make a dress, and settled on Megan by Tilly Walnes.  I again went for the featured sweater - Vianne.  So here they are..

Please excuse the terrible photos!  It's not a great day weather wise, so the flash was needed and I got my son to take some but they were a bit blurry!  This was one he took at the weekend of the dress.
I'm really pleased with the dress, it fits really well and I think I will make another of these.
I'm not so sure about the Vianne.  I really like the pattern but I'm not convinced by the length.  It is unblocked at the moment, so I may try that and see what I think.  Both years I have knit a cropped cardi, thinking they would be ok with a dress but next year I will definitely rethink!

Otherwise, I have started Daniel's rainbow hat which shouldn't take too long to finish and a pair of thick slipper socks for me.  I am still moving slowly along with Rhombing around and Curiosa.
I have read a few pages of The Seas and enjoying it so far.
Linking with Nicole and Ginny.

  2. Oh so nice! I set my sewing machine up this spring, hoping to get a chance to do some sewing for myself-has not happened yet, but maybe this winter.

  4. Ooo I love the sweater with the dress! I think the cropped length would look good paired with dresses or skirts with a tucked in blouse, but if you want it more versatile I think longer would be better. Well done!
