a special levitation

This is the most recent levitation shot, there are quite a few before this one, but I can’t wait to show you… 

… a new dress I made! :D



It’s from a pattern by Doris Chan and made with Mary Maxim Prism in a colour called Still Waters. It’s for going to a wedding in the fall :D The front closure ended up backwards, I don’t know how that happened… but oh well. I really love the yarn! And I love that the colour is called Still Waters. Was trying to do an interpretive levitation of still waters. It’s unfortunate that I don’t have a better background setup for the photo. Maybe when I go to the wedding I can try again, something to do between ceremony and reception :D

I got mother of pearl buttons from my favourite button shop on Queen Street.

More levitation photos to come! Have a great Friday! :D

  • Oh, gosh, it is beautiful! It looks like something from Missoni to me with the subtle stripes. Such a pretty yarn.

    I have a few books from Doris Chan, but still need to try a pattern. This one is lovely. :)

    i love doris chan patterns, but i always screw up at least one part of it and can’t find what i’ve done wrong… like the backward front closure!
