Color Stripe Tunic Reviewed by Jilly Pendleton on 2012-07-27 ****
With some alterations got the pattern finished - looks great. BUT had to reknit the sleeves - too tight. And I changed the neck, started on 4 needles, but decided after the ribbed part to split the neck with an opening on the lefthand side.
It is a lovely garment, the colours are so much fun to knit that I want to knit another one. But with postage it worked out very expensive as I live in New Zealand, but maybe the only one in NZ?

I love this yarn and the dress is precious. It was fun to knit. The pattern however has the yardage incorrect. There should be 3 skeins A, 2 skeins B, 2 skeins C and 1-2 skeins D for size XS. It was disappointing to run out of yarn when ready to do the sleeves! When I contacted Lion Brand they told me my guage must be off...but it was not. If anything, since I was knitting this for my young granddaughter, the guage was reduced. I used smaller needles intentionally to make it a bit smaller.

This was a joy to knit and my granddaughter loved it! I loved seeing the way the colors blended. However, the yardage was off and I had to improvise with the different colors. It turned out fine and you can't tell in the finished product but I measured and knit to gauge so was very surprised. Alls well that ends well.

I made this is size small and it worked out well. I ran out of yarn though (needed another Wildflowers and Ruby to complete it).
I had trouble with the sleeves; they worked up very small. I re-did them with larger needles. Still too small. I re-did them as size medium and added a few rows. They still worked up pretty short, but I don't mind three quarter sleeves so just went with it. I think you need to have arms as thin as this girl in the pic in order for the sizing to fit you fine.
Overall I'm quite happy with it.

I made this dress in xsmall and ran out of yarn for colors c and d. However, Lion Brand corrected it by sending me more yarn. It did turn out very nice. But I would make it a little longer next time if I make it again. I love this yarn, it is amazing.I will use it again for another project.

Love this dress I made for my daughter! She actually WEARS it too.
I adjusted the pattern to make it about 6 inches longer at the waist. It was way too short otherwise. I suggest matching a known dress length before completing the pattern.
