Painting the town pink

A birthday girl has to have a new outfit, in her favorite color of course!


Pattern: Monica, from Knitty, size 4
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Pink-a-boo and Tea Rose (less than one skein each) on US6 needles


The birthday girl loved her "new dress"! The only problem with the pattern is that cotton stretches, which means the straps stretch. Five minutes after this picture was taken, the tank was around her waist! I'm going to get some ribbon to make new straps and get rid of the knitted ones, so she can actually wear it out of the house.

Very pretty! That's a bit of a design flaw with the straps, though! I'm glad you can find a way round it.
