Daisy Protoype Dress



This was my second prototype for Daisy: a dress. The fit was much closer than the cardigan and turned out very well. This seems like a great style for her.

This is also the latest attempt to perfect puffed sleeves. It seems really close to the mark: a nice pouffy, rounded shape that stands up nicely. I will be using this technique again!





And, oh yes, those buttons work!

I *love* the poufed sleeves! I don't suppose you would care to give a hint on how to make them? I've done lots of raglan sleeved sweaters, but that pouf is adorable.

Hullo, Dawn.
I am so happy that you love them. I had a lot of fun figuring them out... but I have further plans to refine them. I really need to tackle Japanese-style short rows (http://www.petittricotage.com/2011/03/japanese-short-rows.html)! I think it would make them even nicer.

What's the secret? Well, they are only my second attempt but if you can turn a heel on a sock, it is similar to that... but reversed. Does that make sense? Maybe you can improve upon it.
