see chloe knit
perusing the world wide webs for summer knitspiration, i came across this adorable see by chloe knit dress. kind of retro, but modern. love the detail at the waist. i would love to find a yarn in that exact shade of blue. rowan 4-ply soft had a lovely shade of pool blue called "bluebird," but it's discontinued. 4-ply cotton would be nice, but no really wonderful blues. alchemy silken straw in janboy sapphire looks pretty fab, but always hard to tell online. in any case, i can totally picture this dress with a pair of white pointy keds. so knock-offable!
check out this free download from VK. i think this square-neck top could easily be adapted to the chloe look by narrowing and lengthening the silo, adjusting the neck, and adding tabs in lieu of sleeves. okay, maybe i shouldn't have said easily, but it would certainly be a fun challenge. and aren't we all up for that?
more summer top "it knits" include this from one of my faves, nora. and this bit of loveliness from kim hargreaves's nectar.
