congratulations, Alison. a work from the heart is the best kind possible -- and it is perfect in every way -- mistakes included :) (not that there are any!)

Nancy

It really is gorgeous. I would be tempted to use the very same materials. Other choices for the wool might be a silk or cotton or even a Suri. I always love a bit of liberty. I might consider doing it in navy. I applaud you and wish you the very best in the new year.

Kate

A glorious piece and Pia looks stunning in it.

You know me well, which means I would make the smallest size possible (as I'm so slow with the sticks) and as for yarn I am really loving the Koigu (KPM).

My cousin (Amy) is finally pregnant and I'm hoping it's a girl.

Shirley

What a beautiful sweater! I would use Spud and Chloe's Moonlight (Superwash wool) and something embroidered from Globalweave Textiles.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Cate

I have no idea what to make it out of, but wanted to tell you how beautiful I tink this pattern is. I will try very hard to get my Mum to knit this for my 4 daughters. If she starts now she could have one ready for each of them by winter (maybe). Right, off to ravelry!

Lies

Oh so exciting! Thank you thank you for the wonderful and elaborate work. This design is so unique. I know it will not disappoint. Will make it for my Lieveke, who'll be 5 years soon and perhaps in Drops alpaca or Madelinetosh light.

The dress is amazing! So elegant, modern and effortlessly beautiful. I am just a beginner knitter, but I will surely put this is my Ravelry queue and start thinking about what yarn to use! The yarn needs to complement this dress, so it has to be silky, warm, beautiful.

this is such a gorgeous pattern...i have a teenager who wants one!!!
as for choice of yarn, i would have to go hunting for something special...
clever you...congratulations...

It's gorgeous! Your daughter rocks it.
Thanks for the giveaway! I've got two young girls and I'd love to make this up for the eldest (and have her hand it on down)
I'd knit it in a soft, hand-dyed Viola yarn (probably Seastorm) and pair it with the Liberty blue Mabelle or Anna Maria Horner's pretty voile.

Alison! It's beautiful! And I hereby volunteer to make one for Floria. :)

it is stunning - and i want to see my toddler girl prancing in it, loving on it. yarn? i'd think something with a soft halo to it would be lovely - something with a touch of alpaca or cashmere, ideally. i can see it in a dark navy or charcoal paired with a shade of sunshine solid fabric, shot cotton. or perhaps a cherry red paired with some mirabelle liberty of london fabric. or a linen shade of wool with some lecien memoir a paris tiny print floral. so many lovely possibilities.

I would make it in a a soft shade of grey for my niece. Yarn choice would Woolen Rabbit Whisper Merino. For the fabric insert, I would be spoilt for choice by all the amazing fabric designs on Spoonflower - possibly a pink or a dark purple pattern.

First of all, WONDERFUL for you to have this wrapped up right before Christmas. It truly is a work of art -- and not just any pattern, after all -- so I think the extra weeks were just right.

I have to admit, I always thought I'd make this is the same grey color -- maybe with an insert of pale pink fabric, maybe raspberry -- but I would definitely use the velvet ribbon and velvety button just like you did. Alpaca seems like the soft choice, here, too....in fact, I'm going over to Knitpicks right now to take a look at what they have.

Merry Christmas, by the way. [You're really sweet to offer the giveaway..... :-)]

Becky

Lovely and sweet! I love the drape of the knitted fabric--beautiful.

brooke

This is such a wonderful design. (And I love the detail shots on the pattern page.) Wishing you and your family a happy holiday.

Nimbus is a fantastic organic merino yarn (by Atelier Zitron). I would combine it with a traditional yet discrete portuguese patern.
Gorgeous images!
