I’m back working on my teddy dress again. Yes, the same one that gave me fits a couple of days ago. I couldn’t give up on it entirely. I knit the bodice sideways, then tried picking up all around the waist for the skirt, which was a disaster. Then it hit me - why not do the skirt & sleeves sideways too? I’m attaching them as I go, like applied I-cord, and starting with a provisional cast-on so I can use a 3-needle bindoff to seam it up. And borrowing from my Moira armwarmers I’m adding short rows to get the flared shape I wanted.

I'll probably take you up on that once I get it typed up. I finally finished my 2nd prototype, the new & improved version has the bodice & skirt all in one piece, then picks up for the sleeves.
