Yes, I know Lelah was finished more than a month back and it looked great. I had tweaked the pattern and added 2 extra repeats. While it looked good (on its own), when paired with jeans, it balloned at the hips and looked weird on me. So I frogged it yet again and reduced it to 7 repeats.
So, while I was doing the usual fittings with the seaming needle still stuck in Lelah. I decided to slide it down to the floor instead to avoid the needle after. Now, I know that Lelah is a very versatile kinda girl. But this seriously tops the cake! Observe.
I did 6 short rows in the front for the bust area. What I didn't realize was the short row works well for the butt too! I thought it was pretty hilarious! LOL So take note ladies, if you are ever knitting a bottom, you can incorporate short rows for a better fit. :D
I wore a cream bicycle shorts for the shot on top but think I should use something bright underneath the lace. Something like below. I used a piece of bright felt fabric at hand.
Talk about versatility! Lelah is a chamelon. Use it as a tube, add removable strap and I get a spaghetti baby doll and slide it down and I get a skirt. Of course, I'll need to sew Lelah a bright petti-skirt of some. I still find this hilarious.
SW thinks it looks better as a skirt. Somehow, I think I agree. Care to give opinions girls?
Next question is, what color should the underskirt be? Bright hot pink? Green? Blue? What do you think girls?
