All of these make me want to have longer legs. Also, knee-high silver boots!
The shaping of this one is done just with the stitch pattern and cables. The flared skirt is so fun, and this will probably be my first 70's project, except without sleeves.
Fun cabled dresses.
love that scarf used as a belt
This one reminds me of the emergency broadcasting system testing screen on TV's. I'm not sure if that still exists since I don't have TV anymore, and also I never wear horizontal stripes, but still I might have to knit this dress.
So sleek and mod, both of these.
