I've had this knit in stash for a few months. It was one of those that I saw in the store and had to stop and "visit" and pet everytime thereafter that I was in. Finally I just couldn't stand not to have it any longer and bought plenty for a dress and then some. I had not trouble getting this dress out of it and have enough left over for a shirt.
It's such a thin fabric that lining was not really an option so much as a requirement. I found this great dark teal knit at Joann's to line it with, which not only matches the teal in the print perfectly, but also matches the teal shoes I plan to wear with this dress.
The only downside to the teal is that it's a pretty substantial knit and so the dress weighs an awful lot for a knit dress. The knit lining also helps keep the brown from sticking to itself, which is does something awful. Now to decide on my next project. Back to fighting with the vintage blouse pattern that refuses to cooperate, or onto something new and fun like another knit top? I'll have to consult with my test group and see what they have to say about it.
