DIY | Inflation, Deflation, Holes.

Psynopsis Self-Knitted Brown Dress
Enough of this flagrant self-promotion. After losing at tennis by the dozens (sets not games… yayaya, it feels hopeless, but what am I expecting after a winter spent hunched behind screens) and fighting it out at the knitting machine my inflated ego has shrivelled to the size of a pea… So much healthier anyway. Still intrigued by producing dresses (ideally with trousers and little sweaters or jackets to match. There's an early 60s twinset girl lurking inside me, waiting to come out) and this is the latest version – lots of holes, and I think it looks best worn under a billowing skirt. Back to blown-up, that's me, yesss. Happy Weekend! Muah, muah!

the dress is gorgeous, the hole detailing is just wonderful. Wish I could knit some clothes but alas I just can't get to grips with knitting a scarf let along an outfit

Oh I like this design! I like the little peplum skirt. I sense a Sabine Pynopsis knitwear label in the making...

Totally impressed for your skill in making this piece, Sabine! PS: the photos look like a location shot in the middle of Brazil!

Haute World said...

Love it! I like the patterns of the 'holes' and the shape of the dress. All about billowing skirts too by the way, although I wore a long one last week which actually got caught in a moving escalator (talk about living nightmare). Thankfully both skirt and I escaped unharmed.

danniekate said...

Susan said...

wow that's utterly fabulous!

Nnenna said...

I LOVE IT! This dress is so gorgeous Sabine! =) I was trying to make a dress similar to this last summer, but it utterly failed and I wish there was a pattern for this dress!

Nnenna said...

Oh, and thank you for your comment about my bag! I meant to ask, what doe you mean by 'fake cable'?

vint junky said...

Oh wow Sabine, we'll disregard how incredibly beautiful these photos are (I tried some evening low light shots but I've turned them into something altogether more creepy...not ethereal and pretty, not like these little tennis loving wood nymph images....) and just dwell on the dress. It's beautiful. Re-inflate the ego!

Heather said...

ps i does get cold enough for a fur coat here, below freezing at night time, that's appropriate right?
