The dress is machine knitted black and white, going from bigger stripes to smaller stripes. It took a little math to figure out how my rows I need. (Yes, I can still hear my math teachers saying "You'll use math in real life!") I believe this is one of the most accurate dresses I've made.

The dress and train are machine knitted. The dress is one piece. The "fur" on the dress is a hand knitted i-cord. The veil is hand knitted and is topped with 2/3 of the Belgian Nine Provinces Tiara.

The shirt is machine knitted black and grey stripes. The pants are hand knitted. They were made in the days before I figured out how to machine knit pants.
