Pattern: Allegheny, by Thea Colman, from Brooklyn Tweed Wool People Vol. 1 , Fall 2011.
Yarn: Worsted weight Misti Alpaca Merino (discontinued), in purple.
Modifications: I left off the belt because I ran out of yarn. For the same reason, I knitted the hem facing in leftover lime yarn from Paula. I like the contrast.
Thoughts: The dress is heavier than I had expected, and quite warm. I may redo the hem because it is making the skirt flip. The design is simple and classic, and if I were the sort of knitter who does not mind doing the same pattern twice, I would knit it with the belt.
