Photoshoot at Bøler Church 2023: Chiasa

The next set of photos I will share from the photoshoot in Bøler Church last December is of the dress Chiasa made for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk in their Tinde pelt wool yarn.
I decided to use the church organ in the chapel as the background for Chiasa. Make-up & Hair stylist Hina Suleman suggested to braid jazz singer Anette Løvtangen’s hair. Here are the brilliant pictures that photographer Eivind Røhne took of her.

As you can see, I chose to style it with a black blouse under, black tights and olive green boots by the Norwegian designer Monica Stålvang. Anette is wearing sample size 2 (93.5 cm/36.75 inches bust circumference) with 0.5 cm/0.25 inches negative ease and she stands 173 cm/5’8 inches tall.
In the side photo you can see the side seam and the stockinette stitch sleeve. The dress is worked in the round to the top of the skirt part, the top layer is worked separately and joined with an overlap then back and forth separately to the shoulders. The body and the shoulders are shaped for a better fit. All hems are worked with 2 sets of circular needles held parallel.
Yarn kits will soon be available directly from Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk, while the individual pattern is currently being test knitted, before its release on Ravelry in both English and Norwegian.
