A while ago, in a fit of creativity, I decided make a crochet dress. I hadn’t crocheted since I was a little kid, helping my mom make squares for a quilt. But after seeing Ms Erica B’s creation, I was truly inspired (isn’t she fabulous?). And she made it in a month? GADS!
Now <cough> <cough> two years later, I finally finished MINE!
Yep, there were a lot of mornings at Starbucks, airline flights with curious onlookers, fighting off cats and A LOT of swearing before it was done. This is a Lily Chin pattern. For those that are interested in making it, the link to the pattern is here. I used Panda Cotton Bamboo Yarn, available here. It has a nice soft feel to it.
Like Erica B., I took out the top part of the bodice, to give it more of a sweetheart neckline. I made a simple slip dress as a lining out of lining knit from Joann’s.
Of course, now that it is November, that means I will have to wait until next spring to wear it. Bah, humbug!
