Introduction: Crochet and Fabric Dress
Finalist in the
BurdaStyle Fashion Challenge
This would fit in red or green I guess?
scrap acrylic yarn.
1 1/2 yds of any fabric
invisible plastic snap
size H needle may go smaller next time though
The top was crocheted without a pattern, I just eyed what I was doing and trying it on a lot, using a double stitch. I made two sets of ties in the front one for the fabric to go to the side a bit to make it an inch under the other side of the fabric like a wrap. The fabric was woven through the stitches in the front. The skirt portion I then gathered and sewed it onto the bottom part of the top.
I took a strip of the fabric around the back strap area giving it a bit of a slouch, and then continued it around to the front as a collar, and so nothing falls out I also added an invisible snap. The fabric is thin and I did not make a lining so I would wear some leggings under it but I didn't know what else to call it other than a dress, maybe long shirt? This is a size 10 because I was a size 10 when I got the dummy, but I have lost so much weight I couldn't fit it on me and work on it so I made it the dummy's size and am hoping to gain the weight back to wear it soon.
We have a be nice policy.
