Crochet and Fabric Dress

This would fit in red or green I guess?

scrap acrylic yarn.
1 1/2 yds of any fabric
invisible plastic snap
scissors
sewing machine
yard stick
iron
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.

    Funny you should say that about voting more than once. You see sometimes people make sockpuppets to vote a whole bunch of times for the same instructable. It's super obvious when the profiles are created right before they vote/comment, have nothing but excessive praise, and post a few minutes apart. Why sometimes the sockpuppet's names really similar and use similar language!!!!

    Yea my sweet husband went and threatened his whole family with death unless they went here to vote, and his coworkers also...lol. I thought it was sweet, and it isnt going to make any difference anyway. I busted him the other day and he finally admitted it to me. :)

    People jokingly started calling me "Rags" cause I make clothes from other peoples rags. Would love to wear this dress to rid myself of the nickname! Beautifully done & designed!!!
