Crochet and Sew Dress

I realised a few days ago that I hadn't told you about this sweet project........... and it is also a TA-DAH!


My creation came from something I saw in a magazine, it wasn't quite right as I needed adjustable straps (if I'm going to invest time in making something, I need it to last!!!)  So I came up with this.......

Here's a closer look..........

Do you like the sweet little buttons?

This other dress also had the same sized back and front, apart from saving on some rows on crochet, I just thought it would look nicer with a slightly lower back, like this.......

I got the pattern for the skirt bit from this pattern.................

I had previously used it to make this yo-yo embellished dress and thought it was an ideal skirt.  I simply machine stitched it onto the crochet top leaving a little edge of crochet overhanging like this...........

Tiddly Toes (who is no longer so Tiddly and I may have to start calling her Little Lady!) is thrilled with it, we can't wait for some sun.

So there you are, all up to date on that one, I shall be back soon with a May update, a charity project and a skirt that I first told you about here!

Until then have yourself some happy hooky, sewing, baking fun!
