Crochet dress completion

It took time (although not as long as I thought) and perseverance (although not as much as I thought, except the part where I made a mistake and had to unravel 20 rows!) but the dress is finally done! I didn’t put on the collar as I felt it was too fussy and with the yarn I had used I thought I would have great difficulty getting it over my head. I did some rather extensive blocking to stretch the dress into an appropriate size and I still think it is more of a tunic (clearly I am not as bold as a girl from the 60s!)

I think it has come out rather well! It certainly preserves the 60s/70s aesthetic and the colour is bang on trend both for the SS13 and AW13 collections on the catwalk.

241 skirt – completion

Martia and Venetia slept in shifts. This meant the mind was always active although the body still needed to rest. They hid out in abandoned warehouses down by the east river waiting for the moment they could slip onto a cargo hauler that would take them away. Away to one of the libertarian states where pluralism was encouraged.


The 241 skirt is finally complete! I overlayed the blue long skirt onto the red skirt I described in the last post:

I added a cotton webbing belt, fastened with a quick fasten luggage style clasp.


I made this skirt a size 6 UK and I must say it was a squeeze getting it on to model!

This skirt will soon be up for sale in my Etsy shop:

I really loved the asymmetric style of this skirt and I already have an idea to use it again…. watch this space …
