|Upcycled Crochet Dress|
The last time I crocheted anything was back in the 70's! But you know, it's like riding a bicycle - it all comes back to you! LOL! Evenutally!!!!
|Layers of Crochet|
In regards to the vintage slip. I chose a pale peach color that looks wonderful under white - very flesh-tone so it gives an elusion. I crocheted a six inch portion to match the same pattern as the top and attached it by hand to the bottom of the slip. The middle portion was actually resqued from a linen skirt. I took that an attached it to the vintage slip. Then on the bottom of the slip I attached a vintage pleated nylon lace from another vintage slip. I love the over-all look. Had some left-over fabric from the trim and made it into a small rose and put a pin-enclosure on the back.
In regards to the top being worn by itself, say over a pair of blue-jeans, I crocheed a large white flower, as shown in the last picture. I really did have a lot of fun with this garment even though it was very time-consuming - got to watch a lot of TV!
Currently this garment is on it's way to "Altered Couture" Magazine for a photo-shoot for one of their up-coming issues. If interested in this garment, I can have it back here to ship-out in three weeks.
