PROPORTIONS: Dress or Top

Our intrinsic sense of what we consider beautiful often comes from symmetry and proportion. We often notice that some crochet garments make us look great and feel young, while others make our figures heavier. No design or color can make us look perfect if the proportions are wrong.

P.SOne crocheter mentioned that I should wear undergarments – actually I do have it in every photo :).

Design elements:

In this dress I tried to change the perception of my rectangular man-alike figure – combined feminine details like shell motifs that provided softer touch to my broad shoulders with triangles that optically created the proportional hourglass figure. The horizontal lines added more interest to the whole A-line garment, while the fringe-trimmed bottom created a moves-with-you modern silhouette.

This crochet pattern is provided for sizes:

XS with bust circumference 78-84 cm (31-33’’), hips up to 90 cm (35.5’’);

Off Shoulder Dress – PATTERN

This crochet dress comes in the season’s favourite off-the-shoulder style combining sexy upper part with the flattering A-line silhouette that gives this dress a balanced elegance. And if you need to change the look in seconds – move the upper part over shoulders.

Off shoulder crochet dress PATTERN for sizes XS-3XL Off shoulder crochet dress PATTERN for sizes XS-3XL

The project is suitable for beginners thanks to a simple repeat of shell motifs used throughout. Apart from that there will be no increasing – the dress gets its beautiful shape by changing three hook sizes as you work. If you do not fancy making thick crochet garments for beginners this might be a fun dress to make and wear.

Beach open back dress – PATTERN

The idea of this open back dress came when I had been fiddling with the crochet triangle that was actually intended for another garment, but simply would not have the proper shape. I was almost near to put it away and then placed over my bust. Hm… Not bad… It covered my bra completely and had the necessary straight shape to underline my waist. It would not be fair to undo the stitches as I’ve spent so much time with this triangle. In a couple of days the open back dress was finished:

It fits snugly around waist, widens towards the bottom and is quite stretchy.  Thin elastic band is inserted along the top of the dress to keep the proper shape and cover the bust. The dress features the diagonal pattern in the top and fits bra cup sizes A/B with bust circumference 88-95 cm (34.5-37.5’’). In the photos – bra cup B with bust all around 92 cm (36’’).

I’ve worn the dress with a silicon bra that made a nice C cup with bust all around 95 cm (37.5”). It was still ok but I’m not sure how cup C would look with other bust circumference.
