GARNET: Dress or Top

Elegance should be enduring, it should transcend fashion and trends and focus on something that is beautifully eternal. This pattern is written to bring out your feminine proportions, even if they are somewhat hidden :). This Garnet Dress or Top will suit girls and women who, like me, have broad shoulders, thin arms, rectangular body type, not well-defined waist, a small tummy (or none at all) and who want to make a wearable crocheted piece. This tutorial offers instructions for making adjustments to your figure (if you are smaller or taller), create an off-shoulder garment, or finish it with more covered neckline. Instructions for crocheting more solid rows at bust level are included.

Design elements:

  • Raglan decreases create an optical illusion of smaller shoulders comparing to classical round yokes that look best on narrow-shouldered women. Broad shoulders and thin arms are covered with small cup sleeves made simultaneously with front and back (without cutting off the yarn for crocheting each sleeve).
  • Raised back neck gives more comfortable fit, while accented waist creates more flattering and feminine silhouette.
  • This project is worked seamlessly in the round, in two directions: from bust towards the neckline, then from bust towards the hem. It allows to choose the best fit for your bust and desired coverage at neckline (while you would need to decide about neckline-coverage right away if you crochet the whole garment from the top down).

UNQUESTIONABLE – Crochet Dress Pattern

This crochet dress pattern is perfect for those who look for something easy, seamless, and something that can be adjusted to your own figure for the best fit. The upper part is my crop top (I named it To Crop or Not To Crop Top – Question?) that I could not stop crocheting until it ended at my ankles :).

The skirt falls from the waist, wrapping around the hips and widening to create a beautiful flow and drape. The neckline is modest, scooped with a feminine crochet design around the edge. One button at the back allows for a secure fit around your shoulders.

Crochet maxi dress – PATTERN

My own figure is far away from ideal hourglass woman’s shape – wide waist (the difference between hips and waist is less than 20 cm/7.8”), small bust, thin arms, broad shoulders, small hips with protruding bones at low waist and all these assets would look even more pathetic if I’d wear a wrong tight fit crochet dress :). Therefore I’ve modeled this dress in a way that girls with my type of figure can look gorgeous.

I have removed leaves at the sides present in this dress to define my waist even more. The curved lines are especially flattering and make the silhouette breathtaking: it highlights the best features of woman’s figure – underlines bust, optically defines waist and widens towards the bottom with proper increases for hips.

This project is crocheted from top down, starting at neck and working in the round to form neck opening and the beautiful leaf yoke. You can model your own mini or maxi dress as the top-down construction makes it possible to try it on as you go for the perfect fit. The skirt length can be adjusted; this skirt pattern is quite easy to remember.

Beach wedding crochet dress – PATTERN

Initially I wanted to lengthen the skirt in this dress and wear as a wedding gown for my 2nd marriage. Alas, already the weight of that knee length dress was 700 gr /24.6 oz, so wearing even heavier maxi dress in summer will be a terrible ordeal : ). I imagine American actors from Hitchcock movies wearing dark suits, vests and hats … in Morocco (The Man Who Knew Too Much). Really painful to watch them : ). Unless they have shot the movie in a studio : ).

So I’ve decided to crochet something with thinner cotton and finished such a beach wedding dress:

The length of the dress is 152 cm (60’’), it weights 590 gr/20.8 oz for size S/M. Calculated weight for size M/L is 650 gr/22.9 oz. The skirt length can be adjusted as you go, the skirt pattern is quite easy to remember.

I changed turquoise and white underdresses since they were easy to style for both a day and evening look and my arms were covered with a subtle veil. Quite feminine … if a bride is over 40 and still in a good shape :).
