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.
