CALLUNA: Mini Dress or Bodysuit

Crafted from 100% cotton, this design is defined by a plunging V-neckline and vertical waist pattern that makes the waist look slimmer. Length can be adjusted to fit your torso length. The bell-sleeves are added at the end and worked to desired length. Sleeves can be omitted as well – check how a sleeveless test-project looks like.

Evergreen, Calluna or Heathers are beautiful plants that change color year-round, injecting vivid life into our landscape at a time when we need it most. I thought of naming it Heather, however, it would be impossible to find this pattern in huge Ravelry Heather-database :)).

Thank you, Teresa, Debby, Alexandra and Helen for your generous help and assistance in testing these bodysuit and mini dress patterns.

Trendy hoodie PATTERN with round motifs – 2018 it was published, see what to make next

When I reached the armholes I thought of simplifying the process – follow the oversize-trend and make drop shoulders with straight sleeves. But a closer look at any project with such construction revealed huge hanging pieces at armholes. Do I want to make another beautiful top or finish it as soon as possible, and even use more yarn than it’s needed at armholes? So again, I made my normal set-in sleeves :). Maybe there are women who look beautiful in oversize clothes – it’s easy to crochet any T-shape, but garments that fit well are still more appealing to me.

Similar crochet tunic features beautiful cold shoulder cut outs allowing you to be elegant and sexy without being overexposed. This is one of my favorite styles, partly because it suits not only young girls but classy women who like to wear feminine and trendy crochet garments. And partly because this tunic is so versatile and flattering! Want to look instantly cool? Pair it with fitted jeans and basic tops to show off your tanned shoulders. For bohemian appeal team it with long skirts and fancy earrings.
