Indie design Gift a long

Thank you very much for participating in Ravelry Indie-design-Gift-a-Long!

I was curious about my most purchased patterns during this event. No wonder that sweaters were in the overwhelming majority with over 67 % of all purchases (winter has come ❄️❄️❄️). Then you wanted to make one of my favorite skirts – Skirt Integrity   – I’m really glad it caught your attention!

The stats look like this (in per cents):

Colorful sweater Ozone, crochet 18.6 %
Origami sweater Heuristic, knit 18.6 %
Ambiance Origami sweater, crochet  14.0 %

Was my participation worth it? I can not say yet because sales don’t interest me – I look forward to seeing your beautiful sweaters, skirts, tops, and dresses created from my patterns.🤗🤗🤗

Happy crafting and Happy Holidays!

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.
