Variegated yarn – crochet dress

This project was started in December as a Variegated top, then I came across another 3 balls of Ella yarn and made this longer version. Surely 6 balls of Ella yarn (954 m or 1043 yards) would not be enough for this dress, so many different grey yarns were mixed together:

I have undone all rows of my top up to armholes and crocheted this dress with fewer increases towards the bottom. I haven’t described the process from the armholes to bottom here (was busy mixing light and dark grey colours :)), so there will be no row-by-row dress pattern. I could write some suggestions for turning the Pliability – variegated top into such a dress, but it will be more like a recipe from armholes to bottom.

Loom Crochet Skirt – detailed PATTERN

This maxi skirt comes with panels of standout flower motifs worked on the crochet loom. The hip-hugging style widens from knees for comfortable walking and falls to a flattering maxi length for dramatic effect. The skirt looks great with a top tank, jacket, swimming suit (without slip skirt). It even can be worn as a strapless dress – just lift it over your bust, the skirt has an elastic waistband. Alternating panels of flower and square motifs will surely add visual interest to your holiday look.

HOW to CROCHET dress in a few days – PATTERN

Initially I wanted to crochet another dress, but it would require more time: HOW to CROCHET dress in a few days – PATTERN HOW to CROCHET dress in a few days – PATTERN HOW to CROCHET dress in a few days – PATTERN HOW to CROCHET dress in a few days – PATTERN HOW to CROCHET dress in a few days – PATTERN 

My husband noticed:

H: I bet you will not finish it this year! And even if you do, you won’t be able to take good photos in late autumn.

Me: Really? The forecast is good this weekend …

H: Yea, but this thing hardly covers your bust! (indeed! :)) It’s a lot of work!

Me: What would you say if I finish it as a mini dress by Sunday? 🙂

H: Lol, but not just covering your butt a bit!!! 🙂 Not any cheap hooker look, you shall look decent in your age so we could go to a restaurant together! Ok, I’m pretty sure you won’t finish it, so I can promise you that cone of yarn (pointing out at one of my cones and laughing).

Me: You must be kidding 🙂 Ok, deal! And you will help me with photos, right? 🙂

I had a long way to go till I finish the flared skirt and just 3 evenings till the weekend. Since he’s mentioned the length, but not the width of the skirt I decided to crochet it straight, making only two increases for hips. Luckily the silk yarn stretched a bit and the length was almost perfect! Well, I had no time to dry this silk dress properly after washing. So, I put my moist project on a radiator for drying, hope it won’t damage the fiber. Here is the result and I’m expecting a new cone :). Great incentive! 🙂

Crochet dress with oval motifs – PATTERN

In this crochet mini dress both oval motifs in front and back accentuate the waist line. Even with not well defined waist my figure looks more feminine and closer to the hourglass body shape (my difference between hips and waist is just 20 cm/7.9”). The mini dress looks great at cocktail parties, shopping tours, beach strolls – wear it anywhere:

Crochet SKIRT Odd Molly – detailed PATTERN (scroll down)

This skirt was also inspired by the Odd Molly design, however I put my changes into it. First of all I wanted to try Tenerife crochet (with circular crochet loom) for the round motives. Then instead of boring crochet net (5 chains, 1 sc) I’ve completely changed the main pattern. Here how it looks like:

In summer I wear it with a top and in spring or fall it looks wonderfully with a jacket. More photos (all are clickable!):

Definitely maxi skirt is a thing everybody pays attention to : )). It can be easily transformed to a strapless dress (it has an elastic band).

Though I’ve realized that big square motif on a belly  looks gorgeous on a model that poses 10-15 minutes for a camera but completely unpractical in real life – it becomes shifted after 5-10 minutes walking.  So, I’ve decided to repeat the same skirt without annoying belly motif – I got tired turning it back in place every now and then. The new skirt will be with the complete loop of square motifs in the top of the skirt (uninterrupted by big square motif) like in this photos:

Designer crochet dress – PATTERN

Inspired by my favorite Lisa Maree I’ve changed her beach tunic the way I like better. The original oval motif placed over belly had a slight inkling of pregnancy (especially on non-model figures). Moving ovals lower could have not desirable effect on the back where ovals would be placed over buttocks with cleavage right between oval motifs. Still, the whole idea was worth pondering over. After a while I reworked the beach dress into such a version (all photos are clickable):

Designer dress with Bullion Crochet Stitch

Inspired by my favorite Odd Molly I’ve changed their dress https://conceptcreativeblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/53659-s-395.jpg the way I like better (since I’ve already used the frontal pineapple-pattern in my another project https://conceptcreativeblog.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/odd-molly-1/

All pieces in this dress are connected as you go; you will learn how to recognize all charted stitches by following written instructions for each module-part and comparing how described stitches look like in diagrams (module-parts in this dress are round and square motifs used in the bottom of the dress, round motif in the centre of the front, main pattern, bottom edge).

Indeed –  the idea was to make a unique dress that looks great on any figure :). This dress is my favorite for now!
