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.

Futuristic: Crochet dress PATTERN

We spent last weekend in southern Italy – needed a relaxing getaway after rather stressful October. Surely, knitting and crocheting are great and peaceful hobbies, but sometimes it’s better to explore nice places to refresh one’s mind from the usual daily routine. Those sitting the whole day at the office need crocheting in the evening 😊 active movements for maintaining muscle health and fresh air for their immune system. That’s why walking or riding a bicycle are my preferable activities.

It was raining on Sunday, and rather dark and gloomy for good photos, but our trip was still charming and atmospheric. Besides, we know that there is more oxygen in the air when it rains 😊.

We took several pics in Alberobello – a small town in Puglia region (also called the “heel of the Italian boot”).

Walking in my Futuristic Dress:

Enjoying our dinner there:

The Alberobello houses (called Trulli) are built without using mortar or cement, so that they could be easily demolished (has anybody ever tried? :))

The vast majority of these houses  have one room under each conical roof, with additional living spaces in arched alcoves. A multi-room trollo house has many cones, each representing a separate room. The thick stone walls and dome of the trullo that cool pleasantly during the summer, are very unpleasant during the colder winter months, condensing the moisture given off by cooking and breathing, making it difficult to feel warm even in front of the fire. The trulli have an open fireplace and a stone-built chimney stack (rising high above the roof). Because of their design, trulli are difficult to heat: the walls are very thick and warm air will rise up the interior cone. The inhabitants simply leave the doors open during the day to keep the interior dry, and live more outdoors than in.

Yes, I wore my #futuristicdress there 😊 It was finished and published on Ravelry in January and I still love and wear it. How often have you worn your Crochet dress? 😉

Yarn:

Fingering / 4 ply / 300 m in 100 gr / 330 yards in 3.5 oz

Producers label such a yarn as 4 or 5 ply (UK, AU), Sport or Fingering (USA) therefore please check the length in each ball.

Total yarn usage is 2100 – 2400 yards (1920 – 2200 m) depending on your size.

 

And if you have an office job like me – it’s time to move a bit. I know, Churchill said “Never stand up when you can sit down, and never sit down when you can lie down” but seriously – sitting continuously is bad for people. I follow these tips to decrease the risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes etc:

  • Take stairs instead of elevator whenever possible.
  • Try to keep a good posture while working at my desk (most difficult 😊).
  • My desk is far from the door, so I have to walk farther.
  • I stand whenever I can (rather than sit), and when I have to wait for something or someone I try to walk rather than stand or sit.
