Beach wedding crochet dress – PATTERN

Initially I wanted to lengthen the skirt in this dress and wear as a wedding gown for my 2nd marriage. Alas, already the weight of that knee length dress was 700 gr /24.6 oz, so wearing even heavier maxi dress in summer will be a terrible ordeal : ). I imagine American actors from Hitchcock movies wearing dark suits, vests and hats … in Morocco (The Man Who Knew Too Much). Really painful to watch them : ). Unless they have shot the movie in a studio : ).

So I’ve decided to crochet something with thinner cotton and finished such a beach wedding dress:

The length of the dress is 152 cm (60’’), it weights 590 gr/20.8 oz for size S/M. Calculated weight for size M/L is 650 gr/22.9 oz. The skirt length can be adjusted as you go, the skirt pattern is quite easy to remember.

I changed turquoise and white underdresses since they were easy to style for both a day and evening look and my arms were covered with a subtle veil. Quite feminine … if a bride is over 40 and still in a good shape :).

Off Shoulder Dress – PATTERN

This crochet dress comes in the season’s favourite off-the-shoulder style combining sexy upper part with the flattering A-line silhouette that gives this dress a balanced elegance. And if you need to change the look in seconds – move the upper part over shoulders.

The project is suitable for beginners thanks to a simple repeat of shell motifs used throughout. Apart from that there will be no increasing – the dress gets its beautiful shape by changing three hook sizes as you work. If you do not fancy making thick crochet garments for beginners this might be a fun dress to make and wear.

Combining crochet patterns with fabric – two inspiring projects

1. Crochet edging onto old fabric shirt:

Recently I’ve noticed that collar and cuffs in my MEXX shirt lost their original black colour and became somewhat grayish. Front, back and sleeves were made of another fabric (machine knitted) and remained black. So, I’ve decided to replace collar, plackets and cuffs with crocheted ones.

First of all, carefully cut them off:

cut off

Then I’ve cut a V-neck because it would be simpler to crochet a border all around. I’m not that good in sewing,  therefore asked a professional tailor to finish all raw edges with a thread serger.

Now choose a nice edge pattern. These shells from an old crochet magazine should look lovely in my shirt:

I had one ball of thin black rayon left from another project. Rayon is good for decorations because it is colourfast.

As far as I know rayon is no longer made in the USA – in 2004, the last of the U.S. rayon production facilities were closed due to EPA regulations.  Current rayon producing countries include China, India, and some European countries. You can use polyester which is also colourfast.  

Then I have worked chains until their length has reached the length of my plackets and bottom (all around), worked one row of single crochet stitches and sewed this foundation row to my shirt. For plackets I crocheted 4 rows of this chart over the row of single crochet (additional stitches should be added at the corners so that they remain flat). After finishing I’ve sewn on 4 buttons and made buttonholes on the opposite side.

For cuffs I had to improvise a little so my cuffs become 12 cm/4.7” long. I’ve made the same foundation row, worked 4 rows of the chart and then repeated 3rd and 4th rows in the checkerboard order until the desired length.

This is my new jacket (clickable photos):

It’s is a simple but gorgeous project for using up some yarn leftovers and brighten up your wardrobe. You don’t have to be a fashion designer to combine the two crafts but surely you will create a unique OOAK clothing in a snap.

2. Crochet top with fabric skirt:

I have seen many different projects lately for combining crochet and fabric. Since I had a few balls of pistachio colour that would not be enough for some serious project (I do not crochet scarfs, hats or doilies – I get bored with easy projects), I’ve decided to make top like in the famous crochet Victoria’s Secret dress and ask a professional tailor to sew the bottom.

This famous crochet dress by Victoria’s Secret is already sold out, but if you like to crochet, it’s not a problem to make your OWN creation! : ). A form fitting bodice teamed with a plunging V-neck make this irresistibly feminine silhouette. His head will spin as you walk by!  Here is the result (clickable photos):

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 dress PATTERN – boho style

Here is another great pattern: country boho style crochet dress. Crafted from thick cotton, this dress hugs the body from top to bottom to centre all the attention on you. Looks very nice over a slip dress with Grecian sandals.

Crochet dress pattern for sizes S-2XL. The perfect crochet cover-up to wear on resorts. Crafted from thick cotton, this dress hugs the body from top to bottom to centre all the attention on you.

The original dress was offered in internet shops and sold a while ago. But if you like to crochet, it’s not a problem to make your own creation! : )

It took a while, creating this pattern for many sizes – based on the available photos shown above. This picture looks like a similar dress, however by careful analyzing you will find that motifs at hips and bust levels are different – they have four corners. While the beautiful boho dress in both prairies photos (shown above) has six corners in the motifs!

I fell in love with the prairies photos and created crochet dress pattern with hexagon motifs (seen at hips and bust levels in both photos). The dress can be made longer – I can imagine a gorgeous maxi boho dress with another panel of hexagon motifs (at knees for example). Or make a nice crochet tunic – omit several rows in the bottom.
