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.S. One crocheter mentioned that I should wear undergarments – actually I do have it in every photo :).
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.
