I have been lazy when it comes to blogging this last couple of weeks. But I have been working hard on my dress. I have completed the section connecting two rounds of flower elements – and I think it looks great! Having tried it on several times, I have changed my plans on how many elements should be in various rounds so that dress would fit my body – for example, I originally planned that this section will be on hips, but it’s too big, as I can see now, so I think it’ll be at the very bottom – unless I take it apart and narrow it.
I am now working on the part that will be placed around my chest – hopefully to then connect it to the first yoke round. I then will be able to work my way down and try the dress on as I go.
My goal for now is to recreate this dress pictured below. I am using 100% cotton – Cotton Soft Speciale Baby by Lane Mondial (180m/50g). It’s not as shimmery as the yarn in the picture, so the overall effect will be slightly different. I am using US crochet terminology throughout. I am blogging in quite a detail to document for me and for anyone else who is interested the whole process. Click on tag “Red Dress” to see all related posts.
