Crochet on the Runways

I can't believe it's been over a year since I had the wonderful visit and fabric shopping trip with Shams, Carolyn and Noile.   I see by their blogs that they are all still sewing wonderful things. Even though I don't comment much I love reading what they and you other bloggers are sewing!

 ME? I've only been sewing enough to make outfits to go with my new love--CROCHET.  I've known how to crochet for ages but have freshened up my skills since I see it everywhere in the new collections this spring.    Here are some of my creations:

I made a long black dress to wear under this crocheted skirt so there wouldn't be an extra slip layer.

I did make the Sewing Workshop Hudson pants and top to go with my crocheted assymetrical sweater.

I made this skirt as a joke for my friend Diane (a professional knitter)  to show her that crocheted "Granny Squares" can be trendy too!

I made another SW outfit to go under this crocheted sweater and purse.

My next endeavor with my hook will be to try to copy some pricey Missoni crocheted skirts that I've seen  so stay tuned and keep sewing, knitting and crocheting!  It's all Good!
