I've been reading some of your great sewing blogs and have gotten into a sewing mood again! However I am still in love with crochet and all the new looks using it from the designers. Therefore, I've decided to challenge myself this summer with mixing the two skills. I"m going to try to make (and show you) some things that have both "hook and needle" skills in the outfits. Here's my first combined outfit:
The dress is a pattern from the new Vogue Knitting CROCHET magazine. Yes, that's right, crochet has become so popular that conservative old Vogue magazine has just published a magazine dedicated to "hooking"! This was actually listed as a "bathing suit" cover-up----No WAY would I have worn it as that so the sewing part came in making a co-ordinating simple slip/dress to wear under it---my "crochet" friends seem to be more impressed by that than the dress!
Stay tuned for more in my self-challenge Sew/Crochet (or maybe knit) projects----I have boxes of patterns, fabric and yarn to work with! peg
