Dummy is wearing this as we speak!
Yes, crochet takes a long time, so why not speed things up and combine it with sewing?
The bottom part is a long simple rectangle of silk dupioni that I have
wrapped around the Dummy then started to create box pleats: the same day I have read on Burda Style how to create the box pleats. What a coincidence!! We were on the same wave length.
The top part has been carefully crochet by a pen friend of mine from Romania, Danny. Apparently pen pawls still exist! We’ve met on Etsy and share different but similar passions: she crochets and I sew.
She sent me a link today in the email. It lead directly to her brand new online shop, filled with pretty crochet wear. Check it out!
P.S. My dress is still in the making, so check back soon!
