Inventing New Sights. A Vintage Dream Mashup.

I have been wanting for quite a long time to mix the two things I adore so much, fabric and crochet into items that I could wear daily! Everything that I have in mind, I would entirely wear so it feels marvelous that I am actually attempting to create these ideas I have had for awhile now!

Red Heart Stripes. Buttons. Fabric Cuts. Fabric.    
My first attempt was this pencil skirt, I purchased the fabric from Hobby Lobby, I fell in love with it simply because I am floral is one of the quite the loveliest pattern out there. First, I sewed  (that sounds weird) and hemmed the skirt together then I crocheted an olive drab green yarn and sewed it upon the top of the skirt. Placing a pink ribbon that matches the skirt into the crochet band for that ruched effect. I can wear the dress as a high waist skirt and also as a dress woot!

 My second attempt is this lovely dark floral fabric, so I made it into a strapless dress. This time I crocheted a naples yellow band and set a black ribbon inside for the ruching. Also, an exposed zipper is sewn into the back of the dress. I absolutely love this dress and cannot wait a single minute until Spring comes! I am so ready for warm spring days I cannot even begin to explain! Another thing, I wish I had made pockets for this dress, maybe next time I will work on that detail for I have been spoiled with a lot of rad dresses that accommodate my desire to set my hands in.

oh my peter pan tights.

 I have a few more ideas for more intertwining of fabric and crochet ideas to conjure up, I can't wait to make them!
