HandMade: The Everlong Crochet Maxi Dress.

Here is my first project, gearing up for the Spring weather, that is slowly easing our way. From last last's week's, What's on my hook?" I found this fabric at a sale bin at Walmart and I instantly knew exactly what I wanted to create. A crochet and maxi fusion dress, something I have dabbled in, in the early stages of this blog. [Click for memory lane] Definitely something that I plan on creating in different styles and so forth.

The entire dress is hand sewn together, though I do have a sewing machine, I love to do everything from scratch! It's a lot of work, but I love it and it entirely does not feel like it. The style of this dress is a bit more streamlined, the next one will entirely be even more free flowy and all that cool hippie feel style that I dig ever so much!

Project Details:
The yarn I used was Caron Simply Soft Yarn in the color of Autumn Haze.
The hook I used was a J/10-6.00MM.
The pattern was entirely experimental, from a design I sketched.
The fabric was from Walmart.
*Pattern will be available sometime this year!
Note: My headband is from a DIY I created. [click here
