Vogue Knitting Crochet dress




This is the Michael Kors crochet dress from Vogue Knitting issue Winter 2006/2007, that I blogged about. The yarn I used Gedifra Mayra was a pleasure to work with and I adore the color. It took me a while to figure out the right size to make since my yarn was a substitution, but once that was done the different stitches are easy to memorize. The skirt is worked in the round, the front and back separately but attached to the waistline, and then the sleeves are made and sewn in. This is the Ravelry link

Reverse single crochet is used on the neckline and the sleeve hems

Am I proud of my dress?, oh yes! I really like how well the dress fits. This is my second crochet garment, the first was this skirt.

  7. Ravelry is a site where you can find information on many knitting and crochet patterns. In your account you can catalog all the projects you work on and information like needle sizes, yarns and any changes you make to the pattern. It is like Patternreview.com for knitting/crocheting! It is free to sign up.
    The pattern for this dress is in the magazine Vogue Knitting Winter 2006/2007; they have patterns available for sale at their website, but I don't know if this one is one of them.
    Thank you so much for commenting!
