Last summer I started this skirt.(finished this summer shh) And it was so lovely to wear. The yarn was bought at a cheap shop for about 5 $/ piece. The pattern was very easy to follow, but mine was a bit tight so I should probably have crocheted with a larger hook size.
With a crocheted skirt you’d need a petticoat and since I go could not bear to sew myself I bought two skirts from a skilled lady on etsy named Myolygirl that sew them. My crochet skirt was much shorter but since I wanted it to go below the knees I kept on for a some extra rounds. I invented the edge myself and it is not as described in the pattern. Pattern can be found here: Jolimar skirt
From the patternsite:
I think it turns out just fine!
It bin a long while, but I’m still here. I hope you are still following me. I plan to give out a bigger pattern with 3 sizes on the wraparoundbody pattern.. Its improved. You can get it in the book Handmade. it was very fun to contribute to a book sold all over Norway.. If you just want the pattern have some patience until fall.
Now I have actually sewn some in this year but not so much that I wanted. This house and job takes a way the evening hours and soo soo tired some times. This summer I have managed to sew and crochet 3 dresses. It’s a very popular pattern in the sewing community in Norway and everyone makes them, so I had to make some myself. Love to combine crochet and fabric and its easy and fast enough to do in 3 free evenings. since we have vacations I’ve managed to make it in 2 weeks or so. The pattern is Dale 27707. I think is some danish translations somewhere out there but don’t remember. I let you know. Edit: Found it
I made it in three different versions. 3, 4 and 5 years. The pattern goes to 3 years but its very simple to justify to bigger sizes.The biggest dresses are given away for some late birthday present and the smallest its given to my now three year old daughter. I think she loves it too
Happy summer and I will get back to you all soon
So I spent about 60 hours witch this creations. It look like maybe 10, but to crochet a tunic takes like forever? I got a little tired during the making of the skirt but happy to get true it. Its my fist crochet garment and I’am quite happy witch the result. The recipe you can find here, but it’s just in one size. A slim japanese girl hehe. But you can easy ajust it. I think crochet takes a lot more time than knitting but I love it
I most have something to do while I watch a boring movie my husbands sets on. Sewing is not that very sosial and with crocheting I can do both. This two things light up my kitchen and its very simple to make. The cloth is made from rows of half double crochet and edging around with picot. The soapbottle-cover is just simple single crochet stich around in a tubular form until you get the hich you need.
Been a while sins my last post, but I got a new job, that I love by the way. Not so much time to sew but 5 minutes here and there and 2-3 hours. Sewing is my big THING so I always make room for it! This skirt have all of the little timesaving’s. The fabric is a big scrap I got from a nice lady who came to my doorstep. the crochet edge and flowers are done on the ferry(Have to take a ferry to work so I just learned to crochet too!) I love to learn new thing and some of the best tip I found was how to sew a invisible zipper with a normal foot and how to fully line it. The skirt is a little to big in the waist for me so I think I sell it. Think I was bigger haha
