Dare You Wear This?
No, I haven't lost my mind and started a new range of clothing! This is a commission I have been working on for a university student as part of her collection. It is crocheted from cut up tights using a 1960's dress pattern. I would not recommend crocheting with cut up tights - it has to be the hardest material ever for wear and tear to the thumbs and wrists - not sure why, perhaps due to trying to keep the tension right with a very stretchy and sometimes lumpy strand.
I have a feeling that whoever has to model this will get very warm - I kept wondering why I was experiencing hot flushes whilst working on this and then realised it was due to the half inch layer of nylon covering my lap!
Next up, a gold crocheted bra for the same client - could be interesting...
