I can’t believe this project took me so long . I started it last spring, but was always interrupted with other WIPs. I finally finished it in November. Do you recognize the stitch? One of my favorite. I completely forgot the name of the Japanese magazine where I saw it for the first time. It always happens to me. I just have to start writing things down.
This project is basically a modification of the top that I made for myself some time ago.
I made it with the same yarn that I used for the top and for my Textured Jacket. I love this 100% cotton of neutral shade. Can’t get enough of it.
After all modifications I got this.
Can I just say that I love it?!!!! It turned out exactly how I planned it to be. The shaping is pretty much non-existent. The waist is accentuated with the simple single crochet tie. I made it around 25 cm longer than a crochet top with side slits and modified the neckline, turning it into V-neck.
This crochet tunic is very versatile. It can be worn as a beach cover up, or worn with white pants and a neutral top underneath, or as a short dress with an underslip. It has this vintage look that I absolutely adore.
I know that I am being very bad at taking notes, while crocheting/knitting my projects. I promise I’ll be more organized and try to share with you more information on the process. So far, I hope you’ll find some inspiration here.
