I love crochet. I love dresses.  Crochet dresses fascinate me . My First Crochet Dress was the first garment I made in my new found home, ocean away from my motherland.

Vanessa Montoro is one of my favorite crochet designers. I have been following her career for several years. And every time, with every new collection she keeps surprising and inspiring me with her creations.

This dress is my favorite.
