long time no see

hello there :-)

remember  me?

It would seem like I took a sewing break in those last 6 months, well, that is almost true. I only made a handful of kids t-shirts and sweatshirts which are well loved by the missy but never seemed to make it in front of the camera.

I started on this dress during the Xmas holidays and it has been hanging over the dress form for a week as I thought it looked a bit boring and I had no idea on what to do with it. Then I felt like flicking through my crochet magazines and it hit me: a crochet collar. It being a saturday evening in Austria with all handycraft stores closed, I had to work with what I had at home - thus making the collar a bit chunkier than it was supposed to be :o)

Pattern: Ottobre design woman 5/2013, Model 4 knit dress with raglan sleeves, size 34
Crochet collar: from a japanese craft book, ISBN978-4-8347-3542-0
