Would People Wear This?

I recently found a pattern in my Amazing Crochet Lace book to make a dress. It’s called the “Heat Wave Mini-Dress.” (For some reason, the hardcover version of that book on Amazon is OVER $1000.00! O_O!)

It looks cute, but as with my original fear with making a yarn based dressed, it’s not tightly knit. I would most likely have to:
1. wear nude colored underwear or,
2. learn to sew, and sew some fabric underneath or,
3. hope the dress over pants trend returns. (Wait, is it still a thing?)

(But, seriously, if anyone wants this dress, it is a size small, email me or leave a comment below. You’ll have to figure out the above mentioned problem on your own.)

It’s also warm, because I used wool. Hm, I need to think about my fabric choices better in the future.

This is a seamless dress, which means it is all made in one round, and I didn’t have to sew anything together. You start with the halter top, followed by the open crossed mid-section (your belly is showing! Gasp!), and finally, the skirt. The pattern has the skirt to be MUCH shorter, but I’m not that bold.

Overall, I’m satisfied with the end result. Not too bad.

Happy Independence Day for those in America! Until next time, happy crocheting!

  1. This is a very cute dress (although I am a bit over the age to wear it! ). It might work out better with a cotton sports yarn? I love doing one piece projects but sometimes I also find that the patterns that need to be sewn together tend to not shift as much when worn. I like your idea of sewing in material under it but maybe just the skirt part to keep it in place. I love that color and it looks cute on you!
