Just made this cotton print dress. Methinks the 1960s style needs some white go-go boots to complete the outfit. This one of a kind sample is a size 8, $80. Made in your size as a custom order would be a bit more, of course.
So you’ve seen me crocheting necklaces, and purses; now here is both at once. Amulet bags go around your neck so you can carry something special close to your heart: a lucky penny, a crystal, a ring you can’t wear on your hand. Or you can carry something practical like a spare key or bus fare. The beads make a nice texture; come over and feel it this Saturday.
Hooray for silly hats! I knitted this candy corn hat out of acrylic yarn. I made it to go with a skirt I made in candy corn fabric.
It is one from my collection of summer skirts, which will make their debut this weekend at Hydra Comic Con. They are knee length, with a nice twirl, and most importantly: two pockets.
Having some fun designing with beads. These reticules take quite a while to crochet, because the stitches need to be tight enough that nothing can poke out through the holes (even a bobby pin, or the tip of a pencil).
The grey and black one was a commission, which also included these matching gloves.
I have made many waistcoats over the years, but this was my first one with piping going all the way around. Piping is made by sewing bias strips around a narrow cotton cord, and it provided the purple edge you see in these pictures.
The back laces up, 1830s style, for decorative adjustability. And here you see close up, my painstaking matching of the printed pattern.
While constructing a tailcoat recently, I refreshed my memory of varying collar shapes. Here you see the difference between a coat that is meant to be worn closed, vs. a coat that is meant to be worn open. My pattern lines are the sewing lines; no seam allowances here.
