Found Object



I was going through my box of vintage lace the other day, looking for some trim for my future embellished tunic dress, when I found this already-been-crocheted bodice. Somehow, I didn't even know I had it — probably didn't care about crocheted bodices before I went and made some. It fit my sister, so I paired it up with some nice vintage feedsack-ish fabric and sewed it up. I used the same pattern as previously. A couple of flat fell seams and a little seam binding and it was finished. Sweet. Did I mention how much easier this was than the ones that I had to crochet myself? I can't imagine using crochet thread. It was hard enough with the yarn.

That is so gorgeous! One of these days I'm gonna try my hand at making clothes. It scares me, though.

You know, it had never occurred to me to combine crochet with sewing. And this top (and the dress) are so gorgeous, I'm starting to wonder why I didn't snag all the crochet bits & pieces I've been seeing in thrift stores. Ah well.
