wpid-IMG_20130609_224755.jpgYet another shirt I shrunk out of. I hand sewed it to take it in around the bust. Then crocheted trim to it and from there became this. It looks great on. I should mention, when crocheting down the neck, you must tack it on to the shirt.

wpid-IMG_20130609_224708.jpgIn losing weight, I was left with tons of clothes that are too big. This was a pair of jeans that I cut the legs off of and took in by sewing by hand. So the trick here is to choose a pattern. Sew some yarn to the bottom of the skirt. From the yarn, crochet a pattern that leavs small holes to show off your legs. It doesn’t show off much.

wpid-IMG_20130525_074738.jpgI originally made this as another cover-up to a tank to keep cool in the winter. Simply crochet around your bust. Then crochet down from there as long as you want for whatever pattern you like. Also, crochet straps on and make sure to outline the straps from durability. This started out as a top, but became a dress and I had to take in the bust area and lift the straps.

wpid-IMG_20130525_075022.jpgCheck out what I came up with! Shear material with a hole cut in the middle for the head and crocheted ends. I also sewed some great flower ribbon for the neck. This is great to wear with a tank top. wpid-IMG_20130525_075051.jpg
