You saw this dress a little while ago when it was still a WIP dress but now it’s finished and styled differently. Last time it has the granny squares on the bottom, which I finally sucked it up and frogged and completed the dress without them. I’m happy with how it’s turned out. The dress itself is kind of shapeless so in the original fashion attempt I paired it with a corset but today I paired it with a tank top and slip that provide shape underneath. I like how the shape has a bit of that mod 60s feel.

Most of the dress is openwork treble crochet but the neck is a more detailed texture of crochet post stitches.

I always crochet looser towards the end of a project than the beginning. I’ve actually learned to adapt to this, though, not just by paying attention to fix it (which I do for some projects) but also by using it to my advantage to create increase-size project without having to actually add increases (a technique I often use when making my own crochet dresses).
