365 Ways to Wear Crochet: Blue Fingerless Gloves

Okay, I’ll admit that this outfit doesn’t really work for me. There’s too much going on and it’s not quite right. I wanted to wear my new blue fingerless gloves that I crocheted. And I’m trying to find a way to make the dress work because I love the print but there’s just something about it that never quite looks flattering no matter what I put on over or under it. Darn. What I do love here is the color story:

  1. CoalescentCrochet

    I see why you love the material in this dress. I think the problem is the gathers right beneath your bust. Your ribcage down to your waist looks like the skinniest part of you. If you played that up with a dirndl (http://dirndlstore.com/) type of bodice of bodice you’d be more balanced. I don’t know where you get that sort of bodice by itself (maybe crochet one?), but at that website you’ll get the idea.

    • @CoalescentCrochet Hm, interesting idea. I don’t think the dirndl is quite right for me but this does make me think that perhaps I should pull out some of my corsets and see if they work with this dress before I give up on it. I think you’re right on about the reason that the dress shape isn’t working on me.

  2. I see a silver shrug working with that outfit.
    Yes, that would look fab!
