El elemento que ves recomendados anteriormente originalmente iba a ser parte de mi línea de vestido de ganchillo reasingado. Hice el frente (que ves aquí) y realmente me gustó. However I then had trouble with the back and it ended up as one of my recent frogging projects. I frogged the back off of it and was going to start over with a new back, but now that I’ve had it sitting here for a little bit, I’m thinking it might work better as is, as an apron instead of a dress.
The yellow part of the dress was the top part of a tank top that I purchased for a couple of bucks at Goodwill for the specific purpose of adding crochet to it for my repurposed dress project. After cutting off the rest of the fabric from the tank, I was left with what’s basically a yoke that goes over the head.
Originally I thought I’d make a dress front-and-back style instead of in-the-round like I normally do. I did that with Lion’s Brand Fisherman’s Wool in what’s basically ribbed treble crochet with a few openwork design rows in the middle of the piece. I really liked how the front came out. Sin embargo, the front is actually wider than is ideal so I had some trouble making the back. It didn’t help that I ran out of that yarn and tried to be creative with a flash of pink on the back. The whole thing just didn’t work so the back got completely taken off recently and will now be part of my in-the-work crochet art project called Swaddle.
Yesterday I went to go figure out what I wanted to do with this and I put it over my head to get some ideas. Cuando lo hice, I realized that it is actually shaped a lot like an apron right now. And I started thinking that perhaps it’s actually better as an apron than as a dress. I’m a bit undecided because I think I would wear it as a dress if I got the back right. And the truth is I probably won’t wear it as an apron because I never use an apron (because I barely cook) so it would have to be an item to sell or give away. But I think I might like it better as an apron anyway. I’m thinking about getting rid of the pink tie and choosing a different color that isn’t as shocking. And if it’s going to be an apron then it needs at least one pocket in front … perhaps a kind of funky pocket like a flower shape or something? Así, it’s still a WIP. Vamos a ver.
