Love Summer

The wind still has a bite in it but summer is around the corner so it's important to forward-plan!!!

Making a dress might be a thought - time to figure out patterns and then get the darn thing made!

I was immediately put in mind for this idea by the fashion section of the Sunday Observer last week. Stella McCartney often champions the craft industry by including knitwear and crochet and I love the dress/tunic at the top of the post.
Filet crochet is an area that is a little neglected in the pattern books and it is nice to see it brought right into style.

In my collection of vintage patterns I rustled up a great publication from 1976, McCall's Summer Crochet and I thought a pattern for the blog might get the ball rolling.
I was a bit spoiled for choice as there alot of filet patterns but instead I went for a hoodie (no jokes here please) which could look stunning as a stand-alone dress.

If you try it out then let me know how it goes.
