crochet dress

This is one of my favorite designs ..The design came to life with some inspiration from my niece whom I made this for . She will be wearing it on Christmas Day . each day brought another idea to me .

I must have taken it apart 3 times till I decided the design was just right for her ! The fit was perfect :) ...from this , My sister now wants me to create a matching outfit for herself to wear with her grand daughter ! Her`s will be a short top w/ puffy sleeves and a matching skirt which will be fitted .

Crochet Dress

This crochet dress was an inspiration that i got from a top I had bought myself earlier in the year . The flowers around the neckline just make this dress . I added beads around the bottom so you get some glitz as your body moves . The beads added in the center of each flower was the most time consuming , I had to place each and every bead 1 by 1 just in the right spot .

You can order this dress from creatingwithni.etsy.com Just send a message and request Unique white flower collar dress and specify your size . This particular dress will take about 1 to 2 weeks for completion .

Note that each of my creations are known for being very unique , no 2 will ever be exactly alike . weather the difference be in the positioning of the beads , the pattern used to place the flowers around the neck line , the shape of the neckline , the thickness of the neckline , or the bead placements on the bottom hemline . Each creation will have its own uniqueness to suit you .

This style goes for 119.99 to 139.99 depending on the bead placements that you would choose.
You will be proud wearing an original made just for you .

Pillowcase Dress

I bought vintage pillowcases from one of the shops on etsy.com with this in mind . I didn`t just want the same old pillowcase dresses I have seen with ribbons , I wanted them to be very special so I decided on crocheting the straps with cotton thread giving it just the touch it needed to make them very unique. My passion is coming up with unique ideas so no to items will be the same therefore my other matching pillowcase from the set will be getting a slightly different straps !

What is great about pillowcase dresses is that they will grow with the child ... @ 2 yrs old they can be worn as a long gown and by the time they are 4 the dress will reach below the knees @ about 7 or 8 yrs. old they will be above the knee and can later be used as a top over a cute shorts or pants ! You can really have fun with this , wearing a shirt under neath will give it a whole new look !

This pillowcase dress measures 26 inches in length from top of shoulders to the hem line.
The chest measures 26 inches without stretching and will stretch up to over 35 inches ! lots of room to grow :)

This can be found for sale @ creatingwithni.etsy.com
