When I was out in New Mexico for vacation I was in a little boutique. They had these cute clothes with patches, lace, and doilies and I thought to myself, “I can make something like that.” Then a month or so ago, a lady in one of my crochet groups on Facebook posted pictures of her granddaughter’s jeans that she patched with doilies. I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of torn jeans ever since, because I wanted to make something like that as well.
I’ve been noticing lately that a lot of people have been posting pictures of their own re-imagining of designer clothes. So I wondered how much crochet is out there right now in the designer world. I don’t follow fashion myself and I don’t buy designer clothes, but I did find some interesting designer crochet out there. I found a site called farfetch.com, they have all kinds of stuff from various designers. I just did a search for crochet and there were 244 results. Crochet is hot!
There’s the Round Neck Crochet Jumper by Chloé. This top goes for $950. It’s 14% wool and 86% cotton. It’s pretty and elegant. From a distance it doesn’t look like crochet, but when you zoom in on the stitches, it does.
It’s Spring, at least according to the calendar, so it’s time to make some Spring clothes. I’ve been searching through my pins, trying to pick out some cute items for the spring. Disclaimer: I am not fashion savvy. These are just patterns that appeal to me and my sense of style. lol
