Pattern: Interweave Crochet‘s Lace Skirt with Drawstring Waist
Yarn: 5 x Knit Picks‘s Shine Sport in Violet
Comments: The pattern is pretty easy to read but I wish a chart had been included. It was a little difficult to picture the stitch pattern when I first started crocheting the skirt.
My waist is nowhere near 29¼” however I like to wear my bottoms low so I decided to crochet a bigger size, plus I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to pull it past my hips. Well, the yarn stretched a little after a wash so I’ve no problem pulling it past my hips but it’s kind of loose on the waist now. Thank goodness for the drawstring.
Since it’s a lace skirt, I’ll have to find a lining for it. I don’t fancy flashing my knickers to the rest of the world when I wear it. I can’t sew to save my life so either I buy some kind of half-slip or I pay someone to sew a lining to the skirt for me.
I wish I’ve taken notes during the process as I can imagine they’ll be useful to any crocheter interested in crocheting the skirt. Eh, I’ll try to remember next time.
I haven’t mastered the art of taking full length pictures of myself so eh, no full action shots.
