What I'm Wearing | Black & White ZigZag -- A Throwback!

10:00 PM

This skirt is a throwback from waaaaaaayyyyyyy back.  It's from 2005!  
It's one of my favorite crocheted projects.  In case you haven't been reading my blog from its initial conception, you may or may not know that I do crochet and knit.  I just haven't sat down to do either in a while. 

 All I remember about this project is that this skirt was really easy to make.  Back then, I was churning out about 2 crocheted projects a week.  And I love the fit and flare style! 
As you can see, I'm VERY particular about the care and maintenance of my clothes.  Especially the ones that I put painstaking time and effort into hand making.
Wearing:  silk tank from TJ Maxx; wedges: Jessica Simpson; black raffia & leather clutch: The Limited; fedora: Target; belt: Calvin Klein.

  7. Meant to say, do you use anything special to wash you rknitted items? Or just handwash with powder designed for colours, since they are kinder than regular powder.

  11. I don't usually wear black and white during summer because it can get so hot during the summer but I like this look! The bottom edge of the skirt is especially nice!

  12. Love that FIT! Absolutely cute outfit!

    Do you dry clean your crochet items? I'm dying to make a dress but I don't think I can throw it in the wash like my hats, scarves, legwarmers and gloves...:)

  20. I love the skirt! I'm more of a knitter than crochetter (I find crochetting confusing). I love seeing your crochet pieces becuase they inspire me to try to crochet more.

    1. Goodbye Valentino, it was pretty easy for me. I learned as a child by crocheting pot holders. And now they're lots of how-to videos. Thanks!

  25. I used to love to sew for myself when I was younger and trimmer! I'm getting ready to have gastric sleeve surgery and looking forward to having a smaller body and getting back into sewing. My proportions are so weird overweight that it's just not worth it to me to try to make adjustments. I'm so glad to see you pick up your hook again! I've been following you off and on for many years. Love your style - you are so talented! Wish I was in the ATL so I could take some classes with you!!
