Lace Dress - Part 1

6:16 PM

Today, I am embarking on the adventure of crocheting the Lily Chin Lace Dress from Interweave Knits Crochet 2004. I have read over the instructions so far and there don't appear to be any type of difficult stitches, just the basics: sc, dc and sl st.

The problem is that I have been on a shrug roll for so long, crocheting projects that take about a day or so to complete, I'm afraid I will get bored with this and put it down. I have been wanting to do this dress since I first received this magazine this spring. I completed a lot of projects I had going and left only two on the backburner so that I could devote all of my "hook" time to this one.

I haven't crocheted with thread this small in so long, I feel like I'm making a doilie! The biggest problem I've had so far was working the foundation row, I almost needed a magnifying glass just to see the stitches. Once I got passed that it appears to be smooth sailing, but I am just on the bodice.

    That is so very pretty! I think that is the dress Lily was wearing several years' ago at a CGOA convention. Very nice! Can't wait to see it finished!

  8. I saw where you had this posted on the (CPlist) and provided the link, thank you. I downloaded the pattern, maybe, just maybe! when I get a bit better and have a few wearables under my belt I will embark on something as ambitious! I can't wait to see your progress and how it turns out!
    best of luck
