Today is The Day!

Today is the day I starting to work on new project/order…I’m excited and scared at the same time. Why?! Because I start working today on the crochet Matric dress for young lady from Cape Town and its something that I never made before…like many things in life for a first time – scary, right? But I’m ready to rock and can’t wait to see end result.

Here is the dress that girl have in mind for her Matric dress…

Original dress  designed by Rebbecca Taylor…beautiful photo from catwalk

After a day or two of surfing Russian/Ukrainian web… why?…well because there is lots of info on crochet/knit subjects, also its my mother tongue;P and in my opinion most talented ladies come from that part of the world…hehe.  And  Ta Da …I got this patten from Kulya from Kiev, she worked very hard to figure out this pattern from photos and I’m very grateful to Kulya for sharing it xxx Spasibo bolshoe!!!

 There is so many beautiful versions of this dress…short, layered, with long sleeves and in many different colours…. have a look at some of them

I like this top idea!

Mmmmm…my favorite

And what I love the most that when I was searching for more info on this dress I came across of so many pictures of this dress made by brides to be. How special to make your own wedding dress and pass in to next generation…romantic… Wow!!! 

  Today is really cold outside…great for Pj all day and lots of tea day:) I been working on the dress since early morning and here is result so far…

 and I have long way to go, but I’ll keep you posted.

Enjoy your weekend.
