Since picking up crochet again, one of the most exciting things has been the activity of “making actual clothes without sewing.” This rainbow skirt for my 5-year-old little girl is proof of that! I started this skirt a couple of days ago, loosely following a pattern. After a while I abandoned the pattern and drew on all the ideas I have received from other crochet fashionistas and made it my own. Yes, I said “crochet fashionistas” and if you don’t believe that crochet is high fashion in 2013, take a quick stroll down any busy street of women clothing stores. Trust me, even Anne Sez, says so. I can’t wait for her to wear it. I would put it on her right now at 11:56 PM, but she’s been sleeping for 3 hours and its a heck to get her back to sleep. So for now, I can only enjoy the satisfaction of looking at my piece of finished art. Find the artist in you.
