Patchwork Dresses

Only someone who knits or crochets will appreciate how long it takes to make a garment. So when I find discarded knitting projects I can’t bare to see them go to waste.

This piece started as a beginners knitting project accidentally boiled in the washing machine. By simply cutting out a hole for the neck, adding some jersey and sewing up the side seams it turned into an oversize dress/top. The added crochet patches finishes it nicely.

Next up is a neatly crocheted baby blanket in yummy colours turned into this stylish little number. Instead of sewing, this one was crocheted together at then side seam, hem and neckline for a neater finish.

Last but not least is this pastel number salvaged from a crochet patchwork blanket. I actually managed to get two dresses out of this one. Worn here with our pompom wooly robe.

If you have a similar project tucked away somewhere, why not turned into something wearable? Or maybe just a cushion cover if you inner hippy is a little shy.
