When I was growing up in Russia, we were poor, not poor-poor, but we didn’t have a lot of money either. When I was in 7th grade I wore the same outfit to school EVERY DAY, until one of my good friends (she was a year older too) called me out on that. This is when my mom became my salvation. She sewed and crocheted for me. I soon had more than one outfit to wear to school.
I learned how to knit and crochet too, but I was never confident enough to make my own clothes. Until now!
I found this dress about a month ago
And it came with a scheme, so I decided to create my own, but make it black! (I have been into black, white, and gray lately)
Here is what my “dress” looks like so far:
Will keep you updated!
Love and Lace flowers,
PS. The top of the dress is knitted, but the skirt is crocheted.
