Quezon City, Phi...
A while back, I bought a lacy crocheted tank from the thrift store. It fitted me but was a bit tight, the neckline was too high, and it had very little shaping. The thread is very light, the crocheting is quite fine and I’d love to make use of it. I immediately thought of ripping the thread for a future project. I ripped the side and shoulder seams with a seam ripper. I tried to frog the crochet stitches, but I found out that it was tight and in most parts the stitches won’t come off. So I decided to refashion the crochet fabric instead.
Didn’t realize it would be so easy to sew the bottom ends and just cut off the excess at the other end, then sew the sleeve part together.
I love this shrug!
