    Wow, the blouse is just gorgeous, and so inspiring! Too bad I can’t crochet (I should learn it!)…

    this is great! making me wish I could crochet…the crochet part is so inventive and I just love the modern feel of that abstract circle patter….make your own fabric from crochet circles….who knew :)

    Hi Nettie! Thanks for your comment. I basically pinned a tube, put it on myself and marked the bust line with pins, from the armpits to the center. After I took it of I pinned a straight line for the back. I made a hem with tooth-stitch, pinned the jersey flat onto a styrofoam board, and started placing the little circles and connecting them in crochet chains. It wasn’t difficult, but very time-consuming.

    That is seriously amazing! I love everything about it. I’ve been trying to work up something similar with some lace yardage I have. Do you have any tips on cutting the sweetheart neckline?
