Mirela Red Christmas Top

Added Dec 27, 2008

Hollywood, Flori...






For the upper part of the top I used this metallic sparkling yarns and half double crochet stitches for tighter work, so it did not require underlining.
The fabric is cut based on a Burda pattern from WOF 09/2007.
I ironed the pleats first using steam and water on the folds. Stitched the right side seam, inserted the zipper on the left, hemmed the lower and upper parts, and attached the cups (sewn by machine).
For the hem I used this tutorial from BurdaStyle: http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/520

Material Notes

Yarn: Patons Brilliant: radiant red, almost 2 shins.
Hook: 3.5mm
Fabric: taffeta

    Hallo Mirela!

    I am really excited because we have same models done,with small different. I have done it as dress and it is not one color (it has flower on it ) and it’s combination of crochet and textile. I do not have picture of it now but I hope I will take picture of it and upload it. We obviously have same pattern for crocheted bra. If you have any other shape,please can you tell us. Very nice and creative!

    Beautiful job, Mirela. I love the crocheted bra cups and the pleats are also a really interesting feature.
