Take II - Crochet Skirt

Well actually this skirt is for my daughter and figured I would audition it for her.  This is another take on Hectanooga1's crochet skirt.  For this version I used Red Heart Super Saver in claret, single crocheted for 8", shell stitch for 3-1/2",  single crochet for 2", then repeat.  Fully lined, attaching it to a 1" non-roll elastic, and zig zagged stitched to skirt waist.

Paired the skirt with an Astrophe v-neck sweater, 9west ankle boots, Loft skinny belt & Legs Expression Tights....




 There's not much else to say about this skirt, except its a quick project and a great way to add diversity to any wardrobe.

I'm with Alethia - "Ms. Sexy" - looking good as usual. But, I still have to ask, where the heck is Savannah's skirt or dress?

L said...

You go, Sheila!

Sheila said...

Thank you Ladies.

Rosie, Savannah is a hot mess. Matter of fact we put her coat on and she had the nerve to continuously roll around in in the snow, came in the house sopping wet. Drove me bat shyt crazy.

Another great skirt! Are you sure your daughter is going to end up with it?! :)

Sheila said...

Thanks Carolyn, sadly I must send it to her. However, before I drop it in the mailbox, I need to shorten the lining, I noticed it was a tad too long. I have one more skirt on my hook and it will be for me.

I'm so impressed by those who crochet! I can't believe you made a (totally awesome) skirt! What a great snowy weekend outfit.

Sheila said...

Thank you Clio. It was the perfect project to finish over the snowy weekend... quick & mindless.

I am also a fan of Hectanooga1's projects. Since I don't knit or crochet I've enjoyed her craft projects.
