Browsing beautiful crochet on Etsy – as I do every week – I came across a couple of the lovely dresses that are featured in this week’s “Treasury Tuesday”. They’re marked as “vintage” and ” boho”, and I love their looks. Funnily they don’ t look oldfashioned to me at all. And although I know I’ve stated before that I didn’t see myself creating wearable crochet (other than shawls, scarfs&ponchos), let alone wear my own crochet, looking at these gorgeous projects, I’m having serious second thoughts ……
An ig-friend commented on my “Boho Blanket”, that it would make a fab cardigan or coat, and you know what? I think she has a point…….
Seeing more and more crochet in today’s fashion has definitely had its influence on me, I think, whether it’s been subconsciously or not.
Of course I hope you’ll be as inspired as I am by the sixteen hip&happening garments in the latest “Treasury Tuesday”-collage!
Have a great week,
It’s fun to see how “vintage” has quickly become very popular recently.
Especially if you’re a child from the sixties/seventies – like I am – because you see people going wild over things that you just grew up with and at that time never valued as very special of course!
Searching for “vintage crochet patterns” was definitely fun too! It struck me that crochet must have been mainly used as a technique to make clothes some 40/50 years ago.
I did find some patterns for blankets as well, but clothing was clearly the thing to crochet and I have to admit that some patterns made me smile broadly – the shorts really cracked me up :).
Nonetheless, there’s a fair amount of patterns that even in this day and age would be great to work from – the conclusion that crochet is pretty timeless seems justified, and I really like that aspect of it too!
Also, I’ve seen a lot of crochet tops in high fashion stores as of lately and I can see this dress being on display as well …..it’s one of my two favorites this week, as is the granny square blanket – you truly can’t beat a good old granny.
I hope you’ll enjoy this week’s Treasury Tuesday and I’m wishing you a great week ahead, filled with lots of crochet,
