Sneak Peek & Contest Time!!
|April 8, 2013||Filled under Creations, Giveaway|
While Kristin and I are waiting for matches shoes and accessories we ordered recently to model this dress tunic, I decided to take some sneak peek and offer you a little contest ;o)
This dress tunic made with my newest favorite Omega’s #5 Cotton yarn in such unusual for me red color – if you know, I’m not a big fun of red, but I really like red for this style. The dress/tunic crocheted in one piece (read: NO sewing work at all … well, except buttons ;o) and features Hi-Lo skirt, made in different patterns and crocheted in one piece too. I really would love to write this pattern as soon as possible, but it will be a bit a challenge even if this one is pretty easy to crochet (if get all math correctly, and before you start to work on this design :) So, I can’t give even approx. dates when this pattern may be released, but I’ll keep you updated for sure.
And now let’s go for a CONTEST…
I am looking for the NAME and catching and clear description for this tunic or dress (you name it!). In English only please ;o)

*** UPDATE #2 I’ve got several questions – where is front of this dress tunic and what are measurements for this one. Well, front is buttoned and shorter one (first & second pictures ;o) And measurements for sample shown above made in girl’s size 10: chest (loose fit) – 27” (69 cm); bodice (front length): 5.5” (14 cm); bodice (back longest length): 9.5” (24 cm); adjustable straps (approx. – they are still need to adjust): 4.5”(11.5 cm); skirt (front length): 8.5” (22 cm); skirt (back length): 9.5” (24 cm). I’ll do my best to catch Kristin in between her all scheduled play dates/sleep overs with BFF (she has and enjoys Spring break now) and take some pictures to show you how this tunic looks in person …even with current available shoes and her favorite jeans ;o)
