Have you ever found yourself surreptitiously eyeing up someone's clothes thinking 'I wanna make that'?!
I have. I have even taken notes for future reference and designing.
And I've taken photos... ohuh! *laughs guiltily*
I LOVE this waistcoat! I saw this girl in a cafe the last time I was in London. I was there filling an hour while waiting for a connection at Victoria coach station. I had just eaten a very nice piece of lasagne while mentally trying to memorise her vest. Then I realised that I had my camera in my handbag...
Now, how on earth do I go about recreating this pretty thing? I'm thinking about starting with a paper pattern of the actual waistcoat dimensions and then crocheting stars to fill the space on the paper before joining them all the way round the edges. Is that the way to go? What do you think? Advice would be MUCH appreciated!
PS. I love to buy handmade. Do you? If yes, I recommend you go and explore the Etsy Stock Take. It's full of lovely things that some of my blog readers make and sell online. If you are a seller check it out too, you can link up your new beautiful creations :)
