Making Stuff: Patchwork Dress with Crochet Yoke {fat quarter project}

by This is Carrie on July 31, 2013

While wandering through Tuesday Morning one day, I happened upon a pack of gorgeous Anna Maria Horner Cotton Voile fat quarters and a skein of luxurious angora yarn in the perfect shade of purple to match.  Right there in that store aisle, I pictured this dress in my mind.Pattern: Pretty Pink Collar designed by Loretta Schepp from the Crochet 2013 Day-to-Day Calendar (the 2013 calendar is pretty expensive now, but you can order the 2014 calendar now on Amazon which I am sure if filled with fun projects too).  Similar crocheted yoke/collar patterns can be found on etsy like this one HERE.

Yarn: A discontinued angora yarn found at Tuesday Morning (ours always has a little craft section).  Lion Brand Yarn carries a very similar angora merino yarn HERE.

Fabric: Anna Maria Horner IC Voile Collection. I used 3 of the 10 fat quarter pieces in the bundle. Looks like she still has this pack available on her website for 1/2 off the original price.  It’s GORGEOUS fabric.  The mom of this cute baby of couldn’t believe it was 100% cotton and not 100% silk.

p.s. Isn’t she (still) so beautiful? She’s grown up a lot since she modeled the Crochet Baby Turban for me.
