I have had the honor of purchasing a hand crocheted summer dress from
This was a Custom made item, which she created Special just for my daughter Jade.
The Dress took about 2 weeks to create, which was understandable as she was creating the pattern as she went and was customizing it for my daughters size.
There was Excellent communication throughout the entire process. If there was a question about sizing, she contacted me and I measured my daughter and the crocheting continued.
When I got the dress, I just couldn’t believe it! It was more amazing than I could have imagined. AND It fit my daughter perfectly. The Yarn is very soft, not scratchy at all. It is machine washable (which is a MUST in my family) but with special instructions. Cold water of course, and a very soft tumble, or line dry.
My daughter wore this dress to church the very next week, and everyone who saw her in her new dress had to stop and tell me how beautiful it was and how exquisite the craftsmanship appeared.
I have washed this dress, and It turned out great! It didn’t shrink and none of the stitches have come apart.
My only negative is that it is definitely a WARM dress. The style is definitely for Summer, but with the weight and effects of the yarn, my daughter stayed toasty warm while wearing it. In fact, my father in law, was holding my daughter while she was wearing the dress and mentioned that it was “like being wrapped in a very soft and comfortable afghan”. But the heat and weight issue is not something that can be changed as it IS a crocheted dress out of yarn. That’s just the nature of yarn.
