Boho Top – Crochet Pattern

20180629_104241

Let me introduce you to Boho Top, a very light and lacy garment created from a simple granny square patterning.

I wanted to express a casual style, yet elegant, in line with my personality. This top reminds me of glass with its transparencies, it speaks of summer and joy. It’s not a coincidence since I love painting glass as a way to express feelings.

As you can see it has a positive ease, this makes it perfect for a layered outfit, imagine wearing it on a black garment with long sleeves in spring or autumn.

Also, this vest is purely feminine without being loud, while modern fashion seems to express womanly traits by outlining shapes and colours this top whispers a calm consciousness – real women don’t need to shout to be seen.

Double Vest – Crochet Pattern

Double Vest is a very simple gilet with a modern twist. The use of color and moss stitch give to its simple lines a particular allure, making this garment at the same time casual and elegant, not to mention it’s also double face and unisex.

I designed Double Vest for her son, to embrace him in a soft hug; she used acrylic wool blend to make it easily washed and dried – with children you never know…. 😀 and she played with color to make it a joyful gilet for him.

He really enjoyed wearing Double Vest and posing for pictures, you can see he is more than happy with the garment mum made for him and it suits perfectly. Gifting handmade is a great way to remind ourselves that love is in the simplest of things.
