Fast and elegant cream color racer back tank dress. Simple and easy "weekend" (almost) project with maximum elegance impact.

... and another similar shorter version in the same stitch pattern from MANGO


Summer Breeze Crochet Dress

Cute pineapple motifs based breezy summer dress.

... and here is something sort of similar that I came across from the catwalks :)

Strapless Crochet Dress

Sweet summer strapless beach dress that would be quite cute with a lining as a regular dress as well. Some of the stitch motif diagrams might be helpful in putting this piece together.

Cute Crochet Dress

Karen Millen Crochet Dress

Here is this beautiful, beautiful... sweet and feminine Karen Millen crochet dress that is so hard to resist... sigh, wish a day had 48 hrs... and maybe I could catch up with everything.

You can buy the originals here.

Cute Crochet Minis

Several cute crochet minis/tunics all based around the crochet stitch motifs enclosed. Excellent summery projects that seems to be easy and fast to make, especially if thicker yarn and crochet hook is used.

Diane von Furstenberg Golden Crochet Dress

Still trying to figure out the main stitch pattern to this pretty dress. Seems a bit perplexing, but with a bit of tweaking, trial and error testing I believe I will get it right in the end. More is yet to follow...

Little White Slip Crochet Dress

A pretty summery slip style crochet dress in layers. It appears to be made in the same technique as the Brazilian dress - all ruffle layers get attached onto a net tapered shaped base including the one on the very top. Just about any cute small doily pattern should do with semi-circles for the flounces added to each layer.  

Vanessa Bruno Athé Crochet Dress Spring Summer 2011

A pretty mesh crochet dress from the Spring - Summer 2011 collection of the French designer Vanessa Bruno Athé. Looks fairly easy to make and good project for a crochet knitter novice.

Jennifer Aniston Marissa Crochet Dress

This is another pretty crochet dress from the terrific collections of designer Anna Kosturova that I am lining up on my wishlist (it appears to be quite easy to make)... sigh, I wish I had at least some 5-6 pairs of hands as an Indian deity so maybe I can catch up with making all the things that I want to make. 

You could get the original here.

Emilio Pucci Spring Summer 11

... well, here is a little digression from my crochet-mania... isn't that a stunner?! I think I would love to make one, but tweak it again lengthwise... and in black it would be beautiful!

One could buy the original here.

Terrific Crochet Tunic/Dress

What a lovely tunic!!! Would love to make one, but will definitely turn it into a dress (my favorite piece of clothing) by adding a bit more to the length. How terrific! :)

Eva Longoria's Crochet Dress

Another pretty "classic" feminine dress that nobody should pass up... I think even beginners like me can handle it... I find myself falling deeper and deeper in love with the art and craft of crocheting... :)

Kate Hudson's Sexy Beach Crochet Hotpants

Yeayyyyyyyy!!!!! Aren't these hotpants gorgeous?!! I am frantically digging through all my crochet mags and stashed stitch patterns for something similar that I can put together and improvise in making my own skirty beach hotpants... hm... granma's pineapple tablecloth watch out...

... alright, here I found a good close-up of the hotpants and a crochet scheme of the pineapple motif that comes very close and could be used and/or readapted.

... ok, maybe this scheme could be adjusted and used as a basic pattern for the left and right pant legs so then we would have a center seam in the front and back... with some swatching, adjusting and sizing anyone could make their perfect fit crochet beach hotpants... good luck and enjoy! :)


WOW!!!! Here is what I found!!!! You can get Kate's crochet pants on eBay!!!! Just type "crochet shorts" as a search term and you will come right across it!!!! :)
