Easy Empire Waist Summer Dress

Here is an incredibly simple-to-make and cute empire-waist dress that looks great and can be made in many variations. I personally like best the strapless version below for both hot summer weather and time-it-takes to make considerations.

Quick Strapless Beach Dress Update

Here is some real quick update on the cute strapless beach dress that I started as well. Haven't worked much on it lately, neither on the flouncy Brazilian dress... but about to resume both as summer vacation time is approaching... fast! :)

This is how and what the stitch pattern of the top part will be. I am crocheting top-down, so after I reach right below my breast line to form an empire waist, I will continue in a different pattern and start tapering the dress shape by regular increases (just by using different hook sizes!) It will be tying at the back with a string as the original... just hope that the yarn that I have would be enough (300 gr), or I will have to start looking for the same or almost the same color cotton yarn. 

Yummm... Yummyummmm...Yummmmm :)

It has been a while I haven't been around and had any time for crocheting (let alone blogging), but I thought I should share my excitement today with some culinary experiments (heheh...) of mine. Been so fascinated with Middle Eastern food lately and tried to make for a first time two recipes myself... the result is so yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmyyy!!!!! :) that I thought I should share something good with others. I am not sure even if I can spell or pronounce the dishes correctly... tabouleh salad (this one is pretty easy) and Mjaddara (however it is pronounced). Both are so healthy - I have never ever cooked before with bulgur and am so fascinated with my new discovery.

I looked up the recipes from the how-to-make videos of a charming, talanted and increasingly popular youtuber lady - Maha... I am posting the links below... so, now... next thing on my list is to try make my own home-made hummus and pita bread... yummmm yummm yummmm.... :)
