In black and white

I’m over the moon. My first dress on the cover of Simply Crochet magazine, I would never have imagined! Despite the many days (and one night) to make all the pieces, sewing carefully and finish all the details in time, almost do not believe I did it myself.

I’m the one that crochet mostly toys, who has no patience to make the second sock or second glove, which fails to complete the sleeves of my knitted sweater on hold for six months. Sometimes we must have faith in ourselves and try until we get the goal.
Sixties style with geometric patterns in black and white is the mood of issue 43 of the magazine. It includes socks, gloves, accessories, handbags and my dress; it’s a A line tunic, without sleeves, round neckline… in short, a dress for all occasions were it not for the geometrical panel that I loved from the first moment I put the pencil on the paper (thinking about Mary Quant, Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy)
I confess that the love slightly disappeared when I had to sew all the pieces, but in the end the satisfaction was skyrocketing. I hope it will be the same for those who will make it!
