Dark brown dress with crocheted yoke I thrifted this dress for about $1 many months ago and finally got around to altering it. Before The dress was too big and the crochet yoke wasn’t really even noticeable I removed the fabric that was behind the crochet section of the bodice. Since the crochet neckline was barely noticeable, I thought that removing the lining would make it show up better. From the other side I removed the pockets (For some reason in this material, they really added bulk at the hips) and took in both sides, adding shaping at the waistline. I made the fit comfortable but not baggy It looks nice paired with a cardigan, and soon enough I’ll be able to wear tights, too. Yes, the cardigan is buttoned crooked in this photo. Ha! . back It looks nice with a belt too I think I’d like to add some embroidery on the crochet neckline, but we’ll see if I find the time.
