Kristin's first design love when she was a little girl was dresses. She used to draw evening gowns for hours and hours and hours. Remember Fashion Plates? That was the first toy introducing fashion and design into Kristin's world. Shortly thereafter, she began sketching and designing on plain paper.
When she had her first sewing machine, around 17 yrs old, she used to make evening, cocktail and wedding gowns for her friends. She has designed a few dresses in crochet and knitting for magazines over the years, but now she is debuting two crochet lace maxi dresses for the KRISTIN collection of instant download patterns.
The yarn used is Miss Bab's Kilimanjaro. Its a BFL wool that is exquisitely handdyed in whopping 1700+ skeins of yarn. Each of these maxi dresses is a ONE SKEIN project!! How awesome is that? You know they were blocked and washed in Wrapture. But once again, Wrapture never ceases to amaze me. It softened up the BFL like I have never seen. These dresses are so soft and feel wonderful on. I can't wait to wear them FOR REAL!
The slideshow video below shows each of the dresses in a variety of angles for you to see all the beautiful stitchwork and details. The patterns will be available on or before Friday, March 14, 2014. You can preorder either dress pattern HERE: Green or Red Crochet Lace Maxi Dress Pattern PRE-ORDER
