Bernina Crocodile Stitch Gown

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am proud that I was able to show this gown at the Crochet Guild of America Annual Conference and the feedback I received from the celebrity crochet designers and the audience was overwhelming and fantastic. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would say... give yourself enough time to complete a large project like this. I underestimated the amount of time this would require and I had to complete this project in 3 weeks. There were times I thought I was not going to make in time for the fashion show, but luckily I did.

What you will need

  • I used a crochet thread weight in a satin microfiber.

usacroche173117 asked:
ok i saved this to my patterns now how do i get the pattern to make this?
bonitapatterns answered:
This dress does not have a pattern available. I made it for as a special project for a fashion show. If I find there is a great demand for it, I may consider publishing the pattern.

Lavonne asked:
Such a beautiful - marvelous job! You are an expert!
bonitapatterns answered:
Lavonne, you are kind. I'm dedicated designer, but I don't know about "expert". Everytime I learn a new technique in crochet or knitting it seems there is something else to learn.
