Classic Summer Set

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Classic Summer Set Link to website or photo www.crochetbykathy.com/Apparel1.html What are you most proud of? I started out making a coverup, then decided there would be more options in sizing if the top and skirt were separate. As I was making the skirt, I thought of making a slit in the back. I liked the way that turned out and decided to add the same detail on the sides of the top. I got carried away and added a matching hat, too. I'm very happy with the way my "coverup" turned out! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you love thread crochet, this is a great project for the intermediate crocheter. Assembly charts are provided for all sizes. The finished chest sizes for the top are: 31-1/2", 36", 40-1/2", 45", and 49-1/2". The finished waist/hip sizes for the skirt are: 22-1/4"/36", 25"/40-1/2", 27-3/4"/45", 30-1/2"/49-1/2", and 33-1/4"/54". Instructions are also included to create intermediate waist sizes for the skirt. The hat size is 22-1/2" circumference. The pattern is available for $6.50 and is written in U.S. terms. The pattern link above is for the 3-piece set. The hat is also available separately as the "Classic Summer Hat".
