Your mind is racing back to..
Your Grandmom making patterns of doilies & table clothes and designs out of crochet hook and thread?
Well, those grandma patterns have made a comeback big time. The 2017 spring runway fashion was so much about crochet. Check out Moschino 2017 Resort show, Balmain 2017 resort collection in bold colors. Spring 2017 collection from Desigual, has a Bohemian inspiration.
I am not surprised as the trends & fashion get to a full circle. Sometimes they come back in few years and sometimes they skip generations.
I have been in love with fabrics, patterns, knits & needle crafts. Sometimes have this urge of creating them myself. hence the tremendous respect for the creators who put in their soul and weave magic with detailing.
As for now, have a look at how I created a look of monochrome. This little Crochet top.
