first, there was a yoke…

During my heavy crochet phase, I made this yoke with a star motif on the back, intending to use it for a dress or top. I hadn’t decided yet. I also needed some matching fabric for it, which I didn’t have. So I set it aside and almost forgot about it entirely–that is, until Dane decided to do a big spring cleaning of the bedroom yesterday and I found this old polka dot skirt I bought years ago that I don’t really wear anymore. And then I had a lightbulb moment…

I so love the idea of recycling/reinventing old clothing, so I’m particularly proud if this creation.

  2. hey oonaballoona! thanks for visiting and for the comment! oh, if only we had no jobs, no responsibilities and needed no sleep so we could create 24/7… 🙂

  3. Gorgeous! What a neat combination with that fabric, I love it! You just reminded me I have some unfinished crochet projects of my own that I could finish this way.
