Crochet Umbrella - Granny Mosaic SUNbrella And Upcycled Crochet Doily Dress

Granny Mosaic SUNbrella - reloaded in mini-me version:


I changed the shape from octagon to hexagon, flat desing to "dangerously" curved. I kept from the original version the granny squares, granny pentagons and granny right triangles (or half granny squares) and all the colors of the rainbow distributed in swirl from burgundy to pink accross red, orange, sun yellow, yellow, neon green, grass green, teal, turquoise, blue, royal blue and purple. All bordered with black for the "stained glass-like" effect. Instead of the granny octagon this time the middle of the design is a granny hexagon. This one is made of sewing thread for being lighter... It's still not lace weight, but goes close. @;)


Upcycled Crochet Doily Dress:


Original "made in Italy" black cotton dress with colorful lace weight crochet doilies in different shapes and motifs (triangle, square, hexagon and octagon), all handmade by me in burgundy, red, orange, neon green, green, teal, turquoise, blue, royal blue and violet.

The violet heart on the bodice is attached with double rainbow buttons, and I sewn by hand the skirt to the dress with invisible stitches.
