Big pumpkin

Did I said in my previous post: I hope I will not become a pumpkin? Well, I am a pumpkin, big orange pumpkin.
I moved to Zagreb a month ago, and haven't organized my sewing place yet. So, I'm crocheting these days.

The pattern is from Japanese book.
The yarn is from my stash: Marina by Dalmatinka (Sport / 5 ply) 100% Cotton.
Hook size: 3mm
Video tutorial for popcorn stitch here.
 I also made one more organza fabric rose brooch.

No waist dress

Well, I know the fall is already here, but I have to show you one more dress I have sewn month ago. This is one more easy, simple and cheap project. Since I got few kilos in past four months I am not wearing anything with accentuated waist. It seems that this season the waist is must have, so in that case I have to go on a diet.Well, I have never had hourglass body, but now I become an apple. I hope I will not become a pumpkin.:) So, until I loss few kilos, no waist dresses are my choice.

This pattern I have already used for this dress .
It is self drafted pattern, but at Burda Style 6/2011 you have similar.

Used fabric: chiffon lined with cheesecloth.
