Sometimes the term, "high fashion", can be somewhat of a turnoff...often it is perceived as bulky, ugly, fashionably elite;as well as conceptually and financially outrageous! At one time or another, we have all flipped the pages of a magazine, and thought to ourselves...what's the big deal? Although, in my case, I must admit that I am impressed more often than I am not. A few years ago, I got the idea to google, "high fashion crochet". I would like to share with you some of the sites and photos that google referred me to. I hope you are as inspired by them as I was...enjoy!
This dress is $110.00 by Stewart Brown- handmade crocheted dress. In my opinion, the price is reasonable for the work. However, if you just can't find the space in your budget for a $110.00 dress, buy the yarn, and find a similar pattern or create your own!
Tips and Hints: The skirt portion of this dress was made using a netted or mesh pattern. Here is a link to a guide/tutorial for the following stitches: http://needlecraftsuperior.com/?tag=crochet-mesh-stitches
Remember the old table cloth your Gran made a million times over?
Well, here's what you could do with Gran's crocheted creations.
This ruffled skirt was once a crocheted table cloth! Who knew that I could rummage through my Gran's linen closet, and find some old table cloth she made ages ago to rework into a stylish skirt or fun dress!

This long, black, oversized crocheted scarf is just the right accessory to further accentuate this sleek dress. I would have styled the model's hair in a simpler fashion, as the dress and scarf are dramatic enough.
