Oh, oh, oh! I just love it when I finish a project and I like it even better than my imagination thought I would:). This granny skirt is definitely one of those!I finished crocheting last night, sewed the top on this afternoon, and immediately stepped into it for a photo shoot. I can’t wait for Sunday:)! In fact, I am going to a funeral tomorrow and will have to wear it, no waiting here!
I did get a slight variation of yarn color when I re-ordered more thread ,as you can see in the photo, but happy mistakes made this pretty ombré effect.
I like how the grannies give a slight peek a boo, but still keep things modest.
I made this skirt from an inspiration photo that you can find here. I did not follow the instructions at all. I just started sewing grannies, connected them to the lengths I wanted and sewed them together. The main skirt I crocheted in a continuous round only crocheting in the back loops to get a textured look. I decreased stitches at the top to have it taper in at the waist. I sewed some stretch black fabric to the top and added some elastic. That’s it!
