I got inspired and cranked out another outfit. This one started with the idea of the portrait neckline and grew from there. I used a black and gold lurex crochet thread for the dress and a strange kind of double thread with small blocks of color between for the trim and accessories. The dress has the large off the shoulder portrait collar and is fitted around the waist and legs. I used the shades of pink and black thread stuff as an accent across the bust and waist and as a crochet ruffle around the bottom. I also used it to make a bracelet and headband that stretch a bit to go on. It closes in the back with two snaps and a hook and eye at the waist.
