A Designer I Am NOT

Let’s all just forget about the little comment I made the other day about designing my own dress pattern, shall we?  I SUCK AT IT!  It’s too much.  I get confused.  I doubt myself.  I feel pressure.  I get confused again.  BLEH!  Just forget I ever said anything, okay?

DSCF6204 Here is a picture of the beginning of the dress I was attempting to design.  I’ve crocheted and ripped out the skirt part countless times trying to use just the right stitch and put just the right amount of flare in the skirt.  I wasn’t going to even show you this picture because I was thinking someone might “steal” my idea.  HA!  I don’t care!  Steal it!  Go ahead!  I’m finished with it!  You can have the designing and all the headaches that go with it.

I’m going to go crochet on my blanket now, relax, and forget all this bullshit designing stuff.

WHEW!

I feel better all ready!

  1. I like what you did with the dress; it looks lovely.

    I see two aminekos. I finished my second a little over a week ago, and am now moving onto the big amineko.

  4. I always think I can design a doily or two..then when I try my thoughts go out the window..so much easier and relaxing to use someone else's pattern. thanks goodness for those who do design.

  5. Pammy Sue! Its freaking adorable!
    But I am with you...I have done designing before for Crochet World magazine and some others. It is a headache, its time consuming and takes the joy out of crocheting for me. I enjoy the process of finding a pattern, picking yarn and then the excitement of completing a project.

  7. Flare of the skirt . . that's why I normally put a ribbon around the bottom of the bodice . . Momma's tightening it will give it a flare,or maybe not. LOLOL

  11. You are definitely a designer - this little dress is coming out really cute. It's so frustrating when there's alot of frogging going on, but when you get it figured out it will be worth it. Don't give up - there's so many little girls out there that will look so adorable in your little dress. I know your granddaughter will. :)

  16. Dearest Pam, I feel your frustration on this one. It's cute and girly. One solution is you could add 2 strands of 1/4" wide elastic in white or pink to put around the top of the skirt and just weave it in and out evenly between the stitches and then when it is the right size around, just knot it or better yet, sew it flat and wha-la it's a skirt with a little flare! Looks like at the top it is single crochet so using 2 strands of elastic, one strand on the top row and the other strand on the row below it or you could add a dbl crochet and ch 1 at the top and weave a 3/4" elastic thru it.

    Hey, I just realized that the mandala on the right in your pic above is the one that you gave me in your giveaway. I still have it next to my 'puter at work on top of the scanner/printer and LOVE it. ox my friend and don't stress about the skirt. k?

  20. LOL. what you have done is very pretty. Could you add a little waist and it be a skirt? It's really adorable.

    I know...I am not good at pattern writing either. Some of us have it and some of us don't. I don't.

  21. I love all that yummy food there. I love your dress you could always make a bolero style jacket instead which be cute with the skirt part. I wish there was something close to seniors here it would be fun to enjoy other people and share needlework too. I am so glad to see that your better I pray hope each day I see wonderful things on your page. That makes me feel better for you my friend. Take care will be in touch.
