Crochet Summer Skirt

After a very, very, VERY long winter spring is finally there, here in the Netherlands! Still a bit reluctantly, but it's not freezing cold anymore. Sooo, I thought: "Now is the time to make more summer clothes for my girls again!" (I already made the Zebra Skirt, but when the matching weather failed to appear I kind of got stuck). 

I'm really into crochet these last weeks and this crochet mood is still going strong, so what I made is a crochet skirt for my oldest and a singlet for my youngest. I will show you the singlet next time, but here is the skirt:


Crochet Summer Skirt, White


I didn't use a pattern, I just put together different motives and joined them together to form a skirt. The skirt is lined with white jersey.

  1. Wow, that's awesome. I did some thread crochet many years ago, it's a lot of work! I only made some small things. Great job on the skirt.

  3. So cool! I'm in awe of anyone who can crochet, especially those who can do it without a pattern!

  7. Oh so so adorable! I love it! Maybe someday I'll attempt something amazing like this (without a pattern, lol). What kind of thread/yarn did you use for the skirt?

  10. Wonderful! I'm crocheting a hat at the moment, but I'm tempted to put it aside to make a skirt for my daughter.

  11. Good Morning Liz, Well, I had to come and visit you when I saw the title of your blog "Howling at the Moon" and I am so pleased I did. The little skirt you have crocheted for your daughter is beautiful. When my daughters were small, I sewed and knitted a lot of their clothes. I have not done any crocheting for quite a few years, but do you know, I think I am going to start again.
    I have enjoyed my visit Liz and I have become a new follower.
    I would like to invite you to visit me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! when you have the time.
    Best Wishes from England,
    Daphne

  13. I'm before you at Met Monday. The shirt is just great. I'm over here in Italy. And lace like Crochet is all the rage. I've seen it in pants and even short shorts. You did a beautiful job.
