This is what I did all summer... No, it didn't take that long to make. And you can crochet while having a chat, listening to music, watching a movie (anything you don't need your hands for, really). I found the pattern in a magazine, but ended up altering it slightly, deciding not to add frilly details on the hem and the straps. I think this way it is less fussy. It looks very unshapely in the photo, although it does have a waist, but the way it falls is rather 1920s, I suppose.
The yarn is an organic cotton/soy mix and feels very nice.
I have a penchant for crochet. And I am so used to people asking me whether I am wearing a curtain (at school I was bullied for how I dressed) that I have become immune to it...
Have a lovely weekend,
