The most viewed post on my blog is the Crocheted Yoke Dress. Well, I was thinking when an item is that well liked by the public why not make another? After all it has been 3 years since you made the first two. Yes, I also made one for my daughter, Jocasta's Crocheted Yoke Dress. Anyway, here is the third version,The 2014 Crocheted Yoke Dress:
Yoke Pattern - Nell from Berroco Yarns.
Skirt Pattern - Simplicity 3867
Yarn – Simply Soft Light, Caron Yarns: 100% Acrylic, Light Weight Yarn 3, 330 yds/301 m, Color: White, 1 Skein (Joann's)
Fabric – 2 yards Floral Polyester Silky (Joann's)
Notions – 14” zipper. Hook and eye
Hooks – Size E/4 (3.50 mm)
Finished Size – Yoke: Bust (32”)
This is my third time posting this dress! But here are some new notes for this version:
This time I did not line the yoke. At my age,I find nylon lining, under acrylic crocheted fabric, to warm to wear in the heat of the summer. I find it cooler to wear with a skin-tone strapless bra under the yoke.
I used the skirt pattern pieces from the Classic Sewstylish Dress, Simplicity 3867, to make the skirt for this dress. Using the skirt pattern aided in achieving a more attractive fit then just simply cutting two pieces of fabric and gathering at waist and attaching it to the yoke!
I placed a zipper at the side seam of this dress since the yoke was crocheted with side seams. The zipper makes it easier to slide in and out of the dress.
I will enjoy wearing the latest version of the Crocheted Yoke Dress.
