This is my first wearable item I have made in crochet and I made it in a day. I'm pleased with end result. I used the leftover yarn from the movie star dressing gown.

I hope you like it!

Very nice. I like the colour! :heart: I'm tempted to make this but I've no idea what to wear this with!

I'm going to wear it with dresses, in the book the model is wearing a long skirt and vest. I've got a couple of long skirts it will go with too.
It's worth doing, especially if your a beginner like me, the pattern was easy to follow and made up really quick.

If any one would like it pm me your address and I'll put it in the post. It's a size 's' from the book, but way too big for me.

If any wants it let me know.

It's crossed double crochet, a few rows of single crochet, and a row of picots. (US terms) It's so quick.

I'm going to have a go at the 'Fat bottom bag' next.
