Other entry this project: Here
Actually I finished this project last August, but I had no opportunity to take a photo. This was my first attempt to design a crochet top. I made the top part quite solid using shell pattern because I wanted to wear this without lining inside. I also did some decreasing after the bust area so it would have some shape. As you can see, the waist part is quite transparent. I was planning to weave in ribbon, but I could not find the matching color ribbon. So, in the end I left it as it is.

When I wore this out, it was noon time and the weather was very hot. However, because it had no lining, I did not feel hot. I could even feel the breeze, specially on my waist area.

Hello. I just discovered this blogpage and your lovely crochet top! I have a question about the finishing - did you block the garment and if so, did you do it before it was assembled/sewn together, or after?
Thank you so much.

Hi Jennifer, I blocked it before and also after. It is easier to sew together after the pieces already blocked. After sew the pieces together, I washed it again and just lay them flat to dry.
