Orchid Crocheted Top Pattern For Sale

I love this top, specially to wear with jeans. Just wear your jeans and wear this top, and you will be ready in a second. Very light to wear and looks flatering for any body type. You can wear with or without camisole inside. And because you made this based on your measurement, it fits you perfectly. You can make a bolero or cardigan. You can make it with cap sleeve, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, or even long sleeve. All using the same pattern. You can even make your daughter the same dress for mother and daughter special occasion. The option is endless.
Since this pattern working from top down, you can try it as you go.
This pattern comes with row-by-row written direction in US crochet term and charts.

Sizes: Custom fit (from XXS to XXXXL because it based on your measurement)
The one in the pic is: Bust: 86 cm/34.5 inch, waist: 71 cm/28.4 inch, total length: 66cm/26.4 inch
Needle: Your favourite needle. I use size 3.5 mm or US size E - 4
Yarn: Fingering weight or lace weight or any yarn available
Yarn requirement: enough for your project
I used up around 1400 m yarn or 7 x 50 gram for the one in the picture
Notion: Tapestry needle, buttons, marker
Gauge: Variable
Difficulty: Experienced
Note: Since I always like the clarity of Japanese pattern in symbol, I would like also to use those symbol into my pattern beside the normal english written instruction. You can choose which one you prefer, but I suggest to use both.

Very pretty, Lily! I would love to make one...I'll have to see if I can schedule time to do it. How many days or hours do you estimate to finish this using size 10 thread and 3mm hook?

Lily said...

Hi Mimi, I would say it will take about 100 hours to make this using fine thread. I come out with this estimation based on the time I spent when I made wild rose which is made using size 10 thread and 2.5 mm needle. But then again, I am not a fast crocheter.

Mimi said...

Thanks for that info, Lily ;)
I'm amazed how you can make this pattern, with diagrams all by yourself, good work!

Lily, congratulations girl on the well done job! You are such an inspiration! Your Orchid looks gorgeous and you are right about the fit being flattering. Very feminine design and nice color choice.

Sheila said...

Another master piece... you are such an inspiration.

Wonderfully done Lily! I love how you made it so versatile for various sizes. As a woman with a larger chest it's sometimes difficult to find a pattern that fits...let alone looks this amazing! I can hardly wait to begin! Such wonderful designs you create, and what an adorable little girl you have.

How great you can design and sell your own pattern. It must be a hard job to write the pattern. I have tried but given up. You are great.

This is SO beautiful. I've never made anything this time consuming but if it keeps haunting me I might consider this one.
