Clematis Yoke Dress

Clematis Yoke Dress
Earlier this spring I saw this GREAT upcycled t-shirt on Pinterest by the brilliant Cal Patch (have I told you I fell down the Pinterest rabbit hole yet?) and decided I NEEDED to make one for myself pronto!

So, a few weekends ago I put down my needles to modify a WhiteWash dress I got this spring at the Flax Barn Sale! (Have I told you that right out of college I worked for Flax, which is based outside of Ithaca?)

I grabbed a size B crochet hook, a skein of Juniper Moon Findley in Bittersweet, the pattern (which Cal helped me find!), and got to it... in a few short hours I had my new favorite summer dress !

Thanks Cal, for enabling me to get this done... and Maya for the super sweet photo shoot this morning (with eggs!)

  2. I've always wanted to try this around the neckline of a plain t-shirt! But first I'd need to learn to crochet...

    1. Aw, thanks so much! The pattern is from the September/October 2009 issue of Crochet Today! magazine, which is out of print, but it sounds like they are working on getting an electronic version of it up on-line... I'll let you know when it is available. In the meantime, maybe your library has a copy?

  6. Awesome work, Laura! Love your Adorn/Adorn Anew patterns, too. :)

    The pattern is from the September/October 2009 issue of Crochet Today! magazine (where I am an editor). I'll get the pattern available digitally, and post to twitter (and here!) when it's online.

    Thanks for resurrecting the pattern, Laura!

  9. Laura,

    this dress was posted on Fiberfarm.com and they linked to this post of yours. I just went to Crochet Today and while I did find the pattern for Upcycle T-shirt, I didn't see any indication of the pattern being available electronically. Mind you, this was my first visit to Crochet Today and I may have been looking in the wrong place, did you ever hear back that it was available? Thanks much! Fran

  10. hi! I think Crochet Today is looking at reviving the pattern with Cal.. if not, perhaps Cal will release an updated version this spring? I told her I would test crochet for her if she did! I'll post here when I have a link!
