I found this cute little black dress on the clearance rack at Target.
It was a little shorter than I like and kind of plain,
so in typical “Lindsay” fashion, I decided to add some crochet to it!
I used some lovely mint yarn to create an edging around the bottom,
which added just the right amount of length to the dress.
I did this by sewing a blanket stitch on the inside of the bottom hem.
Then, I crocheted 1 round of double crochet, 2 rounds of V-stitch, and 1 round of shells.
I love the little scallops on the bottom.
I really like the mint color, but I think I would use a much daintier yarn next time.
The dress still felt a little plain, so I added an embroidered peter pan collar to the top.
In hindsight, I probably should have used a mint embroidery thread to match the bottom hem.
Overall, I love the lacy look on the bottom and the little bit of detail on the top.
I think this is a fun way to add a little length to a dress!
