Pretty in Pink – Another Exquisite Pattern from Passion Poupees

19 Oct

Here is an absolutely gorgeous top by Odile at Passion Poupees that I made very soon after Jeannie arrived. I haven’t posted it till now as (obviously) I still hadn’t sewn on the button at the back (I have now!)

The yarn was my first use of ‘mercerised’ cotton for crocheting and I was very pleased with the professional looking result. I used Rowan Siena shade 655 Aurora (pale pink), but now cannot remember which size of crochet hook I used.

Another reason I was unable to post a picture earlier was that I hadn’t yet come up with the rest of the outfit, but yesterday I made a lovely pair of black trousers based on one of Odile’s patterns for a Christmas theme.  I omitted the flare and lace at the bottom of the trousers in her pattern and narrowed the waistband and I think they look fine.  Well, to be honest, they look closer to fishnet tights than a pair of trousers!

Jeannie is wearing Annie’s Corolle riding boots.
