It's not quite warm in Chicago yet, but that hasn't stopped me from dreaming about warm-weather clothes. I've been thinking about making a flowy spring top with a crochet yolk. With the magic of Ravelry, I found this:
The pattern is Floral Motif Yolk Top from Crochet Adorned. How cute would that top be with a rustic leather belt?
The neckline is a bit square for me, though, and I don't like the thick straps. So I turned to ModCloth for some research/inspiration.
I love the collar shape on this one.
A lacy racer back! A racy lacer back!
This one is my favorite. I love the combination of the warm rose print with the cream-colored lace. I think I could use circular motifs laid out in a nice pleasing half-moon shape and then add a scalloped edging. I'm not going for a super lacy look, so I think it will work out!
