I was cleaning my closet and came across this handmade summer top. I made it back in 2010 and only got to wear it a few times that summer (it looked lovely worn on a white cami with a white skirt and I also wore it with jeans). What a pity that I’ll never be able to wear it again!
When I made it, it was already quite fitted. Then in a year, I had my second son, so I had grown one size up.
I don’t dare to unravel this top as I love every stitch of it (especially the lacy part). And I don’t want to donate it either (I guess I just can’t let it go). My cousin has a ten-year-old girl, and perhaps in a few years I can give it to her if she likes it. But for now my lovely lilac top just sits in the closet.
The pattern was from a Russian or Ukrainian crochet magazine that my mom bought me. The upper part is knitted and the bottom is crocheted.
Do you have any handmade items that you have no use of, but wouldn’t part with them?
