So, for homecoming, my sister's lending me her pretty yellow and blue dress. I really wanted to make something to wear to homecoming too, so I made this. It took 4 full balls (plus a little bit of a 5th) of Samoa (this really nice mercerized cotton). I made a couple mistakes, but they're barely noticeable.





Hope you all like it!

It's very cute, and I think it's incredibly cool that you -made- something to wear to your homecoming.  Cheesy I love the color, and it doesn't hurt that "The Happy Hooker" is one of my favorite crochet books. Great job!

Thanks for all the compliments!!! The dress isn't complete yet (have to add straps to it) but otherwise, this is how it's gonna look! My sister made it herself for a wedding she went to, so I feel really proud to wear it. (sorry about the poor quality picture, my mom and sister are busy and the mirror's dirty)
