I participated in the "Patricia Pepe Skirt" Crochet-Along from Crochetville's boards about a year ago.  The pattern was provided by a very talented lady from Crochetville and it was all done with diagrams/graphs in lieu of a written pattern.

Since I had never completed a pattern by reading diagrams/graphs it was challenging at first but it was very rewarding in the end.  I just love how it sways...so flirty!


 





Next up is Lionbrand's Matinee Swing Jacket (free from their site but you have to register).  I thought I would get bored with the rows and rows of hdc's but it was actually a very quick project.

I love that skirt. So cute and flirty! The jacket is cute too and looks versatile. Great colors for both!

Thanks so much for all of the compliments. You are all too kind!  Grin

I have to go back and edit the post...I phrased my words wrong because I had no intention of suggesting that I "made" the skirt (as in, wrote the pattern).  I did NOT make the pattern.

I participated in the Crochet-Along and used the pattern that was provided by a very talented lady from the Crochetville boards.

Thought I should clarify that...off to edit my words.  Guess that's what happens when I start posting like a mad woman.  Must proofread more often.

Thank you!  It was definitely one of the most popular Crochet-Alongs from Crochetville's boards.

The skirt is gorgeous!  You said that you got the pattern while you were participating in a croceht-along.  Do you know if the pattern is still available, and if so, where would I find it?

Hi ,
The skirt is fantastic ! love the colour of the jacket as well -I'm part way through the same jacket  - aiming to have it done  by jan 12th for MIL's birthday . Just finished the back and started one half of the front  - do you reckon I'm in with a chance  - or should i cut my losses and do a quick scarf .....?!!
