If you're like me, you've bought several different balls of cotton yarn as you see them on sale or clearance through the years. Now what do I do with all these different yarn colors??!

Well, here's your answer... (Please click on the photos to enlarge them).....



Tadaaaa!
A 70's style dress that Daphne from Scooby Doo would totally wear if they'd just let her change out of that same purple outfit she's been wearing all these years! Grin



Here's the "back", (although the back and the front are really crocheted the same. I just had to use a different color around the pink stripe). So it can be worn either way.

I made two identical panels for the front and back, two skinny side panels with only one zigzag each that is slightly shorter than the front and back to accommodate the sleeves.
Crocheted the pieces together. Then went to town on the bell sleeves.

I used Lily 100% cotton Sugar 'n Cream yarn. So it's very heavy and bulky. (It went to just above my knees originally, but I washed it because I knew it would shrink up a lot and it sure did. I think I lost about three inches!) So, I wouldn't wear this as a dress.

I'm thinking of wearing it for Halloween as a big sweater with some bell bottom pants.
I hope it's a cool Halloween because this baby is HOT!
