Finally, Some Pictures

Some FO's with actual modeling pics. I didn't have a chance to "do my face" yet, but had to take advantage of my husband being around a little this AM to take pics-








From SnB Happy Hooker, the Short N Sweet Bolero-size Medium. than called for and I Three skeins of Reynolds Saucy Mercerized Cotton in color Denim (w/2 to 3 yards leftover-talk about sweating it) and H hook-gauge was dead on. I plan to make another one, but maybe instead of the relief stitches, just doing double crochets for the fp and bp part-for a lighter jacket and little different look.

Next Up, The Shoop-Shoop Capelet from Amazing Crochet Lace (Doris Chan) modeled. I don't plan to wear it with a white cami, but for photo shots, I wore the white cami.








Lastly, the tank from NY Yarns-as I said, I wish it were longer and may or may not wear it.






All for today, I have pain management in 15 minutes, gotta run.....

Nice! You've been busy =) The pink top is great, just wear it with something under it maybe? The shortness would bug me too, but I think with a simple white tank under it that's longer (like the cami) it'll be fine!

Everything looks fabulous!

Love them D. You did a fantastic job. The tank rocks. It is my fav. Who knows, I might try that one. It doesnt look as complicatedas that other one.

Love, love, love it all....you tiny little hot mama thing you! As far as the tank, I think it's fine as is. Hang on to it, maybe it will grow on you. I wear thanks that are too short with thinner, long sleeved shirts. I may be committing a huge fashion faux pas but like I give two hoots! Ha! Great job all around.

Love the bolero!!!! Actually everything looks great...nice job! I may have to check out that bolero in the SNB.

Priscilla said...

Everything looks great.

Stacy said...

Deneen those are all great! I love the blue color of the Short and Sweet, that capelet is darling and I really like the tank too. You are all impressive today aren't you?

Donna said...

You do such beautiful work Deneen! My favorite is the bolero of course, but everything turned out really nice!

Wendy said...

Everything looks so good! The tank looks way better on you then the mannequin.

April said...

Fantastic job on everything. I think the caplet is my favorite. The shortness of the tank would annoy me, too. I think you had mentioned that you lengthened the bottom already? What if you continued that stitch a little longer? Or a cami under it would of course work fine, too. Woman, you've got one teeny little frame, too! The bolero really shows off your waist size. I think we might all be a bit jealous! :)

Wonderful FO's! Nice job! I'm woefully behind on my SnS vest but I have a good excuse, as usual. Your's look terrific!

Sheryl said...

Those are fabulous fos! I'm going to be doing Short & Sweet this summer - I love the denim color. And don't you love Doris Chan's book! I can't decide what to make first. Finishing my wips must come first. You look great!

Mimi said...

Lovely pics! My faves are the capelet and tank. I think the tank would look great over a regular tank top and worn with jeans or shorts ;)

I love the Bolero great color. You are a great crocheter.

Kari said...

For some reason I couldn't comment yesterday (my computer was acting).

Madelyn said...

Wow, a bunch of FO's. Everything looks great Deneen.

Sheila said...

You have been a busy lady... love the finished outfits.. your summer wardrobe will be off the hook...lol... great job.

The tank is great--length is perfect for layering--and who would wear that mesh without something under it unless you weren't planning on leaving the bedroom? ;-) Yeah for good weather!!

Yanno, if you wear one of those tank tops with the shelf bra inside them, in a complementary color, I don't know why you can't wear that crocheted tank on top. Last night I was at the movies, and all the youngsters were wearing precisely that... the tank beneath peeked out several inchest below their sweaters and other tops. Very cool look!
