The great crochet dress comeback of 2010

The humble crochet dress is having its 15 minutes of fashion fame this Spring.

Here’s a look from Oscar de la Renta’s house this Spring, at Bergdorf Goodman’s. Isn’t that an AMAZING dress? Take it from this double-decade crocheter, that’s not an easy pattern. If I had $4K lying about, I’d nab the ensemble.


And then you open your copy of Vogue, and there’s Madonna eating noodles with her fingers (wtf?) in a black, crochet Dolce & Gabbana number.

Everywhere you look, crocheted dresses… was it Gordana Gehlhausen’s doing? Remember Gordana, my personal favorite from last season of Project Runway? The Rodney Dangerfield of Season 6? And who could forget her mad crocheting skills?


Perhaps not, but she gets to ride this trend as well with her Vogue Knitting spread, expected to appear this Spring. I’ll pick up a copy — I’d like to make the one done in the nude color, it would hide the shelving that you would need to build in, but perhaps tipped with black edging to the skirt hems.

Crocheting sisters, our time has come! We are the champions, my friends.

  1. The dress above is almost identical to the Interweave Crochet Skirt – Sapphire Stars

    that came out in Interweave Crochet, Fall 2006.

    It would be very easy for you to steek it back and make a same same 🙂

    • Gorgeous crochet skirt! Amazing!! It looks like I’m going to be busy this Spring if I try to keep up with this trend. 😀
