Crochet vest from Boston Proper. Starting...

Notes and charts for this vest are available here:

One of my readers here shared followed link where girls are making that vest.
http://club.osinka.ru/topic-73911
I checked it out, even suggested abcrew to look into it.
Girls are doing really well, no offense, but something important FOR ME is missing.
Here are the motives:
I think distances between squares must be longer. That is what makes this vest standing out.
So I spent some time today to try it out. Here what I made.


I used cotton #5 and hook #2. I think a little bit thicker yarn would be better, but I've bought that thread an year ago (!) and I am sick and tired of trying to figure out for the whole year what to make out of it! 
I think with blue jeans and white top it will look really nice in summer.

Crochet not-for-everybody dress.

I have no idea about the brand.
Mmmm, I don't know what to say. It's outstanding, that's for sure.

Linen scarf with crochet embellishment.

Well, it's 100 % linen scarf plus 100 % wool embellishment. I didn't use any machines to make it, but, of cause fabric is made with machines help. I wish I could make it myself as well as yarn :) but I am not there yet.
Anyways recently I am a little bit obsessed with everything natural.
Sorry for so many pictures. I spent a good part of my day shooting them, so I want them all here. Who does photography knows how hard it is to choose keepers. :)
