crochet trim dress - anthropologie inspired

I saw the xanthe dress from anthropologie on pinterest and adored the colours and really thought I could use some of my crochet stash so went looking for a tee-shirt.  I found a jersey skirt in the local charity shop next day, recut it to a long tee-shirt and crochet-ed the trim.  As it turned out, the double knit cotton I used was waaaay tooo heavy, so I did buy the colours in 4 ply cotton and did a mix of dc fillet, hdc, and sc.


I have a photo explanation on how to do the trim here
and the blog post on the dress is upsew.ie
