Edwardian Lace Tee

Rad in Red Tank

Crochet motifs are a really fun way of creating fabric—especially when they are joined as you go. Changing hook sizes is an easy way to create shaping with smaller motifs at the waist, and larger, looser ones at the hips. Make this top as shown or customize the length into an airy summer dress!
