This crochet dress is designed as a swimsuit cover-up. However, it's such a unique design that it would be a shame to limit it to just the beach.

This is another crochet dress that was originally designed as a beach cover-up but you can dress it up to create a high-fashion dress. The original shaping shows off a lot of leg with a v-shaped dip in the center, making this look like a dress for dancing. The fringe adds that extra touch. What really takes this up to the level of crochet fashion, though, is the smart use of ombre yarn.
