...The skirt part is worked up to the waist and then shaped, the crochet pattern then changes in a cluster pattern.
.... the waist is held in with a chain and double stitch belt which has a 3 loop styling at either end.
....I am playing with light on crochet patterns at the moment and I like this type of photography which plays with focus. the lens was trying to peep through the open stitches to view the other side. (Would work much better with a quality camera)
