Don't be scared to cut and alter crochet garments!!!
Well it's not everyday you find a complete crochet suit in mint condition....so much work put into it - beautifully made - of course I had to have it. Alas is was a little bit big, making me look like a saggy baggy Nanna. So I took it in.
I've made crochet garments before from blankets so I have cut and sewn crochet before which probably made me brave enough to tackle this....
As long as you sew it/overlock it/zig-gzag and seal the edges pretty much straight after cutting, you should be okay and not an unravelled mess. Then wear it! Preferably with a pussy bow blouse and big hair.
And as a friend said when she saw me dropping the kids at school, "well, it's not everyday you see someone in so much aqua crochet."
