Revisiting BOHO and HIPPIE Fashions

The recent Boho Chic thread got me thinking (and reminiscing of my Greenwich Village coffee shop days).   When you google Boho or hippie style - results are quite similar.  So - I'm calling it hippie/boho.

 

Looking at some of today's Boho fashion pics in that thread - definitely not my look.  But when I look at individual crocheted or knitted pieces (vests, ponchos, coats and cardigans, totes/purses) ... they look just like the stuff I make.  

 

Any way - I'm finishing up a cardigan that is definitely Boho inspired. Looks a lot more complicated/intricate than it really is. 

 

DMing my SIL last night - we're both finishing up our current projects - discussing what we are going to do next.  We each have an "award winning" yarn stash.  I have this shaded blue yarn I'm anxious to make something with!

 

I'm sitting there crocheting ... thinking about what I'm going to make next ... watching Lisa Rinna yesterday and her duster gave me a great idea:  updated ccrocheted hippie vest.  

 

It's going to be longer and wider than the original, and the yarn a different texture and a lighter weight.  I dug up an old pattern and started it last night - and it looks like it will be a quickie to make.  I like lacy crocheted vests over t-shirts in the summer.  Jazzes up the look.

 

I plan to wear it with both my LOGO indigo denim pants and my new (ordered yesterday) white LOGO pants. and also some wide leg linen pants.

@ALRATIBA Thank you.  I never had the patience to do hand work like that, although, I did try it once.
