Little Girl Vintage Dress Free Pattern 

By AnnooCrochet Designs






I have always wanted to Try to make a Crochet Dress, but was a little shy to try. I am tremendously enjoying Creating Clothing for my Little Girl Abigail.
Creating a dress in  a small size somewhat seems less intimidating doesn't it?

Anyway, here is the result...not too shabby if I may say so myself...;-)

Tapestry Needle
Sugar'n Cream Yarn "The Original"
3 Dungarease Yarn in Vintage Pink



Stitches used
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
st: stitches
sk: skip

Gauge and measurements:


For the Sugar'n Cream yarn, and the shell st, it is 17 stitches, and 5 rows for a 4 inch square swatch
For the Dungarease yarn it is 21 stitches and 7 rows for a 4 inch square swatch!!!
