    I like the stitches you used and will probably use them on another project (that is if you don't mind).

  5. Hi! Thank you for this very well, easy to follow pattern. I have a perfect little princess( my niece) that I am crocheting this dress. The pictures help a lot also. Would love to send picture once completed if that is ok?

    1. Shelby, I would love a picture!!!;-))))

  6. Good morning! I absolutely LOVE this dress!!!! How can I adjust the pattern to make a 3T dress? My Hannah is almost in 3T, 4T would fall off of her.

    1. No Problem, just begin with a 78 ch, and follow the rest just as it is...Happy Crochet!!!

    2. Thank you for responding so promptly! I stayed with the 84 chs. I'm glad that I did because I'm using Simply Soft by Caron and she's a little thinner than the norm. I have the entire top completed, tonight after work, I'll complete the skirt. This pattern is so beautiful! I'm glad that you shared! Thank you so much!

  7. This is, hands down, the most beautiful crocheted dress I have come across. I'm so glad it is free, Thank you! I can't wait to start!

  8. Can this pattern be adjusted for and 18-24 month. I have searched and searched for a pattern I like and all the cute ones are in chart form and I don't know how to read that. I have 4 days to come up with something for a 1st Birthday.

  9. this is so to adjust if i want to make into smaller size?do i just change hook size or the starting chain

  10. Oh my... I think this will be my first dress attempt for my toddler! I'm not even gonna change the colors! The turquoise will make her baby blues pop so pretty! Thank you for sharing this! <3

  11. I love this pattern for a dress for summer. How would I adjust and start for a size 6? Thank you!!

    1. Hi Becky, i would begin with 104 ch, and wrap it around your 6 year old, about 1 inch under her chest, it should fit snugly.
      Let me know if it helps!!!
      Happy Crochet!!!

  12. This is absolutely lovely! Thanks for sharing this pattern!
