This crochet dress comes in the season’s favourite off-the-shoulder style combining sexy upper part with the flattering A-line silhouette that gives this dress a balanced elegance. And if you need to change the look in seconds - move the upper part over shoulders.

This project is suitable for beginners thanks to a simple repeat of shell motifs used throughout. Apart from that there will be no increasing - the dress gets its beautiful shape by changing three hook sizes as you work. If you do not fancy making thick crochet garments for beginners this might be a fun dress to make and wear.

You will receive:

detailed instructions in ENGLISH for every row;

HQ diagrams (all charts are blurred in the screen shots: conceptcreative-store-dress-moonlight );

written explanation of all rows of the diagrams is included (in case you are not used to work with the crochet charts); written instructions are given in American and British crochet terms (two separate files).

This dress crochet pattern is provided for sizes:
XS with bust measured 79-83 cm (31-33’’);
S with bust measured 88-92 cm (34.5-36.5’’);
M with bust measured 97-101 cm (38-40’’);
L with bust measured 106-110 cm (41.5-43.5’’);
XL with bust measured 115-119 cm (45-47’’);
2XL with bust measured 124-128 cm (48.5-50.5’’);
3XL with bust measured 133-137 cm (52.5-54’’).

The item is worked top down and you will be able to regulate the length as you go, making a knee length dress, shorter tunic or even a top.

Additionally I have included instructions on how to make such a dress for your little girl.

Level: easy if you know how to work basic crochet stitches like chains, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet, slip stitches (in American crochet terms). You can stop crocheting as soon as you reach the desired length.

Choosing the right YARN and HOOK to achieve great results
