This is a combination crochet and sewing dress pattern. You crochet the bodice following the pattern and then combine it with a coordinating fabric skirt. Pattern includes instructions for crocheting a toddler size 2 bodice, with suggestions for adapting to fit smaller or larger sizes.

Pattern also includes dimensions and instructions for making the skirt and attaching to the bodice using a sewing machine, with universal instructions to allow you to adapt to your bodice size. While a sewing machine is recommended, you could also hand stitch the bodice to the skirt if you wanted!

Materials Needed
• Size I crochet hook, or whatever hook to reach gauge
• Medium weight yarn, like a cotton or acrylic
• At least 1/2 yard of coordinating fabric
• Coordinating thread
• Sewing machine

• Double folded bias tape
• Buttons

13 sts = 4” and 9 rows = 4” in hdc

Bodice Size
This pattern is for size 2 years with a 21” chest. Pattern includes suggestions for adapting to larger sizes: 4, 6, and 8. This theory could be used to go smaller, too. (Or try a smaller hook!)

Stitches Required
Fhdc = foundation half double crochet. This creates a foundation chain and a first row of half double crochet stitches all in one.
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
hdc = half double crochet stitch
sc = single crochet stitch
blo = back loops only. Insert your hook into the back loop only instead of both loops of the st.

Pattern also includes 16 different variations and ideas for spicing up your dresses!

This is a beginner crochet pattern - it could be considered intermediate depending on your seamstress abilities.
