A reversible crochet bodice featuring a chevron pattern. (Button in front or back.)

This is a crochet bodice for sizes 6 months to girls size 14. This includes a very detailed picture tutorial on how to attach a fabric skirt onto a crochet bodice. This is just one way to attach a fabric skirt to a crochet bodice; there are many different ways that it can be attached. The instructions on attaching the skirt are showing a sewing machine but this can be done by hand as well. The instructions have also been simplified in that you do not have to add button holes to the fabric skirt.
