ARCADIA DRESS is based on my Arcade Lace Camisole, but the bodice is changed, and an A-line skirt is added with a frilled hem and the bling of slip stitch embroidery and beading.

Its a versatile cotton dress for all occasions! Include the optional “bling” for a dress to wear out on the town, or skip it for a dress to wear to the beach.

Pattern includes numerous photos to guide your make and help you through the tricky bits, aschematic, numerous stitch charts and descriptive notes on how to customise the top for best fit of your body.**

It’s a great project for an Intermediate Level Crocheter who wants to learn some new techniques!

Construction includes vertically oriented rows, top down construction and inserting pleats. Some hand sewing required.

Instructions are written in UK terms, with a UK-US conversion chart included.
