Every girl needs a tutu dress! Go ahead and make one for your little fashionista! Polka dots plus tutu skirt equals cuteness overload!

This adorable dress is made in such a way that is could be easily adjusted for different sizes. Minimal shaping at the top allows for comfortable wear while not being complicated even for beginners. Straps are tied which makes them adjustable for a great fit. No sewing required!

The pattern is fully customisable, meaning that even gauge is not that important. If you choose different yarn, just make the beginning chain long enough to fit around your model’s chest, and keep trying it on as you crochet to define length of the top.

While crocheting with thin yarn will take you some time, the pattern is simple enough even for beginners, and the results are well worth the effort.
