The Golden Hour Sundress evokes feelings of bright summer sunsets and floral blooms. Beautiful lace detailing along the skirt and sleeves elevate an otherwise simple, double-crocheted dress. This dress is uniquely constructed by working the bodice flat before shaping the skirt in the round.

This dress is constructed by first working the bodice and then the skirt. Bodice will be worked flat beginning at the bottom front and working up towards the neckline, separating to shape each shoulder, and joining together to work down the back. You will then join both ends of the bodice to work in the round. From this point, the skirt will be worked in the round, downwards. Neckline and sleeves will then be worked at the end and seams will be worked on either side of the bodice to finish.

Modifications for length will be noted in the pattern.
