The front & back pieces of the crochet dress were made separately from bottom-up, then seamed together. A spiral fan edging decorate the hem & armholes, and the neck opening was edged in crab stitch. It was made with about 2” of negative ease throughout & fits snuggly. If you have wide shoulders, it is recommended to sew in a side zipper & you certainly can make this dress with no ease for a relaxed fit as well.

This written pattern assumes that you know the basics of crocheting. It is a condensed pattern for you to modify according to your measurements & design preferences, using your gauge.

Difficulty Level: Advanced Beginner.
