Darling Dianne is my first crochet pattern and as you may have noticed it is left-handed. By no means is it meant to be for left-handed people only! My testers, who were right-handed, had no problem following the instructions and their dresses are so pretty.
This simple little dress is crocheted from the neckline down and features a lovely lace skirt. The Picot edging around the neck and sleeves add that special touch. Dress it up for any special occasion by adding buttons, ribbons, or any other embellishments you like. Instructions are included for the tulle half slip which shows off the beautiful lace work in the skirt. Easy enough to even stitch by hand if you don’t have a sewing machine.
Hope that you enjoy making Darling Dianne!
This pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

The pattern was very easy to follow and is turning out great! I’m extremely happy about the left- handed instructions, since I am left-handed! I would definitely recommend this pattern to other crocheters. Please make more!
It turned out pretty cute!
