Pretty Patty is my second 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. It is an easy pattern crocheted from the neck down with a frilly little ruffle around the yoke and puffy sleeves. The full skirt features a lovely open lace design. To finish the look is the satin ribbon at the waistline. The matching booties are the perfect finishing touch. 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.
I hope that you enjoy making Pretty Patty!

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!
