If you would like a beautiful and unique new dress for your doll, consider crocheting her a Sunrise Sunday Dress! You can also crochet a really cute Peplum style top using this pattern, by making the dress a little bit shorter.
This pattern features a square neck and short sleeves. It uses a very unique style stitch that gives the dress a fun wavy texture. The dress/top is crocheted from the top down with the trim and the back closure added after the body is crocheted. Because of the way it is crocheted it is easy to add or subtract length to the dress if desired. The back closure uses three 3/8” buttons for easy dressing. Yarn from Knit Picks was used to crochet the dress.
This PDF crochet pattern is designed to fit 13" dolls such as Little Darling®. It is also available at Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
This is an intermediate level crochet pattern. It includes written instructions with pictures (19 pages total). It also includes a summary of instructions (without pictures) to help save ink if you would like to print the pattern. The summary is 5 pages.

I have not completed the entire dress, but I have made the bodice. The directions are clear and well written and a diagram is included. I lengthened the bodice a little and attached a fabric skirt and I am very happy with it. Next I plan to make the entire dress as written. It would also be easy to make this dress in other sizes by changing yarn and hook size. Good buy!
