Crochet was very popular in the 1970's! This colorful dress was designed to look like a dress that would have been crocheted and worn in the 1970’s. It was made using the neon colors that were popular at that time. The way that it is crocheted gives it a unique, playful look. Your doll will enjoy showing off her new crochet dress!
The design features a fun chevron pattern. The back closure uses four ½” buttons for easy dressing.
Instructions for the color changes are included, although you can use your own unique color design if desired.

Haven't had time yet ...but it looks like it will be easy to follow ... :)
Well I am happy I finally have doll patterns I can crochet. The only bad thing about this pattern was, the fact that it wasn't an easy pattern to follow it was very confusing, someone like me that has been crocheting since 1974, should not have to worry about crocheting an easy pattern like this one. Overall I would say only advance crochet individuals should work with this pattern, but if you are a challenge this is the pattern for you. I will still give it an A.
