Had no trouble following the pattern. Never made the right cross double crochet stitch before. Illustration helped.. Made a matching headband using this stitch. Garment fit my American Girl Doll well.
I knit more than crochet, so was pleasantly surprised by how easy this pattern was. after minor hiccups, away I went. have started another. playing with colour combos and having fun. thank you for a delightful pattern.
I enjoyed crocheting this dress in bright fuschia pink - well written and a good fit for my 18" dolls.
Here's my finished dress.
I was privileged to test Ma Petite Cherie's newest dress (that's my Chocolate Raspberry tester dress). The DK weight yarn and hook used makes the dress work up faster, and fills in the holes often left by crochet. The clever construction, starting from the belt and working outwards, gives you so many possibilities - vest, tunic, dress - one, two, three colors - and I learned a new stitch! I've made two already and plan to make more in different lengths.
