A beautifully fitted high-waisted crochet bodice atop a froth of net, creates this gorgeous and oh-so-easy, dress. Using fingering cotton yarn for the bodice, a minimal amount of hand-sewing on a skirt with no hems and no seams, this easy PDF pattern works up very quickly, has buttons in back and satin ribbon threaded through the waist. By adding a little wand or a pair of ballet slippers, a fairy princess or a pretty ballerina costume is created. This pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl®.
Recommended Fabrics: Soft Fine Netting; Silk; Light-weight Chiffon
Requirements: For the Bodice, I used Elle Crochet no. 5 – one 50g ball renders three bodices.
Soft fine netting was used for the pink skirt and a slightly heavier mesh for the white skirt.

Beautiful, really have not tried it yet!
Just finished making this dress. Imperative to get the proper crochet cotton. Used 1.75mm crochet hook (pattern says 2.25mm). top was still a little bigger. Not the easiest oattern to work with vut end results are beautiful.
I tested this pattern and am very impressed at how my dress turned out. Looks beautiful on - love the delicate lace look of the crochet and frothy net skirt.
Great pattern, easy to follow. Just be sure to check your gauge, its critica! Makes a very cute dress.
