Item details

This listing is for a CROCHET PATTERN for the Dress, purse, and shoes ONLY--not the finished items and not the doll or anything else in the picture.

If you are interested in a finished set in the color of your choice or any of the pieces, please see the custom order listing in my shop or drop me a convo. I would be happy to make you one of your own.

However, if you'd like to create one of your very own, this pattern is for you.

In forty-odd years of crocheting, I have made lots of doll dresses and accessories, hats, scarfs, afghans and more booties than I can count, but only lately have I started working on designing my own patterns. I recently sold the original of this set, and I've made a couple of custom orders for others.

The dress is made in once continuous piece with the sash/bow added later. Please note: the sash is rather complicated, but there are directions for a simpler sash included.

The pattern is done primarily in single crochet (sc) with a minimum of other stitches for shaping. It's probably not for a complete amateur in terms of crochet, but it has lots of pictures, so it wouldn't be that hard for an advanced beginner. If you are new to patterns, you might want to pay close attention to the pictures included with the piece. I believe the hardest parts are stitches "around the post" and picking up stitches to edge the pieces.

The pattern is written in US crochet terms.

The purse and slippers are included in this pattern.

Upon receipt of payment, you can elect to download directly or I will be happy to email you a copy of the pdf. If you would prefer it sent to another email, let me know the address. (If you would like a hard copy, please contact me for shipping costs before purchasing.)
