The Cutest Crochet Baby Dress You Ever Did See

I am so excited to show you the latest crochet project I've been working on. I crocheted my very first baby dress!


It might just be one of the cutest things I've ever made. I love how it turned out! *Squeal* 

As you can see, just the bodice part of the dress is crocheted and the bottom half is fabric. This solves a lot of the problems associated with crochet dresses: it's not see-through so it doesn't need a slip and little baby toes won't get stuck in the stitches!

For the bodice, I used one skein of Sugar and Cream in the color Tangerine [aff. link]. The skirt fabric is from Joann. It's the perfect vintage floral with a subtle polka dot background and the colors are divine. I am already scheming up another project because I want to use this fabric again!

The pattern says the dress is 6-9 month size, and I agree. The original pattern suggested making a circle skirt, but I chose to do a gathered skirt instead. It was just a personal preference (okay, okay... I'm lazy and thought a gathered skirt would be much easier).

Here's a little peak at the back:


I used two vintage pearly buttons from my stash to close up the neckline.

And here's the real showstopper... my adorable niece modeled the dress for me. GAH! She is so stinkin' cute!




If those pics don't make you want to crochet, I don't know what will. Ha!

  2. Hi, I went to link for the free pattern and a lot of comments were saying that the pattern had errors in it and it wasn't fixed. Did you find that to be true when you made yours? Thanks!

    1. I didn't find any errors when I made mine. Of course, sometimes if I can't figure out part of pattern I just wing it. Hee hee.

    1. I cut a rectangle of fabric, sewed it into a "tube" shape, hemmed the bottom, then gathered the other edge and sewed it to the crochet bodice. Hopefully that makes sense. I used the full width of fabric (43 inches) and made the skirt about 10 inches long.
