Isabella Dress

Isabella Baby Dress – 12 Months

Hi Everyone and welcome back! I am offering this new crochet baby dress “The Isabella Dress” for you all to enjoy. Take your time and look around.

This pattern is made using sc for the top, as to keep it closed up.  The bottom has an openness to it using shells and chains. It also has an option of a petticoat that you can make using tulle and 4 buttons to connect it to the dress,

What little darling baby girl isn’t going to love wearing this and won’t she feel so special on her birthday, Christmas or maybe even Easter? I know my little girls would have if I had crocheted when they were little.

Cut tulle in lengths of 21 inches. Add tulle

I added tulle to every other ch 2 sp, skipping the first one.  You can use 1 piece or more depending on your likes.  I used one piece of tulle. Use the Lark Foot Knot to assemble the tulle.

 

Add 4 buttons to the inside of the dress.  The buttons should be located just above where the ribbon will be.  I added 1 button on each side and one in the center front and center back. I used the empty first 2 chs as a buttonhole.  Here on the other side, you can adjust the fit.

Weave ribbon in and out and tie in a bow and you are finished.
