    Hi, and welcome back to Country Willow Designs, where I have for you a new free crochet pattern, The Azalia Baby Dress. 

    I made the Azalia Baby Dress a little larger than normal, it is 24 months, but I am going to try and do other sizes.  Please comment on the sizes you would like to see.

    This dress is perfect for Spring, it is very lightweight.  It is made with #2 fine Premier Cotton Fair, and I love the look and feel of this and it drapes so nicely.

    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.
