Free Crochet Pattern – Blue Baby Dress

This is a very quick and easy baby dress to make.  And versatile as well, it can be worn as a sundress, or as a jumper with a tshirt or blouse under it!  Mindless work, no referring back to the pattern over and over, the skirt is all repetition of one row.

The demo is for size 6 months.  Make it any color, a white one would be lovely as a Christening Dress… or a party dress!
See the companion pattern Bethany #1123 (pictured here in white with 3 colors of ribbon) that is for sale in my Ravelry store, and it includes 2 headband patterns, as well as a flower for the shoulder

    1. Single crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook, and each stitch of the chain.
    2. Chain 1 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch only, single crochet in each stitch across the

    chain 2 and turn, make 2 double crochet in the same stitch, make 3 double crochet in each stitch

    around, slip stitch to join. (For a less full skirt, work 2 double crochet in each stitch, instead of 3.)

    1. Chain 2, and turn, make 2 double crochet in the same stitch, *skip the next 2 stitches, make 3 double

    crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * around, slip stitch to join in the top of the first chain 2.

    1. Slip stitch up to the center stitch of the next shell, chain 2, make 2 double crochet in the same stitch,

    In the center stitch of each remaining shell, make 3 double crochet, at the end of the row, slip stitch to join

    1. Repeat step 8 until the skirt is 6-12 mths: 17 inches

    (3 loopy rows in this sample.)

    1. Straps:  Work a chain that is long enough to reach from front to back, over the shoulders.

    3-6 months: 20 stitches;

     

    *Single crochet in the 2nd stitch from the hook, and each stitch of the chain.

    Repeat from * for 4 rows;

     

     

      LOOPY BORDER: Work as many rows of loopy rows as desired: *chain 3, skip the next stitch, single

    crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * across the row. (3 rows in this sample)

     

    1. Attach straps to front of dress with a yarn needle and same yarn.

    Attach straps to the back of the dress, meeting in the back; this will prevent the straps from slipping off

    the shoulders.

     SPACE BETWEEN STRAPS IN FRONT:

    3-6 months: 1.5 inch;

     

    Weave all yarn ends into the finished work.
