Crochet & Sew Dress

Yesterday I made this little dress for my niece. I’m not a great seamstress, so I was excited when I saw this pattern on Pinterest which combines crochet with sewing. It’s quite simple, but I made it harder by using a fabric that needed a lining. crochetsewdress

My sister-in-laws mother gave me this piece of fabric and I knew exactly what to use it for. I had been wanting to make this little dress for a while.

You can find the pattern on Purlsoho.com.

I adapted the crochet straps by doing a half double stitch instead of a single crochet. It worked out very well. I used a fine cotton yarn and a needle number three and pretty much followed the stitches and measurements of the said pattern.

I am a very visual person and I found it easier to make the dress by drawing out all the measurements on a little diagram, the pattern is very extensive so read carefully and have fun making it. It only took me a couple of hours to make, it was really worth it.

Let me know if you try it as well.

God bless!
