I learned to crochet from a learn how book fifty-five years ago. Now, I am a crochet designer!!!
I am currently teaching Beginners' Crochet Lessons at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, NC
Little girls inspired the dress. Dress can abe worn over a bathing suit or a teeshirt, or with a slip to dress it up.
A tie is inserted in the meshes at the waist to enhance the fit.
You can make the dress longer just by continuing the stitch pattern.
If you wish, I will email you the butterfly diagram so that it will be easier to follow. firstname.lastname@example.org
