I originally made this dress in 2011 as a donation to charity using the Summer Splendor Doily as inspiration and after posting on my blog, there was an enormous response for the pattern, so I began to work it out. Its been translated into Swedish and Danish languages and a talented crocheter has made a YouTube tutorial so even beginners can work this pattern. It has always been listed for free and will remain free. Enjoy! :)
