Pattern Description:

I love the designs from the Victorian Era. Whenever I can, I like to recreate these garments for today's crocheter to make for her favorite dolls. Our Victorian miss is sitting by her window and feeling sad and blue because the weather is too cold for her to play outside. Instructions included to crochet dress with attached petticoat, hair bow and shoes/socks made from worsted weight yarn, Luster Sheen, perle cotton (or substitute #10 thread).


  • Sizes G and D crochet hooks and size 7 steel hook or sizes needed for gauge; five #3 snaps; 2 white ribbon roses; two 1/4" white buttons; bobby pins; J. & P. Coats Luster Sheen, art. A95--14 oz. white, 10 oz. blue; 9.5 oz. worsted weight denim blue ragg yarn; 95 yds. white #5 perle cotton. Note: You may substitute #10 cotton thread for perle cotton as long as correct gauge is obtained. If you cannot find ragg worsted weight, try holding one strand of blue #10 thread with 1 strand of a thinner white worsted weight yarn (such as Caron's Simply Soft) for a similar tweed effect. Sport weight or baby yarn may be substituted for Luster Sheen.
