Tess Shirt or Dress (any size)

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • create basic crochet stitches such as SC, DC, HDC, ect.

Pattern Description:

The Tess pattern can be either a shirt or a dress. Or you can have your little girl wear it as a dress until she grows and then it can be a shirt! I use the same shirt/dresses for my 2 and 7 year old daughters.

Using bright colors makes these cute and fun. Or you can use muted colors and have a more heritage look. You can also change the look of this shirt/dress by adding ribbon, or attaching flowers and buttons.

The pattern is written so that you can make it in a custom size, ensuring it fit your little girl.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • You choose the size to make (and a dress can be worn until it's a shirt, so it will be usable a long time)


  • 2 skiens of your yarn of choice, H hook, ribbon and buttons (optional)
