CIRCULAR BOTTOM:

Folksy Flower Dress
 

  1. Measure the yoke where the fabric is to be attached. (Let it be X)
     
  2. Now X + 5" (Add this extra if you would like to give some pleats in front) is the circumference of the first small circle.
     
  3. Fabric needs to be folded in 4 layers with a right angled corner.
     
  4. Now to draw the first arc The radius R = (X+5)/6.28 [using the formula circumference =2 x pi x R]
     
  5. For Next arc = Length required for the bottom part + 1/2" seam allowance

  6. Another method is to cut two pieces for front and back (top part of trapezoid = 1/2(X)+ 1/2" seam allowance, Bottom : 2*(1/2X+1/2")
     
  7. Attach top crocheted piece to bottom fabric piece.

Any tips on how to adjust pattern to fit larger child?

this pattern is confusing, I got to third row and got lost can you make it simpler? I am experienced but can't figure this one out.

Help! I am experienced crocheter and was looking forward to trying this pattern but have had to rip out rows 7-10 three times because it doesn't come out right. I always come out with 58 or 59 s-edge clusters instead of 55 at the end of row 10. What am i doing wrong??

Did any one post a correction? I WOULD LIKE TO TRY the pattern, but not advanced. Pat

I have made a least ten now. They are very cute. I fiddled with the number of stitches. I only do one sc at beginning and end of even rows. I usually count to see where I need to start clusters (skip a stitch or not at the beginning of odd rows). Hope this helps. Other ladies did the sewing part and they added lace and other trims to the bottom.

This is really gorgeous - I need to learn to crochet!

This dress is simply beautiful. It would be a wonderful gift for a granddaughter or special friend.
