I made this dress in white and pink. I also made the dress into a sweater in pink, by following the direction up until the end of bodies I ch3 then started the 'V' pattern and dc at the end row, I repeated the pattern for approximately 12 row. I then went back to the part for the button holes and follow the directions. I had 38 stitches instead of 19. I used the 'v' pattern for the sleeves working 17 rows the second row from the end I weaved pink ribbons in the sleeves to fit the infant arms.

Made this in black & white with hot pink reverse sc around neck and at the bottom of dress. If I do say so myself it looks great.

I noticed this dress first in black and pink. can you tell me the yarn that you used? Thanks

I am in the process of making this and I'm at the skirt, but I'm finding my skirt seems to fan out WAY more than the picture shows, even though I've followed your instructions to the T... Is it just showing smaller in the picture but is actually much wider at the bottom or did I do something wrong? (btw for those of you not sure how or where to change colors, you fasten off at the end of each section that to change to a new color, you would simply attach it the way the pattern describes for the next part.)

is there any tutorial on this dress?? How do you reverse single crochet, the pattern seems confusing to me, as i have never learned to read a pattern before, I'm trying to each myself to read written patterns...I usually just crochet by following you tube...

The instructions for this pattern read as if the dress is to be made all in one colour-white. I might like to make it in white & the other colour shown or another colour of my choice. I also notice because of that, there are no specifications when to change to the 2nd colour. I might like to use this pattern for my church bazaar but quantity is not specific for amounts of 2 colours I would need to buy.

I would love to make this, but I don't know how much yarn I need for the purple part.
