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.

Note Theres an error in the pattern. To help simplify the pattern, Ive added comments to two rows Row 2 Note Only this first pass of Row 2 has 26 S-edge clusters, all subsequent repeats have an increased number of S-edge clusters with the goal being to grow from 26 to 55 by bib end. Row 5 Note The idea is to grow the S-edge clusters from 26 in the first pass of row 2 to 55 clusters in the 4th repeat of row 2. Therefore, you cannot do just 2sc in back loop only or the number of S-edge clusters wont increase. It will maintain count. Therefore, you must achieve 110 total sc from which, using every other st, 55 clusters can be made. To achieve this, work the 2 sc in back loop only per pattern for some length, like 5 sts, then add 3 sc in one back loop only and continue in this manner counting the number of sc up to 110.

did you misread? it's 3sc not 2

Has this pattern been fixed?

Hi there, we have reached out to the designer but unfortunately she has not responded to multiple inquiries. We apologize for the inconvenience. - Julia from FaveCrafts

Please post the correct pattern. Its so lovely. Can't wait to make it...

Why is no one answering to these comments. I was going to start this project but don't think I will now.

I have reached out to the designer and will update the project as soon as I receive updated - Julia from FaveCrafts

where is update please

Hi there. We never heard back from the blogger but if you scroll up through the comments, azanotka50 5977315 has provided helpful instructions for fixing the pattern! Good luck!

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

bodice. I also used fat quarters to make a tube and sewed that to the crocheted top.

ONly a portion of my reply shows here....sorry. I used a bigger hook.

I'd like to know how to change my preferences please.

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.
