Baby Doll Dress FREE CROCHET PATTERN

I was just wondering if was the only one that has like 80 different projects going and not wanting to really work on one thing or the other.... Then when that happens,  overwhelm sets in and I just feel like I can never get them all done. One at a time one at a time right? WRONG! I just start a whole other project that I know is small and I know I will get done leaving all the others to frustrate me another day. HA!

So if you are like me then you will appreciate this pattern that I am going to put in here! Its a cute little baby doll dress! First time for me making clothing. Gotta start somewhere! :) 

PhotobucketDRESS: Finished size is about 4" x 4"1/2. Use an H hook. Grab some buttons or maybe some ribbon for the neck of the dress. Its yours so you can decorate it how ever you want! :) I used orange yarn because - it was easy to reach from where I was sitting at the time ;) Pink I think or yellow would be much cuter. Maybe even pink and then changing to white when you do the ruffle on the bottom and around the neck area. Read the pattern through before you decide :) And see the pictures! 

Have FUN!

  3. Hi Debbie.. It has been a while since I have been on here! :) Sorry. :):) I was looking at the pattern and I have not made this in so long! I made the orange one. And the pink one was actually from the pattern photo. I am trying to work it out in my head... Did you figure it out yet?
