Crochet Shades of Pink Toddler Dress

Published March 24, 2016 by Jayashiangel

It’s spring time here in Phoenix & I wanted to make a little dress for a friends daughter that was both cute and light in weight….Using some balls of cotton I picked up thrift store shopping somewhere months maybe even a year ago I finally found it a home…Love this free pattern that is comes in many sizes (Small 1-3 Med. 4-6x Large. 7-10 )….and can be easily changed and modified to ones desire…I have used this pattern to make the size small before for a one year old and it fit well…I also like that it has no buttons/seam lines/ties….

I personal was concerned w/ it being see thru so I bought a long tank Cami in XS and it fit perfect under it for $1.50 at another thrift store…I gifted it today and the mom was super happy and just loved it…

Crochet Spring Tank Tops

Summer tank Top Mix

A friend has a little 3 year old girl and I thought she may like some spring time tanks since mom can’t get her out of the winter sweaters I made for her and the weather here is now in the in the upper 70*F….I used up scrap yarn so the cost to me was zero if you did one top the amount of yarn is under 5 oz….To get the right size I made sure the top chest measured 22 inches and then length was 9 inches tallĀ  and the top to cover the child’s breast area was 3.5 inches.

Note: I think this would work out the same way for an adult if you make a chain the size of the adult just above the tops of the breasts & then as long as you desired the length…

Thanks for sharing these free patterns ….

This baby bib was very quick I used 2 different balls of cotton one for the bib and one for the strap this allowed for me to get 2 bibs..I changed the bib strap by adding in different length button holes to allow for tighter or loose depending on the babies neck size….Used a tighter stitch single crochet stitch as pattern called for a Double crochet so to avoid drool or milk getting on baby…

Thanks Beverly A. Qualheim for sharing this free pattern which allows a knitter or a crocheter to make…..
