How To Crochet A Dress

Fashion has been an essential part of all the eras. It changes faster than people change their clothes. It is very rare for anything to stay in fashion all the time.

Crochet is luckily one of them. Why luckily?? Because I know how to crochet. It gives me immense pleasure when people admire my crochet pieces in whatever form they are.

I don’t care if ponchos are in fashion or crochet flower brooches, whether stoles are in or crochet slippers, may it be crochet dress or a crochet hat, whatever it is I can make use of my skill.

My daughter always asks to teach her how to crochet a sweater dress? But I never teaches that to her, only because I love making things for her.

I have made dozens of crochet dresses for my daughter’s dolls. And it helped me a lot to make her dresses as well. For beginners I would advise to make doll’s dress at first.

Here I am going to tell you how to crochet a dress for a doll which you can even finish within two hours at the max.
