Very pretty, I may attempt this.


Oh goodness, another amazing little girls dress. This lacy shell dress is perfect for a special day. Advance skills scare me. But as I have said before if you don't try different levels out, how do you know if your crochet skills have advance? I am excited to give this a try.

I think I can handle making this sweet little dress with the great instructions that the designer has. It is very straight forward and explained very thoroughly. The little model is precious. I love the little sunflower embellishment that is added. This is a great dress for the little ones to wear to church.

This is a beautiful Lacy Shells Dress to go with the hat. I do like the written pattern, that is well written but she doesn't say how much yarn is used and there is no place on the pattern page to ask. So I'm not sure how much yarn to buy? Other then that, I'm going do buy a yarn that is always in the store so I know if I don't have enough, I can buy more. I'm looking forward to making this one and hope it comes out a nice as what is pictured. My Granddaughter will love this.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Anyone know how much yarn is needed for the dress. I don't see that info anywhere. thanks.

Hi linda, This is a perfect question for the blogger who created this project! I would click on over to the pattern and then either check the comments section there or email the blogger to ask. We just have permission to link out to great, free patterns. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

could you tell me the decrease needed to make this a 12 month dress???

I usually shy away from crocheted garments but since this is small (toddler size) and has a matching hat pattern, I decided to check it out. The instructions are clear enough, but there arent any photos of the process. There arent any tricky stitches either. Considering that the designer describes the project as advanced, additional guidance would be very helpful.


I made this dress in dark red with a velvety black ribbon with the idea that it could be a Christmas dress .... it turned out beautiful. i think so anyways ......

This is one of the cutest dresses I've seen for little girls. Adorable! I made the hat and now I'm going to make the dress.

will be trying this pattern as dress is really beautiful

Such a beautiful dress! Pattern is very well written and so easy to understand!

Now this is a beautiful Lacy Shells Dress Pattern! I wish I could print it out. I want to make this dress and hat for my young granddaughters too. The pattern is well written and easy to understand. I can't wait to get the yarn and make this beautiful dress and matching hat. Thank you so much for this free pattern.

Copy and paste to a document so you can take the pattern with you ... just make sure you give the author credit if you actually post it anywhere! #bestideaever

Ach, it's not working. sorry. I'm loving this pattern myself.

Wow. This is so lovely for my 4-year old granddaughter. I will make this soon with the matching hat. Here is the link to the pattern for the dress http// == rochet-pattern/ and here is the link to the pattern to the hat http//

Zeemer I'm also in love with this dress pattern and matching hat, the pattern says it is advanced though so I think it is going to be a little too much for me. Have you attempted this pattern yet and do you have pictures if you have!?
