Retro Summer Dress is very appropriate for the coming summer months in my part of the world. This is a very pleasant sight to see in summer and actually a very comfortable summer wear. Would look great in a brighter color as well.

I love retro and vintage and boho. I was a little disappointed that there is no picture showing up on this page and that I have to go to the bloggers site to see if I would be interested in this dress, but that didnt last too long because I usually visit all the blogs anyway. It would have saved me a little time in this case though as I had already found this treasure a while back.

Hi Hippie Chick, We transferred templates, and it's causing some images to not display properly. Please bear with us as we work to get the images back up. :) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

Nana never wore a dress like this. And looking through the dress patterns there are actually very few for adults.

It is one thing to start a small project but I have always been afraid of starting a larger project such as a sweater or a dress! I have been contemplating on trying one or the other. I just love the way this one looks on the model, however I have a few more lumps and bumps but I may give it a whirl.

Clicked the link to get the instructions for this pretty dress and see that it takes me to DROPS Design patterns. I love their patterns. They are always so very well illustrated and complete with in depth instructions and pictures. Saving or printing a pattern from their site has always been very easy and so far I have not had any issues with their projects.

This Retro Summer Dress is so beautiful I so want to make it. I have had this pattern in my saved box for over a year now. I think after reading and re-reading this pattern that it will come out nicely. I need to buy the yarn and just give in and make it. I just hope it doesn't take years to make due to the length of the dress. Has anyone made this beautiful dress? I would hate to start it to find out it doesn't work out. Thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I love this! Unfortunately I am not at all confident that I would be able to pull it off (making it successfully I mean, I would be happy to wear it!). Has anyone ever done a dress project? Was the dress heavy to wear? Thanks!

That's really great cool summer dress with bright colors and crochet pattern. http//
