Red, White & Blue Crochet Dress

May 11, 2017

I made this Red, White & Blue Dress to celebrate the summer holidays. But I might make another one in oranges and yellows! Any color combo would be adorable, really.

The finished product measures approximately 21 inches long and 11 inches across under the arm. It fits my 7 year old, but has some stretch and could definitely fit larger.

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

Sew your three buttons along the opening in the back (I sewed them on the end of rows 2, 4, and 6). I used the space between the dc’s on the opposite side as button holes.

And you’re done! I hope you love this adorable dress.
