It’s light, comfy, and a fun summer dress! Trust me when I say, you won’t get too hot in this crocheted dress. Not only is the yarn a cotton/acrylic blend, but the entire dress (size small) is just 200 g of yarn! Whattttt??

I used Lion Brand Ombre Life in Sunrise for this project (you can find this yarn HERE). I am IN LOVE with the color changes in this yarn! They are so seamless and the ombre effect is perfection. For a size small I used 2 skeins, you’ll need 3 for a M, or L. If you’re using 3 skeins or Ombre Life, I would deconstruct the last skein so that when you add it it to your dress you’re still working with the same color. This will keep up the ombre effect.

Fasten off, leave a (really) long end for sewing.

Lay both pieces on top of each other. (I lay them so I have a long end for sewing on each shoulder and each side)

Using the long starting end, sew the shoulders closed with a whip stitch across 3 stitches on each side.

Using the long ends, sew the sides closed with a whip stitch. I sewed from the bottom up to the end of the bust increases (approx. row 18)

Fasten off, weave in your ends.

And that’s it!! I hope you love this flirty summer dress!
