Style 2: Strappy Top Lattice Crochet Dress
Hand crochet top yoke has squared lattice like design. Shoulder straps are secured with decorative wooden buttons. Crochet string tie at waistline has small wooden beads at tips that are tied off. Natural cotton muslin skirt is gathered into the waist. Turned hem at skirt bottom.
This is mostly a triple crochet stitch- almost a lattice like pattern. Neck and sleeves are embellished with a small scalloped crochet edge.
Warm natural colored beige cotton crochet yarn and muslin skirt takes Procion Fiber Reactive Dye beautifully in solid colors. Keep in mind that dyes are transparent. The natural coloring of this dress will combine with whatever color you dye it. So if you dye it a light shade of blue, the finished color result will as a greenish (teal blue) tint.
This beautifully made dress looks fantastic undyed, too!
