Style 1: Sunburst Design Crochet Dress
Hand crochet top yoke with small squared sunburst design has slightly extended cap sleeves. 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. Back opening has 2 wooden button closure.
This is a triple crochet pattern that is very challenging to crochet. A lot of thought and work went into the making of this dress! 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 appear as a greenish (teal blue) tint.
This beautifully made dress looks fantastic undyed, too!
