My first crochet design for Ms. Fashionista – a crochet fashion doll tank dress based on her glamorous purple style.
Materials: ( I used )
2mm crochet hook
Cotton crochet thread: pink and purple
Note: I used chainless starting dc/tr for every first dc/tr of each round instead of ch 3/ch 4. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2/ch 3, dc/tr into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc/tr). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc/tr for every first dc/tr of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂
Special stitch used:
2dc- V stitch ( 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc into same stitch )
3tr- V stitch ( 3 tr, ch 2, 3 tr into same stitch )
Gauge: 8 double crochet stitches approximately 1 inch.
Dress: start with color A yarn, ch 40, sl into 1st chain to join.
R1: dc around, 40 sts, sl into 1st stitch to join
R2 to 5: same as R1
R6: change to color B yarn, sc around, 40 sts, sl into 1st stitch to join
R7: * dc, skip 1 st, 2dc-Vstitch into next st, skip 1 sts * repeat **10 times, sl into 1st stitch to join
R8: * fpdc, 2dc-Vstitch into next ch2-space * repeat** 10 times, sl into 1st stitch to join
R9 to 11: same as R8
R12: * fptr, 3tr-Vstitch into next ch2-space * repeat** 10 times, sl into 1st stitch to join
R13 and 14: same as R12 ( fasten off, weave in end )
Straps: Back to the top, using color B yarn
R1: from the 1st chain of R1, sc around, 40 sts, sl into 1st stitch to join

Repeat from R3 to 16 at other side to make the other strap.
