Crochet Enchanted sun dress

Crochet Enchanted sun dress

Like an iconic outfit for sunny days – a sun dress can be found in every girl’s wardrobe. This sleeveless and flared bottom crocheted dress is made by vibrant colored, self striping cotton yarn. I designed it with simple crochet stitches so most crocheters can give it a try xD

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch (counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/ round, so just choose your best technique ­čÖé

Special stitches used: 

V stitch: ( dc, ch1, dc ) into same stitch or space.

2dc- V stitch: ( 2dc, ch1, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.

This crochet Enchanted sun dress pattern fits size L ( chest size: 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Easy

Gauge: 12 double crochet stitches x 5 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )

    Just to be sure…. when we do the 2dc across that’s before and after the 2dc-V stitch, we’re making those 2 stitches in each stitch and not a 2dc Dec cluster stitch in each stitch, right?
    I hope that makes sense lol

    This dress is so pretty! I really like the design. It is very easy pattern. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent in designing this dress. I’m going to be making this dress very soon. I have been crocheting for 39 years and have never made anything for myself. This year I’m going to be making myself a few things. This is definitely one of the pieces I will be making.
