Free Chart for Summer Dress to Impress
This project started out as something I wanted to try inspired by Emy at Hectanooga.com and her video tutorial for a baby dress with fan shells pattern. To my luck I also found a Chinese pattern for a blouse of this kind and combining the two ideas it resulted an amazing looking result.
Obviously I was looking to make a dress for my teenage niece and I thought about simply increasing the number of stiches and go from there.
You can gues it took a few trials but finally here is the result.
Basically de top is tank top style made using double crochet stiches , V stitch and reversed V stitch ( google these stiches ...I did and found how to make them).
The bottom of the dress is basically made by increasing the fan part of the shells as seen below in the Chinese chart . Depending how wide you want it to be you can make more rows of one size and increase at every ten rows ( as I did).
The dress was made using a 3 ply ( medium) acrylic yarn (Coats) and with a 3 mm hook.
Since it looks so pretty I plan to make one in blue for myself ...maxi dress style since I don't have the type of legs this particular lenght requires. :)
