Special Day Crochet Dresses for girls
Two beautiful lace dresses for any special spring or summer event- confirmation or first communion, bridesmaid, wedding or just a party.
Simple, but very effective and bound to make any little girl feel very dressed up.
Quick and easy to make, they are worked in a synthetic yarn, which would be lighter and warmer in wear. (Cotton would look fabulous, but be heavier to wear.)
The one on the right has a solid bodice and the skirt is worked downwards from the waist, but separately from it; so useful for altering length on both, or adding to later as she grows. The one on the left is worked up from hem- but would also make a pretty tunic over trousers if it gets too short (or even just because it looks nice that way too!)
You could also use the photo as a great image for a communion card, or gift tag for the finished dress- so I have photo shopped the image on the PDF into 2 separate girls as well, in case you want them!
Size 26-30 inch chest
Length from shoulder 23.5- 27.5 inches
