5 Beautiful Crochet Dresses for Little Ladies- Free patterns

There are people who are into bags and others who are into shoes. I on the other hand have always had a fondness for dresses. So I was overjoyed when I learned I was expecting a baby girl. I began imagining all the pretty garments I would dress her in. My desire to see my little one wear something I had made with my own two hands lead me to stumble upon some online gems.

The wonderful thing about crocheting pint-sized dresses is the fact that they work up so much faster than an adult-sized dress. The satisfaction is almost instant. All of these patterns have been tried and tested by yours truly. Whether you’re a novice or a veteran, I hope you find something here that inspires you to create that special dress for a little girl you may know.

1. Cascade Pineapple Baby Dress by crochetkim.com – Skill : Intermediate

A sweet number by Kim Guzman. The pineapple pattern is a staple when it comes to crochet. Also ideal for the Philippine heat. Why am I suddenly craving for a yellow tropical fruit?

2. Shell Stitch Dress by Woolly wonders – Skill: Easy

Ellie in Shell Stitch Dress

If you’re more of a visual learner, then definitely subscribe to Wooly Wonders in youtube. She explains stitches in a very clear manner and her voice is as adorable as the things she crochets.

3. Sally’s Summer Sundress by The Lavender Chair – Skill: Advanced

The Lavender Chair has quite a selection of pretty dresses, but this one stood out to me the most. I was just itching to make this lovely dress come to life. I can’t wait to see my daughter wear this say on her 2nd birthday perhaps?

4. Chevron Tulip Baby Dress by crochetkim.com – Skill: Intermediate

Another complex but fun piece by Kim Guzman. Every row feels like an adventure because repetitions are few and far between. I crocheted this piece a little more loosely for a more drapey effect.

4. Baby Sundress by the Knitting Scientist – Skill: Easy

This dress is simple but genius. Fits snuggly on the torso and flares out as it descends. I would recommend it to any newbie who would like to make their first little girl dress. Most of the stitches are worked in the back loops only resulting in a super stretchy piece. And how darling is that scalloped finish and laced spaghetti strap? I wouldn’t mind having a grown up version in my closet.

Honestly I am amazed at the plethora of great free patterns online. Paid patterns can be awesome too, but there is a risk of the unknown (It might be a badly written pattern- Yikes!) and trust me I’ve been there.

So I hope you enjoyed my little fashion show. Which one is your favorite in the list?
