We’re going to make this beautiful dress. In this tutorial Alina is also showing how to cut the dress to the pattern because of course…she’s also a handy seamstress! If you don’t know how to sew, that’s OK, just buy a plain straight tunic or t-dress and apply the crochet flowers, either on it, directly in the shape you desire or on the pocket.

Let’s start!

Cut and sew the dress to the pattern. This pattern has a pocket on the dress, can be on either side. The flowers will be sewed on the pocket.

Start making the crochet flowers.

To make one flower follow these steps:

On your index finger, wrap the yarn 10 times:

Unwrap the yarn and make one single crochet, then chain 1, *wrap the yarn on the hook, make another single crochet without closing it*, repeat from * 4 times, single crochet through all 5 loops, chain 3, 1 single crochet to close off the petal.

Repeat the above steps for each petal until you have 5 petals.

Proceed with making all flowers in your chosen colors until you have enough to cover the pocket of the dress or if you don’t have a pocket, for the shape you desire.

Sew each flower onto the pocket and that’s it! You will have a personalized beautiful dress!
