Crocheted Princess Dress Set

This crocheted baby dress is in size 0-6 months and was made using Caron Simply Soft 100% acrylic yarn, crystal buttons, crystal studs, shimmering tulle and ribbon.

The dress is machine washable on the gentle cycle and laid flat to dry. Cost of this set is $95.00

if you would like to purchase this set send me an email to LeahsCards@Live.com and I will send you the PayPal Invoice. Once payment is received your beautiful set will be shipped out priority mail.

The original pattern for the dress  was created by Crystal Doedtman of the Bag-O-Day Crochet as a Christening Gown so I made a different version of the original and adjusted it to be a shorter special occasions dress. It is a simple pattern that can be instrumental in creating several other dresses just by using a different stitch. I love the fullness and the beautiful softness of the dress. I changed the bottom edging and made some other small changes to get the look and shape I wanted. The shimmering tulle is soft but I use a baby slip under it so that the tulle and buttons don’t touch the babies skin.

I love this elegant baby dress and it would be a great dress for those precious baby pictures and babies first trip to Church. If you would like to purchase this dress please contact me at LeahsCards@live.com I have one currently available for purchase. The pattern can be purchased at Crystal’s Etsy Shop, https://www.etsy.com/listing/473244513/crochet-christening-gown-princess-dress?ref=shop_home_active_1 and she does a complete YouTube tutorial on how to make the Princess Gown.

Pretty In Pink Cardigan Baby Set

I recreated the booties from trial and error after finding out the pattern size was to large and I wanted to do mine for a newborn. This project was not hard at all and crocheted up quickly. The directions were a little qwerky, it may have been poorly translated from another language but I was able to figure it out and I love the results. Hope you like it!

I will post the link shortly.
