Wynnie Dress Crochet Pattern

Maker
1/8/2020

Hey everyone! I’m Ashlyn Herring the maker behind Wool and Flaxen. I live in the Florida Panhandle with my husband and two kids. I love the color yellow, movie theater popcorn, and Parks and Rec. I learned to crochet a few years ago watching YouTube videos and just making things up as I went along. I now run a crochet blog and specialize in patterns for little girls and more recently, designing pieces that incorporate basic sewing techniques.

I’ve made a series of dresses for my daughter using crochet bodices and fabric skirts. People always ask for tutorials and patterns for these pieces, but I’ve never been confident enough in my sewing skills to share publicly. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and share how to create this dress today!

Notes

Pattern is worked from the bottom up.

Part of this pattern is written in the round and then switches to rows, pay attention to this so you can create an opening in the back to attach a button.

You can go down a hook size for the foundation HDC if it’s a little too loose.

To create dress, measure a piece of fabric about double the width of the bottom of the chest plus ½ an inch, and cut. Cut length as long as you want the dress to be plus ¾ an inch.

Sew ¼ an inch from the top straight across and pull the thread to bunch the fabric until it measures equal to the chest plus ½ an inch.

With the right side of the fabric facing the wrong side of the crochet, pin into place. I like to cross two pins to create an ‘X’ so the crochet stitches don’t slide out of the pins. Sew fabric side down, leaving an opening in the back with ¼ an inch on each side of the opening.

Then turn the dress inside out and sew up the opening in the back at the ¼ an inch mark, then fold the bottom up at the ¼ an inch and sew around to create a hem.

For more detailed photos and tips on sewing crochet to fabric, I’ve created a guide over on my site.( https://woolandflaxen.com/how-to-sew-crochet-to-fabric/)

And there you have it! I’m so happy I got to share this pattern and sewing tutorial with you all! I hope you have the happiest new year and get to spend some more time in front of a sewing machine, I know I’m planning to. Keep an eye out this year for upcoming projects like this one.
