Originally didn’t really like how this bear turned out (fuzzy yarn made it look kinda worn, also looked kinda naked), but thanks to Dee’s idea of a dress, I’m much happier with it now :-).

So incredibly sweet and the dress totally completed her. It’s funny how clothes can make a girl feel and look so put together. Great job!

I wanted to make a little doll’s dress using a crochet pattern but wanted something fairly simple. This little dress is adorable. Do you have the pattern you might share?
Thanks for considering this.

I’m afraid I don’t have a pattern for this, but it’s really easy to make.
Starting from the top down, work in circles by:
1) Chain the length you’d like the starting circle (top part of the dress to be) and join
2) Single or double crochet until you have the length you want the top to be
3) Increase for the skirt
4) Halter at top of skirt is added at end to hold dress up
Again starting from the top down, work in rows by:
1) Chain the length you’d like the width of the top of the cape to be
2) Single or double crochet back through chain, increasing at ends to give it the cape shape.
3) remember to leave long ends so that you chan chain the clasp and button hole.
Hope that helps.
