  1. Sharon Says:

    This is a great pattern. Thank you very much for sharing.

  2. Cherie Says:

    The dress is lovely. Thank you !!


  3. Thank you so much, so glad you’re able to use it!

  4. Cheryl Says:

    I love this dress. I got as far as the tie and am lost! But I dont want to give up yet. Can you explain how to crochet 14 sc over the tie? Thanks so much for sharing and for your help.


  5. I’ll try. When you start the waist, hold the tie in your hands and work your sc around the tie string. You are actually covering the whole tie with the sc’s. Once you get the sc around the string, slide them to the center of the tie and continue on. I have sent you an email with a picture. Hope this helps.

  6. Cheryl Says:

    Thanks. After I complete row 1 I tie the ends together and that is my tie to go on? I think I have it! I feel so stupid. I have been crocheting for 40+ years! Must be the aging process. Thanks again. I found the cutest sail boat buttons for the dress!!

  7. Carly Says:

    Hi!, What do you mean by “holding last loop back?”

    and I am confused by the part telling you how to do the tie, it says “chain 118″ but then it says to chain it again? I’m confused… it sounds like a really long chain, but the second round says to work 14 singles over the tie, but the tie seems to be over 200 stitches… I don’t know what it means?

    This is so cute, and I would love to try to make it, thank yoU!


  8. Carly:
    I sent you an email with further directions. I included a picture…..hope this helps.
    Carol

  9. Carly Says:

    WOW Thanks that was so sweet! I just made a different one of your patterns and it came out ADORABLE! and also purchased a hat pattern… I will try to take pictures later!

    Thanks!


  10. Awesome! Most of all…..have fun with them! My granddaughters got me addicted to these little dolls!

  11. Kathy Says:

    Would you please send me the additional instructions with the picture also. I think the dress is adorable. I finished the hat. Thanks for sharing the pattern.


  12. Kathy:
    An email is on the way. Plsease don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions. Have fun!

  13. Carole Says:

    Hello
    As with a few others, I am confused with the tie concept. I have been crocheting for 40 years and am uncertain what to do. Any help would be very much appreciated. The dress is very cute and my grand-daughter will love it. I hope it fits a cabbage patch doll. Thank you.


  14. I sent the information via email……if you change to yarn and perhaps a G or H hook……it may fit a Cabbage Patch.

  15. RuthSmith Says:

    Wow, I’ve been crocheting a long time and the Tie instructions definitely threw me for a loop. I got the tie part figured out, and think I now understand the 14 sc over the tie part ( after reading about), I would appreciate seeing the instructions you are mentioning. Thanks for sharing these patterns. My daughter and granddaughter will be thrilled.


  16. Rnd. 1: (Tie) color 1, ch 3, *holding last loop back of each dc, work 5 dc in 3rd ch from hook*, ch 118, repeat from asterisks once, fasten off.

    Once you start the tie with the ch 3, you will actually be making a popcorn st when you work the 5 dc in the 3rd ch from the hook. This is done by starting the first dc as always, but do not pull the thread thru the second loop, leave it on the hook and staqrt you second dc, go thru the first loop and leave the second loop on the hook…….do this until you have 5 dc, then go yarn over and pull thru all loops on the hook. Chain 118, then repeat the popcorn stich on the end of the chain.
    This creates little nubs at the ends of the tie.

    Rnd. 2: (Dress) color 2, work 14 sc over tie, ch 1, turn.

    This rnd. is not worked in the chains, but over them. It’s much faster and will allow the tie to”slide” a bit and can be centered easily.

    Be-u-ti-full! my style completly!

  18. Emma Says:

    Hello I have a question……
    I have a daughter who is pretty good at crocheting. she loves to make dresses for her american girl doll.
    Do you have any simple doll dress crochet patterns?


  19. Emma:
    That’s great! The Sundress pattern is pretty easy…..the Western set vest. The Winter Accessories and the Scrapghan, though not dresses are also pretty easy. I have one more, though not listed, I will send via email…

    been crocheting for years but cannot figure it out. Thank you.

    Carol

  29. Connie Boschert Says:

    The way my computer is set up for receiving attachments yours
    is blocked by the security setup. Is it possible to send me a
    photocopy of what is in the attachment. My address is 121
    Woodland Avenue,
    Fairmont, MN 56031
    I have used many of your patterns and just love them.


  30. I don’t have a printer……let me try to post the picture on the page forthe pattern……

  31. Connie Boschert Says:

    The light bulb came on so I am now crocheting this cute outfit.
    Thanks for responding to me so quickly.


  32. My pleasure, feel free to contact me any time!

  33. Connie Boschert Says:

    I am doing the hat. When you say to fold at the base and sc through
    the thickness, do you fold the base to the outside or the inside of the
    hat. I cannot tell by the picture if there is a ridge or what.

    Sorry to be a pest.


  34. Fold so that the “overlap” is on the outside…..it should look like a little sailors hat……fold it up towards the top of the hat and then sc around the bottom. Hope that helps……feel free to contact me anytime.
    Carol

  35. barbara Says:

    I am also having problems with the tie part. Where are you supposed to start the 14 sc?


  36. I sent you an email with more detail and a pic…..hope that helps.
    Carol


  37. can you please send me the email on this? love your patterns!!!! they are all so cute!


  38. Thanks…..it’s on the way.

  39. Ashlie Says:

    Could you email me further in depth instructions on the tie and the more advanced things too? I’ve only been crocheting for a year, I know most of the stuff but need a little more information. My husband is a sailor in the navy so I think this is adoreable! Thank you.
    Ashlie :)


  40. An email is on the way. Please thank your husband for me!
