Crafting my way to oblivion

Sorry about the .com reference on my earlier photos! I'm being careful to share with this community as much as they've shared with me! To say thank you, I'd like to post this pattern.


I was home on a visit with my Mom when we lost power off and on for two weeks due to freak tornado weather. With no internet, phone (cell reception died long before my phone did), television or new books to read, I turned to crochet. I was looking for Barbie patterns, but came across a lot of outdated patterns that had Barbie's old measurements. So I took three patterns from my grandmother's old books and created this little number. Feel free to recreate. You're welcome to sell any items from the pattern, but please give credit back to The Crafty Ginger when you do. It's a basic dress, and I'm a tight stitcher so your mileage may vary. Let me know what you think!

Posted from my website:

This pattern is not to be used for resale. All content is original and TheCraftyGinger. If you run into any snags or have any suggestions, please feel free to leave them in comments.

Chain 47

Row 1: Sc in 46 across (46)

Row 2: Ch1 turn, sc in ea sc across (46)

Row 3: Ch1 turn, sc in next 18 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc, sc in next 6 sc, 2 sc in next 2 sc, sc in next 18 sc (50)

Row 5: Ch1 turn, sc in 54 sc across (54)

Row 6: Ch1 turn, sc in 54 sc across (54)

Row 7: Ch1 turn, sc in next 18 sc, (sc next 2 sc tog) twice, sc in next 10 sc, (sc next 2 sc tog) twice, sc in next 18 sc (50)

Row 8: Ch1 turn, sc in next 16 sc, (sc next 2 sc tog) twice, sc in next 10 sc, (sc next 2 sc tog) twice, sc in next 16 sc (46)

Row 11-14: Ch1 turn, sc in each sc across (42)

Row 15: Ch1 turn, sc in next 3 sc, sc next 2 sc tog, repeat until 2 sc remain, sc in last 2 sc (33)

Row 16-19: Ch1 turn, sc across (33)

Row 20: Ch1 turn, 2 sc in ea sc across (66)

Row 21: Ch1 turn, sc in ea sc across (66) *Note: at this point you can tie off and have a cute little halter. Sew velcro on the back and finish it up.

Row 22: *Ch 3 turn, sc in next sc, rep from * to end.

Row 23-27 *Ch 3 turn, sc in next 3 ch space, rep from * to end.

Row 28-29 *Ch 3 turn, sc in next 3 ch space, rep from * to end. Ch 3, sc attach to other 3 ch space, closing the skirt. Continue *ch 3, sc in next 3 ch space, around.

Row 30-End Continue pattern of *ch 3, sc in next 3 ch space until skirt reaches length desired. Tie off. And weave in strings.

To finish off the dress, sew velcro to the back.

What I would have done differently:

I would have made the dress a little longer. I also didnt have enough time to finish underclothes for the poor lady before I headed back to Alaska.

Keep crafting!

Thank you for the pattern.  It is a lovely dress short or long and could possibly even expand into a ball gown.
