Okay, I've never crocheted actual clothing before, but i -so- want to.  I found this:
pattern and i love it!  my question is, do ya'll think it will be too hard?  Also, do you think i can get away with using caron simply soft or something?  i really cant afford nice yarns, and, if it doesnt turn out too well, then... it's not big deal, right?

I think "hard" is relative. To me that pattern wouldn't be too hard, but to you it may be totally different depending on your skill level. One thing I regret is that I always told myself a pattern was too hard and therefore never even attempted it. I think if you want to, you shouold give it a go.

As for simply soft.. It looks like youd be able to, but I'd crochet up a swatch with it to match the gauge of the pattern to see if theres a size difference. It looks like they're the same weight though.

I'm no longer a moderator, but I will always love June 2005 - October 2008

Don't think you can't afford nice yarns!  There are plenty of places with nice yarns for those of us on a budget.  My favorite is www.knitpicks.com

The dress doesn't look hard at all.  I say give it a try!  Even if it doesn't work out, you can save the yarn for something else.

I agree - this doesn't look too hard - give it a try!

Needing an on-line break ... I'll be back later in 2018.

thanks you guys!  you've really given me the gumption to give this a try.  i looked at knitpicks and their value wool is cheaper than my local craft store!  and their shipping is -so- reasonable!  thank you for sharing this website.

You never know until you try.. worst comes to worst, it is too tough .. work on something else and save the pattern for later when you have more experience working with crocheting clothes
Best of Luck!
