Flower Bridesmaid Dress - Free Crochet Pattern

This post includes affiliate links - Please see my Privacy Policy for more info.

Hello! Today's Wool and Stitch pattern is this beautiful crochet bridesmaid dress for the little ones called 'Flower Bridesmaid Dress' it's such a cute little dress and so fun and easy to make. I wanted to design a simple crochet bridesmaid dress that could easily be adjusted mainly in the length, as you can see in the pictures this pattern goes to the knee but you could easily adjust it calf length of even to floor length. 




The dress is basically made up of two squares for the bodice and sewn together in the right places and then the skirt is crocheted on to the bodice after, once you have decided your length and you are happy with it you can then fasten off and move on to the arms and neck and then you can crochet the simple easy flowers and attach those to the dress wherever you like, i placed mine on the front seam of the bodice and the skirt to hide the seam. Cute right?!
