A crochet baby dress, designed by me?! Somebody pinch me!
It’s here! A crochet baby dress that I designed all on my own! When I started working on this design, I didn’t know if it would end up fitting an actual baby. The first version I made was something that would probably only fit a doll. I persisted though because I had promised myself at the beginning of the year to create more girl designs.
I looked at it and tried to justify the size and told myself that I could make it work! Then, after a whole lot of convincing myself, I realized that if I am going to get serious about designing I need to start looking at tech editing as an investment rather than an expense! I asked around and everyone recommended Emily from Fiat Fiber Arts. I reached out to her and started discussing the design. She helped me figure out the math and become more confident in my designing process. She is an amazing tech editor and mentor! I absolutely loved working with her!
Even after figuring out the math, I was praying really hard that the dress would actually fit the respective sizes in the pattern. This is where my testers came and blew me away. They sent me pictures of the dress on AN ACTUAL BABY! This is when things got real!
So today, I present to you, my Tunisian Pixie Dress! It can be made in sizes 0-3 months all the way up to 18-24 months (16” to 20” chest circumference). This pattern is for a Tunisian crochet baby dress that is worked flat and seamed. Video and photo tutorials are included as well as a schematic and a full sizing chart along with written instructions. This is a super cute pattern for a baby shower gift or for a special occasion such as birthday party, wedding, or a newborn photoshoot! You can now find it on Etsy and Ravelry.
