An Versatile Crochet Dress Pattern

I stumbled upon this dress on Facebook. It does not come with a pattern but it has such an amazing vintage touch that makes me wanna make it both out of cotton for this fall and out of silk thread for this summer.

Yes, you can make it shorter and wear it with jeans, leggings, jeggings or a silk maxi skirt.

The pattern is based on some kind of double crochet shell ( scallop) structure and the increase, as I see it is done by simply increasing the number of shells.
I may mistake on reading this pattern but any coments or help on this matter are very welcome.

Do you like it? Would you try to make it? Can any of you give me a hint how to start the gauge?

and I hope I gave you an idea of what to wear with this summer's trend of colorful tights.

Why This Blog and My First Big Project - Baby Dress Free Pattern

This blog came to be out of my recent passion for crochet.
I am a new mom with a 6 months old beautiful baby girl and I became interested in crochet patterns when I was looking for a crochet baby dress for her.

I saw a lot of patterns, a lot of designs and who made them sold them at a too high price for my pocket.

Hence I became determined to make her a dress on my own and...I did :)

The tutorial by Anna Phelps on Youtube helped a lot

This is a pattern extremely easy to follow , Anna explains it amazingly easy to learn and surprise surprise !!! If I could learn to do it , you can learn to do it too :)
xoxo to all the new moms out there in love with the idea of crocheting a dress for their little gil.:)
Promise to post a picture of the dress once I am done.
