Anyone who has followed me for very long knows that adorable little baby dresses are my all-time favorites to crochet and design. Here’s a cute little ladybug baby dress I found on Ravelry from Sandy Furlough. So sweet.
Sandy has used Aunt Lydia’s size 3 thread for this project. It’s about sport weight or so and the dress is made in about size 12 months.

This design will require about an intermediate skill level. You will certainly want to understand garment construction. Like most designs like this, you just need to get through the bodice and then it’s smooth sailing.
The bodice starts at the top and works down in a square neckline. You work in unjoined rounds because there will be a button band in the back of the yoke. When increasing or decreasing stitches to change sizing, be sure to make the changes evenly in all sections: right and left back sections as well as the front and armhole areas. You wouldn’t want to add, for instance, only to the front and not to the back.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
