IMG_3605_medium2

Gauge: 4 rows of 5 sc=1”x1”

Tools: 4.5mm crochet hook, tapestry needle, scissors

Skill Level: Experienced

Sizing: 

XXXS ( XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL)

Bust, Waist, Hip Measurements (Before Stretch): 28 (29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34)”

Sizing Notes:

This dress is made with negative ease (it’s meant to be very fitted).

The bamboo yarn gives it a very structured feel. If you want

something stretchier I would recommend using a cotton/acrylic

blend yarn. Also, if you want a little more room in the hip area,

switch to a 5.0mm crochet hook for the skirt.

Size Pictured: XXXS (Measures approx. 28 inches across Bust, Waist,

and Hips: stretches to fit over model’s measurements below. The

garment should stretch 5-7 inches over body for bodycon fit. Each

size increase adds about one inch to Bust, Waist, and Hips.)
