Shell stitch crochet summer dress
This adorable dress is crocheted in such a way that is could be easily adjusted for different sizes. It is made from top down, which means you can make it as long or as short as you desire. A clever trick to making straps also allows you to lengthen them later as your child grows. This dress literally can grow with your child.
The pattern is fully customisable, meaning that even gauge is not that important. If you choose different yarn, just make the beginning chain long enough to fit around your model's chest, and keep trying it on as you crochet to define length of the top and skirt.
While crocheting with thin yarn will take you some time, the pattern is simple even for beginners, and the results are well worth the wait.
