Hey Guy’s!

A while back I told you all about how I was planning on slowly posting almost all of my crochet patterns from the past two years to the blog as free patterns.

Well, today I have a surprise pattern for you all; The Jubilee Dress!

I wasn’t planning on posting this pattern to the blog for a while but I decided to go ahead and give you guy’s what you’ve all been asking for. The Jubilee Dress is a child’s pattern, the sizes range from 2T-8. This dress has a simple construction with GORGEOUS mesh detail.

The yarn I used for this design was of course Paintbox Yarns DK Cotton in Pistachio Green! This yarn is perfect because it gives this dress a lightweight feel and this yarn comes in SO MANY different colors.

As usual with my older patterns I don’t have any progress shots, so if you have any questions or need further help feel free to contact m

Let’s get into the pattern!

Notes:

Pattern is worked from the chest up, working the neck hole, then the back. You then will connect the front and back and begin working down the top in the round.

Size changes are shown throughout pattern in order of size. Example: (2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6-8)

Highlighting the row/stitch count of the size you are working is suggested before starting pattern.

Chain 5 counts as a stitch.

Step 1 - Lay top half of work flat. Place both sleeves on either side of top. Try to place them as centered as possible, a helpful way of doing this would be to take the center stitch of your sleeve and line it up to the very center of the top.

Step 2 - Using your prefered sewing method, seam each sleeve to the sides of work.

Step 3 - Fold work in half, seams facing out. Sew up the bottom of the top to the armpit and across end of sleeve.

Step 4 - Flip work right side out so seams are now on the inside of the top.

Continue on to the skirt of the pattern.

Place a stitch marker where you begin. The rest of this piece will be worked continuously around.

R1 - Attach yarn to one side of your work and HDC around the piece. Stitch Count - (80, 88, 96, 104, 116)

R2 - *HDC into next stitch, 2HDC in next, repeat from * around. Stitch Count - (120, 132, 144, 156, 177)

Continue working 1 HDC into each stitch around until you work measures approx. (17”, 19”, 20”, 22”, 24”) from the top of the shoulder down. Stitch Count - (120, 132, 144, 156, 177)

Once length is reached you will SC, *Ch2, Sk2, DC, repeat from * around for a total of TWO rows. SC around your work for ONE more row (remember to place 2 SC into each chain space) .

Fasten off.

Cleaning up your piece:

Attach your yarn to the neck hole opening and SC around the opening twice. Fasten off.

Bow:

Make a chain that is approx. (12”, 12”, 13” 13” 14”) long. Fasten off.

Weave the chain in and out of the neckline, spacing each weave 1” apart. Make sure to have both ends facing out once complete. Tie a bow to ruffle the neckline.

Weave in all ends.
