Josephine Dress Crochet Pattern
The stunning Josephine Dress is here! The timeless design gives me such joy. This is the perfect dress to make as an heirloom for generations to come. The dress is worked from the top down using hdc stitches and a varied puff stitch. The skirt uses a beautiful 5 dc shell stitch which you will be able to memorise in a couple of rows, and then listen to your favourite audio book or watch your favourite show. The little puff sleeves are made by half double crocheting two stitches together around each sleeve at the very end. The colour combinations are endless or just use a solid colour like me. Have a wonderful time crocheting The Josephine Dress!
