Lacy Clover Infant Dress – Free Pattern

The Lacy Clover Infant Dress came about because I thought it would be a good combination with the Lacy Clover Bonnet and because a friend needed a baby gift for a fellow designer. It works up quick and with optional lace edging can be a bit frilly or not depending on your taste. I thoroughly enjoyed making this dress and plan on grading it down and up to other sizes as well. For now, I hope that you enjoy the Lacy Clover Infant Dress in 0-3 months. This is my contribution to Cre8tion Crochet.

 

Here is what my testers had to say about this dress:

Lovely baby dress that works up fast with just the right amount of lace. – Lois, Foreverett Crocheting for Hope

 

Another fantabulous pattern by Leah!!! Super easy to follow with great stitch descriptions and instructions that make it easy for even the most inexperienced crocheter to follow. The unique stitch pattern gives this adorable little dress a lot of texture without weighing it down. It is the perfect “take home” outfit when paired with the Lacy Clover Bonnet for every little princess. – Hollie
