Baby Frock




























This is adorable shell stitch frock/dress. It’s made especially for the spring or summer season. It s very light and comfortable for the little girls and babies. I really love to see the baby frocks and crochet baby dress when they wear. I also love to crochet the full ruffle skirts; I always want to share my new design whenever I adjust some new in my design. I made a sun hat/summer hat and a headband to match the frock to the same pattern; I design a rose flower in my own technique.  I think you like and enjoy this shell stitch baby set.



It is a sleeveless baby frock; I used the shell stitch and v stitch in this frock. This is an easy stitch to crocheting any designs.i made this for the 12 months to 24 months little girls. In this frock I adjust some new, it is starting to the beginning chains and making the bodice, and working down to the top. When it’s reach to the armhole section, miss or skip some stitches for the armhole and then making the neck part and complete the bodice, Make both front and back parts to the same, after that working into the skirt.make some Flower design. 

In the skirt I made a special ruffle in the ending, I made first time crocheted the ruffle in the skirt. I think you like and appreciate me about some new ideas in my pattern. Enjoy the dress and you must try to crochet it.you also like the other dress pattern.
