Beach wedding crochet dress – PATTERN

Initially I wanted to lengthen the skirt in this dress and wear as a wedding gown for my 2nd marriage. Alas, already the weight of that knee length dress was 700 gr /24.6 oz, so wearing even heavier maxi dress in summer will be a terrible ordeal : ). I imagine American actors from Hitchcock movies wearing dark suits, vests and hats … in Morocco (The Man Who Knew Too Much). Really painful to watch them : ). Unless they have shot the movie in a studio : ).

So I’ve decided to crochet something with thinner cotton and finished such a beach wedding dress:

The length of the dress is 152 cm (60’’), it weights 590 gr/20.8 oz for size S/M. Calculated weight for size M/L is 650 gr/22.9 oz. The skirt length can be adjusted as you go, the skirt pattern is quite easy to remember.

I changed turquoise and white underdresses since they were easy to style for both a day and evening look and my arms were covered with a subtle veil. Quite feminine … if a bride is over 40 and still in a good shape :).

I started making this pattern when it appeared on Free People website. However, I think it is better to publish it for those who missed purchasing it and would like to crochet the one of their own.

Love the look of this top but hate breaking the yarn after completing each motif? Me too! For this top additional photo-tutorial is included explaining how to crochet such round motifs without cutting off the yarn and how you can finish the loop of square motifs in each sleeve without hiding lots of ends. After grasping this NO-YARN-BREAKING concept you will be able to crochet all motif-garments without doing any harm to yarn skeins and saving your time 🙂

PATTERN for the cropped crochet top is available on Etsy and in my shop:

You will receive:

► detailed tutorial in ENGLISH with charted and written explanations for crocheting every row (in case you are not used to work with the crochet charts);

► HQ diagrams;

►  photo-tutorial for working such round motifs without cutting off the yarn and making the loop of square motifs in each sleeve without hiding lots of ends.

This crochet top pattern is provided for original size S (shown in photos) with bust circumference 91 cm = 36’’. I have included suggestions on how big should be your gauge if you like to crochet this top for sizes

XS with bust circumference 86 cm = 34’’;

M with bust circumference 96 cm = 38’’;

L with bust circumference 101 cm = 40’’.

For crocheting this top for sizes M and L you will need to use suggested thicker yarn and a bigger hook. In size L the width of each round motif will be just 1 cm (0.4”) larger than in the original top of size S.

For making this top for size XS you will need to use suggested thinner yarn and a smaller hook.

P.S. Recently I came upon this chart for SIMILAR looking vintage motifs:  Recently I came upon this chart for SIMILAR looking vintage motifs, though none of these rows corresponds with rows in top shown in the cover photos. I've also noticed that some not reliable pattern-shops recopy written instructions for doilies published in vintage crochet magazines and started selling patterns promising you the same crochet top. Come along after you have received complete refund from them because such patterns show how to make similar looking doilies but offer vague and not tested connections between motifs in sleeves so that you will need to find your own way of arranging everything into the ORIGINAL crochet top shown in the cover photos. , though none of these rows corresponds with rows in top shown in the cover photos.
