Doily Dress

 I saw a wedding doily dress on Google image gallery and I loved it.  I thought about making a doily dress. The dress that I saw was made with different patterns of doilies, all in different sizes. I decided to make all the doilies using the same doily pattern. I really had fun making doilies; I pinned them on a dress and joined them together with a mesh stitch, working all around the doily. I did the same technique with my Irish crochet dress.
I found a mini doily pattern that I really like. You can find this pattern Here
I decided to join the mini doilies on the bodice of the dress and the larger doilies for the skirt. To make the doily larger for the skirt , I just repeated 4 rows from the pattern.

Join doilies with mesh stitch.
Join the the back to the front of the dress.

Here is the dress with a red lining underneath--perfect for Valentine's Day.

I crocheted buttons for the back of the dress. Check my other post for how to crochet buttons.

 ~Have a wonderful day full of beautiful things~
