WHAT IS IT?
A crochet pattern for a romantic, reversible, wrap dress with puff sleeves and waistband. The dress has a classic and flattering shape. The dress can be made in a long version or short version, with big/small/long sleeves and with or without ruffles. This enables you to get creative to make a unique dress! The dress is slightly see-through especially on top – as it’s tighter on top than on the bottom it’s a good idea to wear something underneath, otherwise you can avoid using light colors or use a smaller hook or thicker yarn (the gauge will then be different!)
You will receive a written pattern along with a 20 min video tutorial (English voiceover) showing the whole process from beginning to end. This makes it perfect for beginners as well.

IF YOU WANT TO CROCHET AFTER MEASUREMENTS
The pattern also has the option for measuring along – this way you can measure your own body and then transfer that to the pattern, which means you can use any hook, yarn and stitch that you want and therefore make the dress in any size.
You can also just follow the S(M)L with the pattern, so if your measurements fits the M you have to follow the middle number throughout the pattern, if it says 1(2)3 you make 2.
If you dont want to follow measurements but are bigger/smaller than the measurement above, you can easily add/subtract stitches and rows from the pattern by looking at the difference between the other sizes.
