Making Another Doily Dress

After making my first doily dress, I could not stop thinking about making another dress. My grandmother gifted me the ultimate doily book, I love it so much. I started making doilies. For the bodice of the dress I used a pattern that I worked before. I wanted a circular skirt on this dress, let me share with you how I made it.

After I finished the bodice of the dress, I made ten small doilies. I joined the doilies around the edge of the bodice with a net stitch.

You can find the Heart doily pattern Here and the Small Flower doily Here
After joining all the mini doilies, I worked a shell stitch around the small doily, about 8 rows. This works as a separation for the large doily. I think that making a skirt out of doilies will look just beautiful. I used 10 small doilies and 9 large doilies for the skirt.

 All finished. I was so happy.

 I used a crinoline under the dress.

 The back of the dress.

 I made a crochet belt for my dress. I really like it.

~Have a beautiful day and may God bless you always ~

This is beautiful and you are extremely talented. One day I will take on the task of making a dress, perhaps when I have more time. A friend gifted me a huge lot of crochet thread that belonged to her now deceased mother - her mother made doilies and other types of crochet lace. I have been trying to figure out what to make with it all and this post is very inspirational! I am thinking around Christmas time when I have a few weeks off from school I will be able to start something like this - thank you so much for sharing and putting this post together! ~Amanda

I have wanted to make one of these for years! I know how to crochet and have made many blankets, doilies, snowflakes etc but I don't know how to make clothes. Any ideas of how I could learn to make what you just made?
