Knitted, Crocheted and Sewn Dresses

The first step is knitting the top and making a crochet border. The second step is to sew the skirt and the ribbons. This dress is for a 1-2 years-old girl.

An old t-shirt was used to make the skirt and the ribbons. Look at this raspberry color!

The crochet borders are made of scallops (three double crochets).

There are three different textures: the knitted white yarn, the little squares on the cotton and the crocheted scallops unifying them.

This dress is for a 4-5 years-old girl.

Again, an old t-shirt was used for the skirt and the ribbons. You can see it was a twin to the raspberry t-shirt.

When crocheting the borders with a sweet-green yarn (the same I used for the Sweet Summer Scarf), a hole appeared at the armpit. (If you want to discover any mistakes you may have made, take a picture!)

I like this mix of colors. And, again, the various textures.

  1. They are beautiful. I can imagine making a lovely swirly skirt then adding a beautiful knitted and crocheted top. I am sure any little girl would love it too.

  2. This is the first time I’ve ever seen a garment made with kitting, crochet and a waffle weave t-shirt. The both look very nice France and I love the way the textures play together!

    • Thank you, Lara! I was inspired by the many little dresses we can see on Pinterest. They usually are knitted and sewn or crocheted and sewn. My first intention was to knit the top and then sew a skirt. But once they were knitted, I decided that the tops would look better with crocheted edges. The armhole edges were not straight enough to my taste. (Or to anyone’s taste, I’m sure…) 😉
