15 Beautiful Crochet Dress Patterns

I recently did a post featuring 15 beautiful free crochet dress patterns. Free patterns are terrific but it’s also great to buy patterns if you can. You often get higher-quality, more detailed designs plus you’re supporting the work of a dedicated crochet designer with your purchase. If you’re interested in buying a crochet dress pattern online, here are 15 terrific options to get you started:

1. Cinnamon Dress by Eleven Handmade

2. Striped Crochet Dress

15 Beautiful Free Crochet Dress Patterns for Women

People often ask me about the crochet dresses that I make for myself. I actually don’t work from patterns most of the time and my dresses are all patternless designs. That doesn’t work for everyone, though, so I thought I’d do a roundup of some of the best crochet dress patterns available. This week’s edition is all free crochet patterns and next week I’ll follow up with patterns that are worth paying to get.
