Apron Dress



     This pretty dress is for the Dress-Me Doll. It is very simple to make; and just by changing colors you could create an entire closet full of dresses for your Doll.



Supplies:
     5.50 mm crochet hook
     Lavender worsted weight weight yarn
     Soft White worsted weight yarn
     * colors are based on Red Heart Super Saver yarn
     scissors
     yarn needle

Abbreviations Used:
     ch --- chain
     sc --- single-crochet
     st/sts --- stitch/stitches
     sk --- skip
     slp st --- slip stitch
     trc --- triple-crochet

Notes:
     --- I used a Lavender and Soft White to create a spring-time dress; but the color choices and combinations are endless.
