Crochet Dress – Little Miss Ruffles
This crochet dress was based off my Little Miss Lady Jane dress, I got the idea to add sashay ruffles to it instead of yarn ruffles.
This crochet dress would be super cute if you were to make a matching hat to go with it. There is a free beanie pattern HERE or you can add my lady bella bonnet pattern to match, for the bonnet pattern click HERE

Little Girls size 3/4
- fpsc – Front Post Single Crochet.
- fpdc – Front Post Double Crochet
- cl st – Cluster Stitch, 3 dc in same sp.
- ss – Slip Stitch
- Beginning ch 3 counts as first dc of row. Only turn work when specified.
- When first dc of row is made, I put my hoop through the last loop and same space as ch3. The last dc that joins the beg ch3 is also done through the same space. (Image 1 below) It creates a ribbing down the center back of the dress.
~I worked ch up 2 instead of a ch 3 for the first 5 rows, if you’d like to know more about ch up 2, check out my crochet resources page on my blog HERE.
- Caron Simply Soft Yarn – You will need a 6oz ball & a 3 oz ball
- Red Heart Boutique-sashay Yarn – 1 ball
4 dc = 1 inch (Using Caron Simply Soft & a US I9/5.50mm hook)
Using 2 more stitch markers, with work facing you like in the picture above, the star marks your center cl st, **count 4 cl st’s to the RIGHT and place marker in center st of cluster, count 8 more cl st’s to the right and join it’s center st with the same stitch marker. Now follow from ** but count to the LEFT of the star.
If you would like a photo tutorial of how to add sashay ruffles there is one available on my ruffle skirt, to get to the tutorial click HERE.
**Using a US J10/6.00mm hook..
To start insert your hook from bottom of the skirt towards the top into one of the ch1 spaces created by row 31 (sc, ch1 row) , then take your sashay yarn and fold over the end about 3 working spaces long.
Insert your hook into the first working space threw both layers as shown below then draw up a loop, insert hook into the 3rd working space of your sashay yarn.
Draw up a loop, this is your first sl st.
Insert your hook into your next ch1 sp, insert hook into 3rd working space and draw up a loop, this is your second sl st.
Continue working in each ch1 sp around and working in the 3rd working space of your sashay yarn.
When you’ve finished the last sl st of the rnd, insert your hook under the post of the next dc, insert hook into 3rd working space of your sashay yarn and draw up a loop, this will create a sl st around the dc post.
Now you can work in the ch1 spaces of the next row. Continue working until you finish the length of the dress.
To finish off you will need some sewing thread and needle, weave needle along the unfinished edge of the sashay end and tie a knot attaching it into your dress, you can do this at the beginning of the sashay yarn to hide the unfinished edge.
To complete your crochet dress you could add a rosette to the back side. For the rosette pattern click HERE
