Stitches:

fpsc – Front Post Single Crochet.
fpdc - Front Post Double Crochet
cl st – Cluster Stitch, 3 dc in same sp.
ss – Slip Stitch

Notes:

~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.

    Would it be easy to make this in a bigger size? I need a size 6 to, I am a pattern follower and am not sure how to adjust patterns. any help or suggestions are appreciated! Thank you!

      If you are buying on the roll (4inch wide), you will need approximately 25 yards of each colour. I usually buy from the bolt because no one around here sells on the roll, I usually buy about 1.5 yards of 60″ tulle of each colour and cut it in half so it’s 30″ then cut 4″ wide strips.
