If you recognize the pattern source for this dress, please post it here!
This lovely dress was discovered by my good friend and crochet-guru, Ronnie, while she was sorting through some of her late mother’s things. Ronnie has two lovely granddaughters to crochet for (and I’m a bit jealous about that, I admit) and would love to learn the source of this pattern.
As far as is known, her mother did not crochet. There was no information along with the dress, no indication why it was saved for so many years. Neither Ronnie nor her sister has any recollection of having worn this lovely dress. It appears to me to be about a size 6-8. It is not in perfect shape as there are some areas of wear, a small hole, some worn threads.
Despite the years and the lack of information, everyone at the St. Louis Crochet Club meeting fell in love with this dress when it was displayed at our most recent meeting. Ronnie and the rest of us would love to be able to crochet a more modern version of the dress.
So, if you know anything about the dress, please help us out. It’s a beauty!
Note: This photo is a bit misleading. The shape of the dress is different than it appears here. It is narrower under the bodice and flares out nearer to the hemline creating almost a flounce.
