Stunning, Classic, Crochet Baby Girl Dress- Free Pattern!

Updated: Apr 9, 2020

Ahhhh! I am in LOVE with how this little dress turned out!

Simple, classic and beautiful in a light pearl gray and cream colored edging.

This pattern is a variation of my Rainbow Baby Dress which I also have listed as a free pattern on the blog!

In this pattern I added cap sleeves and a lace eyelet detail. So pretty!

I can't wait for little miss to wear this!
