This pattern is made for beginners!  There is a basic skill level required to make.

If you don’t understand any technical crochet words, don’t worry I got you cover!

Here is a video titled ‘free crochet class on craftsy‘ and a free pdf file titled ‘the beginner’s guide to crochet‘. These will explain a lot for you.

Finished Size Approximately:

 This crochet dress is made in size small . the other sizes are easy to adjust by  just add more chain to the foundation chain to make it bigger. see pattern below.

For me the model wearing this piece, I am 4’9 feet tall.

Top part Make 2 pieces

Front and back panel.

of one rectangle.

-9 inches long

-15 inches wide

Pick up crochet hook size 4 mm and Start of by making a slip knot Then make 54+2= 56 chains  for size small  (foundation chain multiple of 3+2).

( size M 63+2 chain) ( size L 81+2 chain) , ( size XL 93+2 chain) and ( size 2XL 114+2 chain).

After you got the foundation chain then make sc in each chain across, turn and start row1 of granny stitch.

Row 1:  ch2, then make 1dc in the same stitch * skip 2 stitches, then work 3dc in next stitch*   repeat * to * across until end of the row until you will have 3 stitch remain, skip 2 st, 2dc in the last stitch, ch2 turn.

Row2. now you will work 3dc  in each  space ( between double crochet group ) across until end of the row, then dc in the last stitch,  turn.

Repeat row 3 until  you get around 9 inches long. ( for small size)

Then we are going to make a lace at the top of rectangle.

Row1. By  ch2 turn, then * dc,ch1,sk1 then dc in next st* repeat until the end of the row , ch2 turn.

Row2.  *dc in each chain space and ch1 in between * repeat until the end of the row, ch2 turn.

Row3-4. repeat row2.

After you got a rectangle now we are going to make a shoulder.

Place stitch marker like in the pic above for open neck 8 inches.

Then join new yarn at the end point then  ch2 and dc in each chain space and ch1 in between back and forward for 2 row.

repeat make the shoulder for the other side.

Now after we finished the first piece of front panel , we will repeat the same process for the second pieces.

After we have 2 piece of front panel and back panel.

We are going to assemble the top part of the  mini dress.

see pic below.

After we finished assemble the top part of mini dress we will move on to make the skirt section of mini dress.

Skirt section.

make sc in each stitch around to create the circle.

Then we will start on  the first section of the skirt.

Round1. *1dc in next st ,ch1,sk1 and make 1dc in the next st*  repeat this* to* until the end of the round.

Round2. * dc in each chain space and ch1 in between* repeat* to * around.

Round3. * dc in each chain space and ch1 in between* repeat* to * around.

Round 3.1   make sc in each stitch around.

Round4. * 2dc in next st, 1dc in next* repeat* to * around.

Round5-11, we will start to make granny stitch.

After you finished the first section of the skirt done it will look like this.

Now we will move on the second section of the skirt by repeat the same process of the first section of the skirt.

From row 1-4 for lace and row 5-11 ( granny stitch) for the length of the skirt if you want to make a skirt longer , we can do that by  add more row of the granny stitch for example  row 5-15, or r0w 5-20.

After you got the desire length then you will repeat row 1-4 again for more lacey stuff to the skirt.

All done!
