  3. Thanks Shelley! Yeah, seems I can never not be MamaBeth...LOL! I think I do have the dress pattern...somewhere in my pc files...I haven't crocheted much since I started teaching my 2nd year, I crocheted so many clothing the first year, I was really stressed out! But I did make 2 flower girl dresses for my daughters to wear at my SIL's wedding...you can see the pics on FB... Thanks for remembering me!
  4. Actually my name is yarndiva here on the 'Ville and Shelley was so nice enough to write to me on Facebook and let me know about someone interested in crochet/fabric dresses. Here's a boutique dress that's soo darling, I have knocked it off and made quite a few darling dresses of my own... http://www.ilovemybaby.org/entry/victoria-kids-spring-crocheted-dress-exquisite-workmanship/ Here's another one you can look and see if you can recreate: http://mytreasuredheirlooms.com/girls.htm The tutorial in hgtv is ok...but, if you really want a nicer looking bodice, I suggest you use the bodice pattern of these dresses: http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/BabyChild/LC1391+Sitting+Pretty.htm http://www.bhg.com/crafts/knitting/kidswear/floral-dress/ http://funkyhooker.blogspot.com/2006/04/toddler-sundress.html Patterns taken from: http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/directory/toddlers.php FABRIC SKIRT: 1-1/2 to 2 yards of fabric for normal "fluffiness" and 3 yards or more for "super fluffiness"...I would reserve the 3+ yards for special occassion dresses like for weddings, birthdays, etc... Clear as mud? Email me at yarn [dot] diva [at] yahoo [dot] com if you need more help.
  5. Oh wow, this CAL is still going strong! Great Job Lorena on FBB, it makes me want to make another one again!!
  6. If you are still stuck I will take more pictures of subsequent rows.
  7. So sorry about that,I already removed it, edited it (yet again) and added pictures of each row until row 4 so you can see how it progresses. don't give up, it's a fun pattern once you get going!!
  8. I just edited my pattern on my blog with the final (I hope) correct version. Why don't you give it a shot and let me know how it goes?
  9. Actually it's "skip sc, dc in next 4 sts". I thought I had all the bugs worked out, will remedy this pronto!! Thanks for pointing this out!! You have my deepest thanks!
  10. Maybe you can send me some of that yummy English yarn as thanks for the pattern?
  11. She looks awesome in the dress! http://images.eonline.com/eol_images/Entire_Site/20080507/293.richards.redbkmag.050708.jpg
  12. Thank you, FGB, for my very own copy of your published pattern! I love the style and have plans to make one very soon. I will have to modify it to fit my body frame (ahem) but it will be lovely and I can't wait!!
  13. Finally! I found a starghan I started last year and I looked at it and compared it with what I wrote on the blog and made a MAJOR ERROR! Instead of 6 dc's on the 4th R (I think) I kept putting in five and I think it was because I forgot that the ch 3 in the beginning of each round was also considered a dc. I deeply apologize and have now corrected this mistake (I know many of you have caught it and helped with the others, a big ) For those who are in despair, don't give up! Try it again and this time will result in amazing results!!!
