    I’d like to try crocheting that white dress with the blue ribbon but my daughter’s a XS/S and the size forbthat one says size 12- any suggestions on how to figure out how to make it smaller? Thank you so much for your help – I want to get it done so she can wear it to her graduation in 2 weeks.

      I’m not sure but if this is actually an older pattern you may want to look at the guage and figure out what the finished size will be. A size 12 used to be a lot smaller than a size 12 is today.

    The last dress’s pattern is in Spanish, then English. Do you know if they are using British crochet terms, or American? It’s a beautiful dress!

      Hi Laura! Those would be US terms – the clue is the Hdc – in the UK there’s no Hdc, it’s Htr. :)

      Unfortunately, it looks like one of the Ravelry editors decided to remove the links. I’ll update the listing here on Moogly. :(
