Crochet Tutorial: Baby Dress with a Bow

Today’s tutorial is a baby dress with a bow. This piece completes the bow-tastic trio outfit, complete with a crocheted bow hat and crocheted bow sandals.

This video demonstrates a dress that is 0-3 months in size which is perfect for a newborn! I found a lot of inspiration from this pattern that I found for free online by This Housewife Life.

Baby Dress with a Bow

I made this dress using Red Heart yarn in white and red, however, you can use any worsted weight yarn of your choice. If you wanted to make this a bigger size, I would recommend using a larger hook and/or thicker yarn. I used an H-5.00mm hook. You could use an I-5.5mm hook or even a J-6.00mm hook.

If you want to make your bow bigger or smaller, watch this video tutorial I filmed a while back to show you how!

This ruffle dress is very girly! The bow embellishment really dresses this outfit up! You can change out the embellishment with a flower, a butterfly, or anything else you can think of! Get creative with embellishments and color! This is just a basic tutorial to get you started. This video is geared toward an intermediate crocheter, but I tried to work in a way that a beginner could try this challenge as well.
