The Crochet Dress Phase Continues

Hello friends! So I'm still very much in the depths of my crochet phase. Do you recall the crochet babydoll dress I made for Loovee a few posts back? Well, I've improved the design and my technique, and I've been having fun whipping up more dresses in a variety of color combinations. I even crocheted some floral hair clips to match them.

This set I'm keeping for Loovee. I know it looks a lot like the last dress I made, but it isn't. I've tweaked the colors a little in this final version .

I never did show you a view of the back, did I? I decided to use a tie closure. The ties are 100% silk double sided ribbon, which is very smooth and soft, and not stiff at all. I thought the silk ribbon closure was functional yet very pretty.

Here are the other dress/hair clips sets I've made in lovely spring colors. I plan to post these extra sets on the TIB Forum's Clothing & Sundries section later this evening, so if you are interested please take a peek there. Update: They have all been sold. Thank you to those who purchased them!

I came across even more great shops at Etsy that crochet for Blythe and I wanted to feature them here. Crocheting such tiny little dresses and accessories is not easy (for me anyways) so I admire and appreciate people who have such a talent for it.

I just adore the sweet crochet camisoles and floral bonnets at Millie Made.

Sweet Honey Complex has the cutest crochet hats! Her cupcake hats and her animal helmets are so kawaii. I especially love this frog helmet.

Lilith Delgoulet Designs creates crochet hats, tops, dresses, and coats. There's lots at her shop to choose from in various styles and colors! She also has a crafty Blythe blog, too.

Grrrlie Designs features some very sexy crochet outfits for your Blythe like sequined cocktail and flamenco dresses. She even published her very own crochet patten book!

I love the crochet hats at Lucy's Postcard Quilts for the pretty variegated yarns she uses. Her hats come in a variety of styles, too, from brimmed hats to pointy elfin caps.

The above are only a few of the many skilled Blythe crocheters at Etsy. Do check out their shops. You're bound to find something you'll fall in love with!

That's a very impressive dress. So very cute. I'm sure Loovee feels very comfortable in her tailor-made dress.

As usual, it is always a treat to see your posts.

Those dresses are so cute! I think the tie closure is a great idea, and it goes well with the style of dress.

Adorable! I am still a crochet novice, but these dresses inspire me to get out the yarn.

We loooove your little crocheted dresses! What little works of art!

Before, we were never really into crocheted dresses. But you just understand cute and make them so kawaii!

Hugs to you, Loovee, and Gachapin!
