Sailor Dress : This pattern contains instructions to crochet the dress pictured above. This is a great rendition of a sailor dress. It features the big collar, with bodice inset, short sleeves, above knee length and simple, yet delightful, contrast color bands. The only downside of this pattern it is sized for Age 3, with no provisions. I'd think a Size 3 would be the equivalent of a 3T. The pattern design is vintage American Thread - I'd say Intermediate to Advanced.
