This pattern was from a picture I found on Pinterest for a challenge and I have produced this dress from the picture. There was no pattern on Pinterest for the dress so this is my interpretation of how the dress was tatted, and this is my written pattern from dress I produced.
I used No 5 thread to make this dress, I found the thinner threads do not work with this pattern, but it’s up to you what thread you try.
Two shuttles or ball and shuttle whichever is your preference
- + Join to picots
- Vsp very small picots used for joining.
The dress pattern starts at the top and works downwards
1st row chain start with a paper clip 2-2-2-2-2-2-2 vsp 5 vsp 5 vsp 2-2-2-2-2-2-2 vsp 5 vsp 5 vsp Join at the paperclip
2nd row chain 2 + join to the 1st vsp (you now have the 1st strap for the dress) continue with 5 +(join at the next vsp), vsp 5 + (join at the next vsp) vsp, 2 + (leave the next part of the chain with the 6ps) (join at the next vsp), vsp 5 + (join to next vsp) vsp 5 + (vsp join to the beginning of the 2nd chain. You now have two straps with chains in between which will form the body of the dress.
This starts the block part of the dress
1st row * vsp 5 + (join to 1st vsp) vsp 5 + (join to next vsp) vsp 5 + (join to next vsp) vsp 2 + (join to next vsp) vsp 5 + (join to next vsp) vsp 5 + (join to next vsp) vsp 2 + join to beginning of row *
*Repeat until 7 rounds are made.
9th row 2- x 3 join to vsp repeat all the way
You can either do a split ring to next row or end off and start again
10th row start with a split ring 2-2/2-2 chain 2-2-1-1-2-2 ring 2+2+ (join to pervious row) 2-2 repeat all the way around to end
11th row ring 2-2+2-2 *chain 1-1-1-1-1-1 ring 2+2+2-2 * repeat to end
Add either a bow or a flower on the waist of the dress.
A small strip of net folded in half and then stitched into the skirt inside is you wish, this will keep the skirt full.
