How would I go about making the dress larger?

DROPS Design 25.05.2019 kl. 09:58:

Dear Patricia, the simplest way is to use a slightly larger hook... otherwise you have to recalculate the number of stitches you are starting with. Always do a sample and base your calculations on that. Happy Crocheting!

Tammy 16.07.2018 - 12:48:

Thank you.

Tammy 16.07.2018 - 01:09:

What does it mean when you say: include 1 dc each side to sew in? Third line of back piece. \\\\r\\\\nThx

DROPS Design 16.07.2018 kl. 09:23:

Dear Tammy, these sts are the first and the last st, ie the edge sts, when sewing both pieces together at the end, you will sew in these sts. Happy crocheting!

Ik snap niets van die schouder hoe dat moet..als ik over 8 steken verder moet haken dan wordt bij mij de schouder heel hoekig en loopt niet mooi schuin weg . HELP

DROPS Design 11.07.2018 kl. 11:32:

Dag Marje, Dat klopt ook hoor, de schouder loopt niet schuin weg, maar gewoon recht. (Dit is eigenlijk niet goed aangegeven in de tekening.)

Dear Garn Studio Can you advise how I can make this lovely dress in an XXL OR XXXL.

DROPS Design 05.08.2014 kl. 12:13:

Dear Yvonne, you may get inspired with this other dress worked in Safran to size XL. Happy crocheting!

Great! Thank you for your help :)

Elizabeth Tabi 19.06.2013 - 07:49:

Dear Garn Studio, Could you please help clarify one of the lines in the pattern? For both the front and back sides, the last line states: 'crochet only 7/8/9 tr closest to the neck = shoulder'. Does this mean to crochet seven trebles on the final row for each sleeve, or something else? Kind regards.

DROPS Design 19.06.2013 kl. 08:58:

Dear Mrs Tabi, you are correct, the final row is worked on the only 7 tr towards neckline to shape shoulder - see measurement chart to see the slanting line for shoulder. Happy crocheting!
