Crochet Dress Frequently Asked Questions

What Materials Do I Need To Crochet A Dress?

You don’t need a lot of fancy tools to crochet a dress. All crochet requires just three essentials and a few extras to make fantastic-looking wearable items.

Crochet Dress Pattern

When making a crochet dress or other clothing items, you definitely want to follow a pattern. Because you need to fit the item to a specific size, it’s not something you can easily improvise. This list is full of patterns, so browse away until you find your preferred dress style.

Crochet Hook

Crochet hooks use a letter/number combination—for example, G/6 or I/9—to designate their size. As the numbers increase, the size of the hook increases. Your pattern will tell you which size to use.

At your local craft store, you’ll find hooks made of wood, aluminum, plastic, and several other materials. Test out some different hooks to find which you prefer. You also have the option to add an ergonomic handle to a hook to help with hand strain, which you may find useful if you’re working on a larger piece.

Yarn

Yarn sizes fall into categories that have a number and “weight” designation—and again, your pattern will tell you which to use for your project. 

The following tools are necessary to crochet a dress, but you’ll likely already have them in your home.

  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle
  • Measuring tape
  • Some kind of stitch marker—bobby pins or safety pins work.


What Basic Stitches Are Used For Crochet Dress Patterns?

While we wouldn’t necessarily recommend a dress as your very first project, it won’t take you long to work up one of these designs once you’ve mastered the basics. Here are few crochet techniques that are commonly used in dress patterns:

How Do You Measure A Crochet Dress?

Crochet dress patterns are not one-size-fits-all, and you’ll want to tailor the pattern to properly fit your body. Most patterns will come with several sets of instructions for different dress sizes. It’s helpful to take a few measurements so you know which sets of instructions to follow.

  • Bust
  • Waist
  • Waist to bottom hem
  • Center of neck to hem

How Do You Wear A Crochet Dress?

There’s a lot of versatility in crochet dresses. Lacy, open patterns are perfect for vintage beachwear, whereas tighter, longer patterns are great for parties or a night out on the town. These unique crochet dresses are definitely head-turners, and if you learn your crochet essentials, you can create a whole new wardrobe. Here are some easy ways to wear a crochet dress and look stylish.

  • Beautifully boho – crochet dresses have such a laidback and feminine look to them that it’s almost impossible not to picture a Boho gypsy inspired look at the sight of one, especially if it’s a maxi dress. Crochet maxi dresses are super cute and they’re perfect for creating the perfect Boho look for the summer, too. Just throw one on, pile up the accessories, slip into a pair of strappy sandals, and off you go!
  • Wonderfully white – If you’re looking for a simple way to make a statement, go for a white crochet dress. It’s simple but packs quite a punch when making an impact.
  • Summer styling – got a cute little crochet dress that you haven’t figured out how to wear yet? Take your mini crochet dress and layer it with lighter spring and summer staples like a breezy cardigan or a denim jacket, and you have a cute street-style outfit that’s perfect for the warmer days of spring and summer.
  • Chic cover up – if you’re intimidated by the crochet dress and you think it shows too much skin for an everyday outfit, you can always wear it as a cover up instead. Just throw it on top of your swimsuit at the beach, and you have a beautiful cover-up that’s perfect for lounging around.
  • Fun festival look – if there’s one place where crochet dresses are always popular, it’s music festivals like Coachella. Mini crochet dresses are super popular here, especially when paired with fringed accessories and strappy sandals. Other crochet styles and designs are pretty much everywhere, too. If you have a crochet dress you’ve been dying to wear, a music festival is the perfect place to debut it at.

What Do You Wear Under A Crochet Dress?

Crochet dresses are always a standout and there’s something very attractive about their 70s appeal. They can be worn alone see-through over your swimsuit or you can wear them out with a slip dress underneath. If you do not want to wear a slip, you can try layering the dress over a tank top or a t-shirt. You could also pair the dress with leggings or shorts if you don’t feel comfortable wearing a skirt alone.

Are Crochet Dresses In Style in 2023?

Crochet is now a fashion trend. Since fashion is always changing, crochet fashion seems just right because it can be colorful and unique if you take the time to make your own pieces. Because the process of making a dress can be so intricate and time-consuming, today’s crochet dresses should be viewed as investment pieces that emphasize the art, craft, and care required, rather than a passing fad.

But are crochet dresses in style in 2023? Crocheted dresses will be everywhere as a fashion trend in 2023. If that isn’t direct, I don’t know what is! Bust out your stash and get making!
