Tulips Aplenty Dress

 A Free Crochet Pattern


I can not tell you how happy I am that spring is on the way. We will get more chances to go outside and play, and we won't have to deal with those bulky coats. I am adding another old pattern to the blog this week.

This sweet little dress is also from the Crochetvolution archives. I have very slowly been bringing those patterns over to the blog so they can be found in one place. The pictures I have of Little One in this dress make me wonder where all the time as gone. She is not so little any more.

This is a longer pattern but it comes together quickly. Because it is so long I have provided a pdf that is available to purchase for $3.00. Just click the buy now. It will take you over to my Ravelry Store. This is a great option if you want an ads free printer friendly version.

Celebrate spring with me by trying out this little big pattern.
