I went to half price books and found this wonderful book by Mary Jane Hall called "Crochet that Fits" and it has gorgeous, yet simple projects for the beginner crocheter.
I made the body of her dress from the lion brand yarn in lilac, and the sleeve and border of the dress in Bernat's baby coordinates in orchid. I also added a ribbon above the waist to add a little more "pep" to the dress. The straps for the dress can come off the shoulder as I lined the neck and shoulder with elastic, but she will have to keep them up for now!! ;-)
I can't wait to get started on my skirt! Will post that later...but for now, here is Caleah's dress!
