I love finding new FREE patterns for crocheting. It’s sometimes difficult to find a free pattern because you have to follow link to link to find the pattern for beautiful designs. Well have no fear I’m here to show you this beautiful pattern on what’s called a Sugar N Spice Dress. This dress for little girls is absolutely adorable and will win you over! I’m not a professional pattern writer and often I find patterns or have them handed to me from friends. Hope you enjoy!

      I use to live in Connecticut and we made them in the winter time up north. It’s very cute and would work on dolls as well!

    Wow, that is so pretty. I wish I could make something like this. I know it’s time consuming but it would get me so frustrated if I messed it up lol. Thanks for sharing.
