Loopsy Doll Dress to crochet

The burden here is sweet....

The method for figuring out a doll dress with a back opening, usually there are two back pieces, two sleeves, and a front which will equal the width of the two back pieces. To figure the size out for this doll, I simply chained a length, wrapping this around the neck and over the shoulders of the doll. This gave me an idea of how long I needed for the beginning chain. in this case it was approximately 20 or so, so I rounded this up to 24+1ch for turning. 4 stitches for the back, 4 for the armhole, 8 for the front, 4 for second armhole, 4 for the other back section. The front must equal 2x the back. I’m sure that’s obvious, but just thought repeating wouldn’t hurt. 😉
