After a long day at work, sometimes I would rather just plop down on the couch than be off in my craft room by myself. One of the great things about working on crocheted projects is that I can relax, watch television and hang out with my family while I work on these projects. This Crocheted American Girl Doll Dress was one that I created with leftover yarn from another project.
Combine two crochet patterns
For this dress I combined two projects I have already showed you on my blog. Those were my the American Girl Doll dress pattern, and a ruffle that was originally used for a hair scrunchie.

Here is a close up of the ruffle. It is the exact same stitch from the hair scrunchie project I did, which you can see by clicking HERE.
This is a great book for a beginner or someone who would like some new ideas for projects using basic stitches. Working some of these projects has really helped me to build my confidence as a crocheter.
This dress has a great fullness to it. Just look at that skirt when it is all fanned out! Crocheted American Girl Doll Dress is a great way to use up that yarn in your stash. You could do different variations by changing the colors where the bodice changes to the skirt. Or change the yarn every two rows for a striped dress.
