For the sundress, repeat row 6 three more times or to desired length.

To make the shoulder straps for the sundress, find the center of the work along the upper edge. Fasten the thread and crochet 4 sc into 4 stitches of the edge, turn, *ch 1, work sc in each of the 4 sc, turn.  Repeat from * until the strap is 1" long. Fasten it to the back, approx. 4 stitches from the back seam. Make the second strap the same way.


Finishing the skirt:

Sew the back seam. Weave in thread ends. Crochet a chain about 6-8" long for a belt. Insert it in the first eyelet row. Instead of strings you can use a narrow ribbon.

Finishing the sundress:

Sew a button to the upper edge, use a chain-3 of the opposite edge as a button loop. Sew the back up from the hem up to approx. the 5th row.
You can also leave the back seam open and sew more buttons.


Top

The top is worked top-down in one piece. Raglan increases in the first row: (2 dc in the indicated chain, chain 1, 2 dc in the same chain).

With 1.75mm hook chain 36, continue with 1.25mm hook
