Please contact me re: directions in the bodice area. Don't understand why each row is decreasing instead of going all the way around.

Love the pattern but am confused about the ch l (2 dc ch 1 2dc in l stich Round 3 is easy to understand but then round 4 has you doing a dc in the chain space but only in the first group of section A. My guess is that to balance it should be done in all group of section A across. Thanks

There is no dc in the chain-space in the round 4, it is only in round 3.

Try this..when you chain 1,skip a sc, that makes a hole as you see in the pic. example, sectionB ch1,5dc,ch1,5dc will span across 12 sc of previous row

I corrected the instructions for the first row of the bodice.

I use a one hook & I crochet very loosely. so if you crochet tight a bigger hook will help. also note not to crochet the skirt in the round until you have done at least 3 inches of pattern. it will be near impossible to get the dress on the doll.

Thanks for this tip. I was wondering how in the world you could get this on the doll if you worked in the round from the beginning. I love this pattern, but I'm having a little trouble following instructions, so I thought I'd read the comments. They and the designer's replies to them are very helpful.

Thank you soooo much for taking your time to answer. Ican't tell you how many grand children and their friends the doll clothes have absolutely delighted. In my wildest dreams I wouldn't have the creative talent to do this, no problem giving your site credit or linking to it. Again we all thank you!!234gp

this is a very pretty pattern, it has been difficult to understand some of the directions as they were stated. My biggest trouble seems to be the gauge, it is fine around, but too short in the length. I will check my tension, but if there is another solution please let me know.

To solve the problem of 2 extra stitches remaining in row 2 of the bodice I skipped a loop evenly on each side 3 dc from the rear of the armholes to decrease the row by 2.

Gorgeous! I am finishing a second one for gifts. I also altered the pattern for a 3rd dress to use worsted weight yarn. Turned out beautifully! Nieces are doing cartwheels over this doll dress!

Hi, I don't understand what the pattern means in sectionA ch1,(2dc, ch1, 2dc) in the same loop.

I am on the Bodice right now. Row 1 has 70 stitches which is fine. Row 2 you end up with 66 and then Row 3 adds up to 64 stitches. What do I do with the extra two spaces?

What size hook gets the right gage, and is a stitch skipped when working the skirt, I have a one hook, but think I need a large one.

Your corrected instructions of Row 1 Bodice, does not help the stitch count of Row 2 unless you specify that we treat the ch1 as a stitch.

These are the worse instructions I've ever seen. I'm attaching to the waist to start the bodice. this was a "chain 70" to start. Row 1 of bodice says "skip 1, 1 DC in next". that give you 35 DC. but bodice Row 2 has 75 stitches. What am I missing??

I can't get the right gauge! Anyone else have a problem with this? The waist isn't large enough for the AG doll if I use a 1 hook. Help!

I'm at the end of the dress & the directions does not say anything about attaching shoulders or where to attach for sleeves & collar. Could you please help me with this?

I'm a little confused. On Rnd 3 after you do the 2dc ch1 2dc in same loop then it says ch1 2dc. Where do you do the ch1 2dc?

Hi! Dress is lovely, but I'm confused. Are we supposed to skip a stitch when chaining 1 between sections? I do not see a chart. Thank you!
