Red, White, & Blue Crochet Top

I really enjoy creating patriotic crafts, and I've created several patriotic outfits for my daughter. Last summer was my daughters last summer wearing the Patriotic Patchwork Dress I made for her when she was two because she has finally outgrown it, so she needed something new in red, white, and blue!

To create this outfit, I used a pattern from the book Crocheting Clothes Kids Love and Caron Simply Soft Yarn in Golden Gate Bridge and Dark Country Blue.

The pattern is called Lacy Sundress, but I made it a little shorter by only crocheting 15 rows of the skirt portion of the dress. My daughter has a ton of dresses, and I wanted something she could pair with a pair of shorts. Anyhoo... I used the Dark Country Blue yarn to crochet the bodice. I think the Golden Gate Bridge yarn sure is pretty. I originally wanted to use a colorway called Our Heritage, but I couldn't find any locally, and I only have one skein in my stash, although I'm pretty sure I bought two or three...

The bodice has 4 button holes.

The funnest part of creating this top was crocheting the bottom portion with this pretty Golden Gate Bridge yarn! The "white" parts have a hint of pink.

I found a few red and blue plaid buttons in my button stash that I thought were perfect for this top.

The pattern has a lacy look on the bottom portion of the dress/top.  I can see a star in there...

All done!

I think my daughter will enjoying wearing this outfit to school tomorrow with a cute pair of white sandals... 

Thanks for reading! And I hope you'll check out some of my other Red, White, & Blue creations...
