The Suzie Sundress crochet pattern is not only beautiful and elegant, but it’s also a top-down, no-sew project!! This sundress is made using only basic crochet stitches and requires no sewing or seaming. It’s very easy to make and adjust to your liking!
I used Premier Yarns Cotton Fair yarn to create this dress design. Cotton Fair is a #2 sport weight yarn, and is a cotton/acrylic blend.
I absolutely love using cotton fair for my lightweight, summer projects. It’s so light and feels great against my skin.
This yarn has amazing stitch definition as well.
It doesn’t get hot, even in this blistering Florida weather! I have used it to make tank tops, swimsuit covers, and now a dress! It holds up well in the wash without any pilling or unraveling.
I usually machine wash my crocheted garments and lay them flat to dry. You can find out more in my post on How to Care for Your Crocheted Garments.
The Suzie Sundress crochet pattern comes in both children’s sizes (2-10) and adult sizes (XS-2X)!
Because this dress is a top-down workup and requires no sewing, you can adjust this pattern to your preference. You can stop at the hips and make it a tank top! Or make it into a tunic, or even a long dress! I definitely plan to make a tank top with this pattern!
You can also easily adjust the width if you need more or less room. The increases are easy to compute and you can also just go up a hook size or two to loosen up your stitches! Some of my testers even added striping to the bottom of their dress and it turned out so gorgeous! You can use this pattern and totally do your own thing with the styling!
