The Suzie Sundress crochet pattern is not only beautiful and elegant, but it’s also a top-down, no-sew project!! This crochet dress 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 designed my first crochet dress, the Edgewater Sweater Dress, in the fall of 2018. I absolutely loved the end result and knew I wanted to make a summer dress very soon!
When I was choosing a yarn for this pattern, I knew I wanted it to be something lightweight but sturdy. The last thing anybody wants is their dress stretching out or not holding up to day to day activities! I decided a cotton blend would work best.
I wanted this crochet dress design to be easy! Something simple lace stitch work at the top and a very solid stitch on the bottom. I was so excited when I was able to work the design so that there was no sewing required!
I used WeCrochet Shine Sport yarn to create this dress design. Shine Sport is a #2 sport weight yarn. It is 60% pima cotton and 40% Modal natural beech wood fiber.
This yarn comes in lots of beautiful colors and can be machine washed and dried!
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!
