Make it with size 20!

 These were designed for 4 1/2 inch crochet mini Hitty, but should fit any similarly sized doll


If you like a somewhat more delicate look to your tiny crochet, consider using size 20 crochet cotton, or DMC perle size 8.  I work these threads with a size 9 hook, and it really is not much more difficult than size 10 thread with a size 7 hook.  It just takes a little getting used to.

The advantage of size 20 is more detail in your crochet, and also better drape in the garments.  What I want to share today is a pattern for some basic garment elements, but not a complete dress.  Why?  Two reasons:  you can use your own creativity in making a garment, as long as you have the basic fit of the bodice.   Secondly, the dress is not my original idea, but one I fell in love with on Pinterest.

The bloomers and camisole are my own, and include full instructions.

Enjoy the crochet!
