Calico Critter V-stitch Sundress

Today I’m sharing my Calico Critter V-stitch sundress pattern.  I created the pattern a few months ago for my younger sister’s much loved Calico Critter figures as a birthday present.

This pattern fits the child and toddler figures.

You will need:
  • Mercerized cotton crochet thread

Note: For the baby’s skirt, use half-double crochet instead of double crochet for the V-stitches.
