Enjoy.  This is using a crocheted bodice and adding a tulle with lining skirt.  One of these dresses can be completed in 2 hours or less.  The most time consuming part if crocheting the top. After that the rest of the dress is pretty quick.

@‌Julia from NorCal.  The tulle I used is from the wedding section in Michael's craft store that is sold in a roll that is about 6 inches in width and there are different amount of yards that the roll comes in.  I did see a wider width but I thought that might be too thick at the bodice trying to make the knot so I went with the 6 inch width.

As for packing the tulle seems to keep the dress stiff like to just wrap up in tissue paper.  I used two tissue paper to wrap up the dress.  The length of the dress fit just fine with the tissue paper width that I did not have to fold the dress at all.  I would suggest that if you have to fold the dress anywhere I would fold it at the waist since the yarn part will not wrinkle as much as the tulle.

Thank you for the explanation. I had looked at tulle at the fabric store and they were on bolts in different colors. Is the ribbon tulle different? Does it have a particular edging? I wonder if I could just buy the bolt tulle and cut it. Would that turn out the same way?

The pattern is so sweet that I want to give it a try. It would be wonderful for the families. Thank you for sharing it and your answers.

You can give it a try.  I know I have not patience with cutting out tulle since it moves too easily.  that's why I just used the roll version and only have to cut the tulle for the length I need.  You can give it a try.  I'm sure even different shape strips would make the skirt interesting.  Have fun with it.

@Brandi D. === sorry for the late reply.  one of the dresses I stitched a hem all around and then attached it to the dress.  I also tried one dress where I only hem stitched the bottom but I used my pinking shears for the sides and they worked just fine.
