  1. May I ask how you slip stitch downward? Also I don't have any sock yarn...what would you recommend as a substitute?

    1. When you start off this pattern, you are crocheting the top "shirt" part of the dress, starting from the waist up. You are crocheting this part flat, in rows. Then fold it in half, and just slip stitch the sides together, from the very top to the bottom of the the "shirt" part of the dress. Then your top part of the dress will be in a tube. When you are done with this step, you will then be at the waist of the dress, ready to start the "skirt" part of the dress, working in rounds. Hope that makes sense. If not, let me know! As for sock yarn alternative, I am not sure. You want a thin enough yarn, to where it wont look too bulky on your doll. If you have a yarn you think might work, you could give it a try...if too big, go down a hook size, too small move up a hook size. An easy way to tell before you get too far, maybe just work 1 or 2 rows and wrap it around the doll at its thickest part (probably thighs or waist), and make sure it will slip over that area easily when closed. Again, if that doesnt make sense...let me know!

    2. Thank you so much! Yes that explanation helps!
