View video at 27:39 for the sleeve part of the tutorial if you have troubles following this written pattern.

I show a couple different ways to decorate the dress and also how to add in the button loop in the back to close up the dress. Please view video for this part as it's too hard to explain in written form.

Feel free to make the sleeve longer and play around with different stitches too!

  1. Thank you Sharon for another wonderful pattern. I've been checking here since yesterday AM for this pattern, I knew you would have it up today!! I have made several of your patterns and they are clear and easy to understand and work up quickly. I check everyday to see whats new. Thank you again for sharing your wonderful crochet with us. HUGGGGSSSSS Martha

  2. Bonitos y fáciles vestidos. Gracias

  3. ACK...these are the cutest ever!!!

  4. Hi, I was just wondering if these dress patterns would work for you mice. Or would they be to big for them? Because I think your mice would look super cute in these dresses!

    1. no, sorry. The Dress Up Pigs are almost 11 inches tall. Later in the year I will be able to design more clothing.

      Thanks for asking :)

  5. Hello Sharon! When I made my pig I used 2 strands of yarn. If I use 2 strands on the outfit will it fit my pig? I love your patterns and videos. I made Darcy with 2 strands of worsted yarn for my Great Nephew who is 3, he loved him. I don't know how to post pictures, when I do, I will post them on your FB. Thanks again for your wonderful patterns & Video's!!

    1. I'm sure that will work. I haven't used double strands for clothing myself but I'm pretty sure it would work up the same as amigurumi.

      I'm so glad you are enjoying the patterns :)
