Crochet Lace Crop Top and Dress Pattern

Design Inspiration:

I always think of creating a lacy mesh midi dress with basic stitches, and I also wish my design to be flexible, can be both a simple crop top and can be a dress that evolved from that crop top, then this design was born :).

Yarn:

For this design I use cotton yarn which is 250m/100g. It can be a heavy Sport weight yarn such as Ice Yarn Camilla Cotton, Catania or a very light dk yarn.

Hook:

I use 3.5 mm crochet hook for the whole pieces of pattern. You can replace it by 3.0 mm hook or 4.0 mm hook based on your crochet tension.
