I started crocheting a halter top for myself when I thought how cute it would look as a dress for my little cousin, Madison. So I switched up a few things here and there but felt super accomplished with my finished product. If it hadn’t taken so long, I probably would have turned around and made myself one (in every color!)

|This cute little purse has a small frilly flower on it – check out my Turqua Spring Wreath post to make your own Frilly Flower. It has a large glass pearl sewn into the center of the purse as a closure. Despite how small it looks in this picture, this purse is large enough to hold my phone, keys, ID and still has a little room for more.|

All three items took about two balls of Red Heart Super Saver Grape Fizz, one ball of Red Heart Super Saver Lavender, and less than one ball of Red Heart Super Saver Orchid. I also used 11 6mm brown glass pearls (sewn into center of ruffle flowers) and 1 10mm brown glass pearl (sewn into center of purse). The stack of buttons used to hold the straps are the LaMode Coordinates Moonlight Leaves.

That is a super cute halter top conversion (lol)….into a dress for a young one…and the hat and purse finishes it off perfectly!
Sometimes I amaze myself with what I used to make compared to what I make now. This dress is one of my favorites!! And she really enjoyed it. I think it’s time for an updated tutorial/pattern.
