As you know Suzanne and I have been doing a challenge, if we see something on Pinterest we would like to try, then we try and make it. Well August proved to be a challenge, I fell in love with these tatted dresses, Its from Tiny Flowers, there was no pattern that I could find, so I worked this dress out from the picture. I had a couple of trials No 20 thread was too fine and it worked out so small so I tried a thicker thread and here is it.
I made the coat hanger for the dress, not the best coat hanger in the world but its OK. I used size no 10 thread in white. I must say it felt like tatting with string, No 10 is thick thread and by the picture she had used a thicker thread, the bodice is block tatting and then the skirt is rings and chains. I then sewed a piece of netting under the skirt which helped bring the skirt out. I made a tiny bow and sewed it on the dress.
If anyone would like my version of the dress I have now put it on my pattern blog Link It may not be exactly as Tiny Flowers pattern, but I think its near enough.
It proved a challenge so I hope you like it, now I feel like making a few more, so watch this space.

Ps the size from the top to the bottom of the skirt is 2 inches, sorry I forgot to add it in the post
