Here is one of the latest crochet dress listings; another I have from the Sirdar “Summer Breeze” range (see also WZ 709 and WZ 710).

Sixties style crochet shift dresses; still completely fresh and wearable even after all these years. This style is SO useful in one’s wardrobe; elegant and quick to crochet too!

“Summer Breeze” was a bouclé cotton – worked with a 3.00mm or 3.5mm hook. Aptly named in this case, as these styles are, indeed,  a breeze to crochet! The cotton yarn has lots of texture so the stitch patterns are simple-but look very effective.

I have so many crochet patterns for these dresses (and also some knitted ones too) and they make lovey first garment projects too.


About WonkyZebra

WonkyZebra and I have collected tons of patterns over the years. Before this was fashionable and the whole “vintage” thing happened, it was just considered to be a funny sort of hoarding; a bit “anorak” to use one of the slightly mocking terms us English specialise in. Now it is a wonderful source of lost treasure in the online textile universe; who would have guessed! It was quite a relief to find there are many others “out there” who appreciate a good pattern-and maybe even enjoy using them! I think it is a good thing anyone can get access to the designs instead of just those lucky enough to find them in gran’s workbox or charity shops. So, here we are with all our hoard, trying to make it all available as fast as we can…hooves don’t help much so it is down to me. I squeeze it in between actual crocheting, knitting, life, and other sundries. Vintage patterns; PDFs for sale at
