Firenze/Florence Granny-Lace Crochet white Dress

Firenze Granny-Lace Dress

A lovely summer dress! 

White granny-squares, so classy and summer fresh! The “First Flower of the Year Square” is designed exclusively for this dress.Looking at the dress, granny squares are not the first I think of, more a lace-fabric! The Italian town Firenze (Florence) was famous for its lace fabrics for centuries, that's why I have included this town in the pattern title!

Dress it up or down; Cover-up on the beach,
 party-dress, or even a wedding dress!
Large squares, simple joining method. 
You need 8 squares, and 4 half-squares for the bodice,
and 7 squares for the hemline of the dress.

Work the squares into a top, a tunic, or a dress
in any length. 
Easy mesh below the bodice.

Close-up of squares and mesh-pattern.
