Retro styled, or the vintage styled dresses are popular not only amongst the young and old but also for the kids. Any clothing that takes inspiration from some old model or style of dressing from the past is referred to as a vintage dress. It is essential however to carry the method out in a reasonable way, i.e., you have to get a feeling of the past with the attitude of today. 

Crocheting is a technique that is also an old one, and it too is a popular trend not only in clothing but also in decorative crafts and arts. When vintage looks are combined with the crocheting technique, a whole new world of styling is created and opens so many options that it becomes hard to choose one. Today we have picked a combination of these two styling techniques to create a dress for the toddler. We will provide you a guide to select the best vintage style dress for your toddler.

1. The first step in creating the dress is to plan what you want, how you want it and for what occasion you are going to wear it at.

2. Then you will need to question yourself regarding your skills in the sewing. You have to pick up the complexity of the dress design based on your expertise, how much you are informed about the crocheting and sewing and how well you can put together all the steps for creating the dress.

3. Next thing will be to choose the appropriate dress for your toddler. The choice of the clothing depends upon the gender of your toddler and his appearance. If it is a girl, you will have more options compared to that of the boy. The dresses for girls are in various designs and can be opted out quickly; you have got frocks, gowns, blouses and skirts that could all be given a vintage look easily. Now consider the appearance of your child and based on it, pick the right dress that would suit you. In case of a girl, too frilly frocks would not satisfy a very lean baby while also skin exposing ones would not go well for a chubby one.

4. Search for a perfect looking dress and take out its print on paper, so you do not have to consult your gadget again and again for it.

5. Now set off with the crocheting and sewing. While sewing, take the sample dress the one that perfectly fit your little one and suits him the best.

6. Once the dress is ready, try it on your baby and start planning for the right occasion to make him wear it.


Sewing a dress out of your own hands for your child gives you a satiated feeling, something that is incomparable. However, if you are not an expert in this field, the Ana Giovanna store for the kids clothing would prove to be the most appropriate choice for vintage crochet clothes for the toddler.
