Oh, it can't be Monday! It's too gruesome! Well, I won't let it get me down. I'll just pretend I'm at Tiffany's. Nothing bad could ever happen to you in a place like Tiffany's!
She was born on May 4th, 1929, so I wanted to pay tribute today! A true film and fashion icon, she starred in 31 top quality films. Known for such style and elegance, she was quoted as saying, "My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying large sunglasses and little sleeveless dresses.".. Oh, but if you ask me, you have to peek from behind those sunglasses just so, to really try to carry off that Audrey Hepburn look, don't you think?!
In fond memory, I wanted to make a doll dressed in that little black dress and hat she wore when she first let Paul (or Fred.. or Fred Baby!) into her apartment, just before she was running on her way to visit Sally Tomato at the prison! So here she is! I love this outfit in the movie, and I've crocheted it for an 11 1/2" fashion doll. Cross my heart and kiss my elbow, I'm going to share the pattern today!

Row 8: In FLO, *sc in 3 st, 2 sc in the next st* across. Join with a sl st to the first st, making sure unused loops are on the INSIDE of the dress. From here, you are now crocheting in rounds.

With black thread, sew snap at the top opening of the back of the dress.
For straps, counting 9 st from the each end of the top row (from the snaps), attach black yarn (now at the front), where here you will chain 11 from each of those stitches, thus making each strap of the dress. Sl st each end of these chains to the second st in from each end (again, by the snaps) of the first top row of dress, to attach straps to the back of the dress. Fasten off these yarns and weave in ends.
