Provence Dress

Provence Dress Crochet Pattern

In reimagining the Provence Skirt—featured on the cover of Fall 2004—Doris Chan adapts the same stitch pattern of the pencil-slim skirt to flow fluidly from a V-neck top to become a dress. The topdown, seamless Provence Dress skims the waist and hips before relaxing into a gentle flare to just above the knee, with plenty of fabric stretch for a comfortable fit for most figure types.
