Crochet Dress - Jennifer Aniston in "Just Go with It"

You can buy it from here Jennifer Dress

Update 21.04.2011

So , here I am, working for hours and hours... and I am far from finish. It looks like the rows are longer and longer.... I used almost 300g of cotton until now.
I will post the pattern as soon as I will have some time to draw it.

I have made a little change to the original pattern I posted : under the arm (as seen in the picture) work only 6 "triple stitches part" in the first row and 5 in the second. (with 8 and 7 it was to tight.)
I worked only 3 rows of "4x triple stitches" from under the breasts, and tighten the work until I reached my waist line and I emphasize my waist by working 8 simple stitches rows. From here I started working with higher stitches and add stitches to every *simple stitch row part*. I will post the pattern as soon as possible!!







Elisa noticed that we lose 2 stitches every time we work the triple stitch part, so she suggested to work the first and the last 2 triple stitches in the same stitch.
Thank you Elisa!



Since I saw the poster at the cinema (a very large size poster), I've wanted to make this crocheted dress worn by Jennifer Aniston, in her recent movie "Just Go with It. " It just obsesses me ... : D. I will crochet it from thin cotton yarn. I will also post the crochet pattern on my blog for those who want to make it on their own. If you want to purchase the dress please contact me at alinabarsan@clicknet.ro I don't know a price yet, it depends on how much material I use, and how many hours I work.

  1. Designer swimsuit not only makes the wearer look stunning, but also it makes her feel special while at the beach or just having a nice tan..

  2. I've seen other pictures of the dress and I think that at the end some stitches must be added to make the ruffle effect.

  3. Yes, I saw that as the pattern goes down, the stitches are higher, the yarn is taken over hook maybe even for or five times. I didn't get there yet. :D

  4. Thank you! I think my yarn is thinner than the one used in this dress because I saw some very good pictures and I used a higher number of stitches. Anyway, the thinner the yarn, the finer the texture... so I guess that's a good thing. Well, we'll see! :D

  5. I've made all separated parts and then I've connected them through slst.. but I think it's better to do all 1 piece.. next time I'll do better :)!

  6. Yes, I also tried 2 times... I knew it is better to do them together, but it is easier now to make them, after I connect all the pieces. I don't think I would have succeeded to make it before. Please , if you find errors or difficulties in the pattern, let me know. I want it to be perfect.

  7. what hook size are you using? I'm thinking about starting it again.. maybe my hook is too big (4.00 mm), so I should try a thiner thread
    :(

  8. My yarn is a thin yarn (430m/100g) and I use a 1,7mm crochet hook. I will measure the pattern and according to these you can adapt your work. I will post a drawing later today or tomorrow in the morning.

  9. This is really great, I want a dress just like it.
    Just wondering, how much yarn did you use for the whole dress?

  11. Although, I think that I had to use higher stitches from the forth row of... I don't know how to call them... that four+stitches+worked+in+the+same+stitch.
    Maybe take the yarn over hook 4 times from the fourth row+"part" and even 7times in the last row.

  14. I fell in love with the dress as soon as I saw it in the movie. Then I found you, and you had a pattern. I made the dress in about three days, however, since I did not use the very thin crochet thread, I had to improvise. I used a 4 weight cotton yarn, which is much heavier than what is called for. The dress came out pretty good for a rush job (I just had to make it), but the next time I make it, I will definitely use thread. I still have some finishing to do. Thank you for posting the pattern. I just love all of your work, you are such an inspiration.

  15. I should have read your blog before I made the dress. I will post a picture of the dress I made to your Facebook page. I hope you don't mind.

  18. How much thread did you end up using? At one point you had used 300g, but I can't find where you gave an amount after completing the dress. I can't wait to start! So excited!!! Thank you for the pattern!!!

    1. Hi Rebecca,
      You will have to prepare 400 grams of cotton, to be sure you have enough. Please let me know when the dress is finished!
      Good luck!
