Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the crafting world. If you’ve visited CatherineChantCrochet.com before, you’ll notice what used to be the photo gallery has now become a series of blog posts highlighting the crocheted historical doll gowns I make. I try to include links to the patterns used if they are still in print.

I also post articles about other projects I’m working on, new crafting techniques I come across and a few crafting book reviews, as well. If you love crochet and crafting as much as I do, I hope you’ll subscribe to hear about new posts and share your crafting thoughts and experiences here.

I have been crocheting for over 40 years. Because I also enjoy doll collecting, I love to crochet historical gowns for  fashion dolls. On this blog I plan to highlight the collection of dresses I’ve made over the years, including several bridal gowns from different time periods.

I think my favorite dress style is the Edwardian gown. I have made several of them in different colors. The majority of dresses shown on this site are based on patterns from Annie’s Attic, Inc. and Paradise Publications. Some are still available for sale from those companies. Others you can usually find on third-party seller sites like eBay.com

At this time, I don’t have any doll clothing patterns for sale, but I do offer several other knit, crochet and jewelry patterns through my Craftsy.com pattern store. I hope you’ll stop by and visit soon! 😀
