Note: at this point check the length, dress is long till the chest point, if you want a longer dress you can crochet more rows and then you start the Vshaping of neckline.
Do not break yarn,  you will be working  row 1 ( First separation row, a V st row) and start creating  the V shape neckline.  You will be working  till the middle of our piece , turning  back and continuing  crocheting in rows , only for the left  panel of the dress.

SEWING

Put the front piece onto the back, right sides facing you.
Then you will get your yarn needle and a long piece of yarn to sew.
You may wish to pin the pieces together so they don’t move around, attaching the clusters of each row of front and back panels. .
You will begin sewing right sides facing you.
 Start on the side seams from bottom up, till bottom armhole point, leaving an opening for
SIZE SMALL:  7, 08 inches (18cm) 

SIZE MEDIUM:  7,87  inches ( 20cm)

SIZE LARGE:  8,66  inches ( 22cm)
Do the same on the other side
Then sew the shoulders seam, attaching   the 5(6,7) clusters of each front panel to the back panels clusters , so you leave 3 clusters free in center back neckline.

Fasten off, weave in ends.
