Pattern Note

This crochet dress pattern is worked in rounds and from top down. The square yoke is worked first then the bodice.

I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row instead of ch 3. Another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, then dc in same stitch (counted as first dc). In the pattern, I simply state dc into first stitch for every first dc of each row, so just choose your best technique.
