    The picture that is attached with description #10 belongs to description #6 called Summer Dress. You can look up Summer Dress on Ravelry to verify. I don’t know if the off-white dress pictured as #6 is actually “Italian Crochet Dress” or not, but I think it’s possible. It would certainly be nice if the descriptions or the pictures or SOMETHING contained links to the patterns or the websites where we can buy the patterns.
