How to crochet an easy summer dress

So, this is my first attempt in crocheting a dress , it's been long since I wanted to crochet dresses and cardigans and now I'm slowly starting .
I hope you like this pattern like I do  and find it easy to follow, don't hesitate if you have any questions or concern.
The measurement will depend on everyone's size, this pattern is based  on my own size which is medium (38 European size).
The initial number of chains is based on the hips since it is a straight "cut" dress.
The stitch ( pattern ) used for this dress is the granny stripe. If you are new to the granny stripes, here is a link if you are left handed, and this if you are right handed
If you find any mistake on this post or pattern, please correct me, I might sometimes not see properly where I did it or overlook it.
