My favorite hobby is crocheting doll clothes. Using what I've learned from reading existing patterns, I create my own designs for Barbie.

With a flurry of parties to attend, here is a simple cocktail dress to make for your Barbie doll. I made this trendy by adding a high low skirt with a simple tube top.

This hub is a free crochet pattern for a High Low Cocktail Dress for Barbie. This pattern is specifically designed for the Barbie Basics doll (or Model Muse). For more on body type differences, please visit Crocheting for Your Barbie Doll.

Materials and Gauge

  • Size No. 6 Crochet Steel Hook;
  • Size No. 10 Crochet Cotton Thread;
  • 2 Small Snaps;
  • Short length of ribbon or any trim or embellishments you want to add;
  • Scissors;
  • Tapestry Needle;
  • Needle and Thread; and
  • Gauge is similar to Barbie Panties with No Snaps.

Pattern

Note: I made the skirt with the intention of making the seam invisible. The pattern already includes the instruction on how to do so.

Starting from the waist of the skirt:

Row 1: Ch 32, dc in the third ch from hook, dc in each ch across, turn. (30)

Row 2: Ch 2 (this turning ch does not count as dc from here throughout), (dc in the next 9 sts, 2 dc in the next st) 3 times, turn. (33)

Row 3: Ch 2, (dc in the next 10 sts, 2 dc in the next st) 3 times, turn. (36)

Rnd 4: Ch 2, dc in each st across, join with sl st on first dc (not the turning ch!), turn. (36)

Note: This is what helps make the joining seam invisible. Here is a photo of the seam:

Rnd 5: Ch 2, (dc in the next 3 sts, 2 dc in the next st) around, join, turn. (45)

Rnd 6: Repeat Rnd 4. (45)

Fasten off at the end of Row 16.

If you find the dress to be too monotone, you can add a ribbon or some trim to break the color. Here is what my finished product looks like:
