Updated on April 19, 2014

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

Working on new designs for doll clothes is pretty tough. While aiming for a different design, I came up with this lace casual top paired with a (micro) mini skirt. This free pattern goes very well with Barbie Basic Socks. You can find a picture of this outfit paired with knee high socks in the link.

This hub is a free crochet pattern for a Barbie lace casual top and a mini skirt. It is worked separately so it can be paired with other pieces. The outfit is made to fit Barbie Basics doll (or Model Muse). For more on body type differences, please visit Crocheting for Your Barbie Doll.

Materials and Gauge

  • 3 small snaps or velcro
  • The materials used for this pattern is similar to Barbie Panties with No Snaps.
  • My gauge was 2 inches for 5 pattern repeats. Here is an image of my gauge for reference:

The whole front is 2 inches in width.

Pattern

Lace Casual Top

Before you start the pattern, use your hook and find out how many chains you need to go around the bust of your Barbie doll. I got a number of 44 for my Barbie basics doll with the size 6 hook. Divide this number by 2 and that is the minimum number of chains you need to start this pattern (44 / 2 = 22).

For the stitch pattern, you need a starting chain that is divisible by 4 + 2. Because I needed a minimum of 22, I just ch 22 + 1 for the turning chain to start the front.

Front Part:

Row 1: Ch 23 (1 ch counts as turning ch), sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next ch, *ch 2, sk next 2 ch, sc in each of the next 2 ch*, repeat from * across, turn.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in next sc, *ch 2, sk next ch-2 sp, dc in each of the next 2 sc), repeat from * across, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, sc in the first 2 dc, *ch 2, sk next ch-2 sp, sc in each of the next 2 dc*, repeat from * across, turn.

Row 4-15: Repeat Rows 2 and 3.

Shoulder 1:

Row 16: Ch 3, dc in next st, ch 2, sk next ch-2 sp, dc in each of the next 2 sc, turn.

Row 17: Ch 1, sc in the first 2 dc, ch 2, sk next ch-2 sp, sc in each of the next 2 dc. Fasten off.

Shoulder 2:

Row 16: Continuing in the unworked sts of Row 15, sk the next 3 ch-2 sp, join with sl st on dc, ch 3, dc in next st, ch 2, sk next ch-2 sp, dc in each of the next 2 sc, turn.

Row 17: Repeat Row 17 of Shoulder 1.

Your top should now look like this:

This is just the front part of the top. You still need to make the 2 back panels to complete the outfit.

Note: The pattern forms squares for each row. My top had 7 square rows, with 1 row assigned for the shoulders and 6 for the body. When sewing the parts together, I will be referring to these squares.

Back Panel (Make 2):

For the back part, we want to make 2 panels that overlap together for the snaps. So, 22 / 2 = 11. But 11 does not work for the pattern, so I added 3 to make it 14, which meets the criterion.

Row 1: Ch 14, sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch 2, sk the next 2 ch, sc in each of the next 2 ch*, repeat from * across, turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, dc in the next sc, *ch 2, sk the next ch-2 sp, dc in each of the next 2 sc*, repeat from * across, ending with 1 dc on top of the last sc, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first dc, *ch 2, sk the next ch-2 sp, sc in each of the next 2 dc*, repeat from * across, turn.

Row 4-15: Repeat Rows 2 and 3.

Row 16-17: Repeat Rows 16 and 17 of Front Part.

Sew the shoulder seams (right side) together. For the side seams, leave 2 square rows from top of shoulder part so each hand can fit through the holes. Turn the right side out and put it on your Barbie.

If you find the skirt too short, you can still add more Rnds.
