Updated on April 16, 2016

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

Having seen a pin on Pinterest on how to do triangle picots, I wanted to incorporate the technique into a new design for Barbie. I decided to go for a Wilma Flintstone inspired dress to showcase the triangles at the hem. Just add a pearl necklace to complete the look. Since I prefer to make modern clothes, I decided to change the shape to a bodycon dress, instead of following the original design.

This hub is a free crochet pattern for a Barbie Wilma Flintstone Inspired Bodycon Dress. This pattern was designed for Barbie with a Model Muse body. For more information on the different body types, please visit Crochet Clothes For Your Barbie Doll.

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing. Sew the end of the strap to the edge of the back to form an opening for the arm. Make sure to do so on the same side as the strap so the doll can still wear the dress. Weave in all the ends. Sew 2 snaps at the back to close the dress.
