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

Make a chevron cami dress for Barbie!

After I finished making this design, I realized that I used the same exact shade of yellow in Barbie Strapless Pencil Dress, which was my first attempt at incorporating the chevron pattern in a modern dress for Barbie. I have wanted to create a pattern that uses the chevron pattern throughout the entire outfit, instead of just having the pattern in the skirts.

Since it was easier to correct mistakes with no color changes, I made the entire dress in just one color. I realized after finishing the dress that I will need to rewrite some lines in order to incorporate more colors (to make the transitions easier), and decided to just save that bit for a different project with the same basic chevron pattern.

This was made specifically for a Barbie Model Muse body type. For more information on the different body types of Barbie, please visit Crochet Clothes For Your Barbie Doll.
