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 Party Dress for Barbie!

It has been a while since I last made a ruffled dress for Barbie, so I thought it was about time to make one again. Neck ruffles on Barbie clothes is on-trend in stores, so I wanted to incorporate them by using the same ruffle design on the neck and the skirt. The underskirt for this pattern is actually a bubble skirt. Without the bubble skirt base, the dress was too flouncy and kept moving around on the doll. For an actual bubble dress, you can visit Barbie V-Neck Bubble Dress.

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