Curvy Barbie Flutter Sleeve Bodycon Dress (Free Crochet Pattern)

Author:

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

Curvy Barbie Flutter Sleeve Bodycon Dress

Having received some feedback from my Curvy Barbie Chevron Dress pattern, I wanted to make something more skintight to show off the curvy Barbie's body. Since my older Barbie (non-curvy) patterns all began with basic designs, I thought I would go back to the beginning and work on a simple bodycon dress, but with a more modern twist to it with the added flounce sleeves. If you want to make a similar dress for a regular Barbie doll, please visit Barbie Simple Sheath Dress.

This article is for a Curvy Barbie Flounce Sleeve Bodycon Dress. It is made to fit a curvy Barbie doll. For more information on the different body types of Barbie, please visit Crochet Clothes For Your Barbie Doll.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many millimeters is the Number 1 size hook?

Answer: 2.25mm, I think. My hook doesn't actually have measurements on it, just a number to indicate its size.

I have made this pattern several times and have so much fun with it! I make different variations such as adding a ruffle in a different color or adding length and making a mermaid dress. Please keep the patterns coming for the curvy Barbie!!! Thanks
