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

When Ever After High dolls first came out, I always wanted to own Ashlynn Ella because she also loves shoes. She came in a set with a male doll (my first ever!), so I decided to publish a "couple's edition" for Ever After High dolls. While it might take me longer to make, it does provide two different looks that you can make together or separately.

You'll learn how to create:

  • A backless sundress for Ashlynn Ella.
  • A pair of shorts for Hunter the Huntsman.

Ashlynn Ella's Backless Sundress

Pullip Backless Sundress was already published a while back for Pullip dolls with some notes on how to adjust the dress for Barbie dolls. While making this dress for Ever After High dolls, I tried following the notes using a smaller hook. However, it turns out the doll had an even smaller torso than the other two brands; if I did not adjust the pattern, the top would gape on all sides.

So, at this point, I would like to share my notes on how I tweaked the pattern to suit Ever After High dolls. Refer to the original pattern and make the following changes to make your own backless sundress:

Materials and Gauge:

  • Size No. 7 Crochet Steel Hook; and
  • Gauge: 9 Shell Rows = 2 inches.

Pattern:

Skirt:

  • Remove the last increasing Round (Round 7) and just repeat Round 6 until you reach the desired length; and
  • Follow the last Round in the pattern to finish the skirt.

Top:

  • Rows 1-2: Follow the first 2 corresponding Rows in the pattern.
  • Row 3: Skip the original Row 3 and follow Row 4 in the pattern.
  • Rows 4: Work another decreasing Row (simlar to Row 3). (10)
  • Row 5: Follow Row 3 in the pattern. (10)
  • Row 6: Ch 1, sc in the first st, sk 1 st, work 3 dc in the next 2 sts, sc2tog, work 3 dc in the next 2 sts, sk 1 st, sc in the last st, sl st in the end of Row 5, turn. (15)
  • Row 7: Ch 1, sc in the first st, dc in the next 5 sts, sk 1 st, sc in the next st, sk 1 st, dc in the next 5 sts, sc in the last st, sl st in the end of Row 5. Fasten off. (13)

Ties:

  • Work 45 chains for the ties to make it longer. It helps to have longer ties for tying the ribbon later.
  • Sl st in 5 sts, sc3tog, sl st in 5 sts, then ch 45 again.

Ashlynn Ella's Bow Headband

Having been recently hooked to Rainbow Loom, I could not pass up the chance to make something out of rubber bands for my new doll. The tutorial below by Made by Mommy is easy to follow and should be manageable for a beginner loomer.

A Quick Tip

When making charms on the Rainbow Loom (or any type of loom), one difficulty I often encounter is my rubber band snapping during the looping process due to the tightness of having too many bands in a single peg. I found that having a second hook helps (I use one that came free with a rubber band refill). Just use the second hook to loosen the bands on the peg while looping the bands with the main hook. This will reduce the possibility of snapping another band and needing to repeat the whole process again.

  • Sl st = slip stitch; and
  • Inc = increase by working 2 sc in the next stitch.

Hunter the Huntsman's Shorts

This is my first ever pattern for a male doll. From a review someone did on Hunter, Ken's clothes are supposedly interchangeable with Hunter's, so this pattern should also applicable for Ken.
