Crochet Barbie dress free pattern – sundress

I made this as a sundress because that’s as much yarn as I had. I was aiming for ball gown, but my daughter loves this one just the same.

I’ve also been thinking that I need to broaden my patterns to be a little more visually interesting, so here we go. Again, apart from the 30 sc around the elastic, the entire rest of the pattern is copyrighted by me, Anna Merlini. You can use it to make your own Barbie sundresses if you give me credit for the pattern and link back to this blog. You can’t use my pattern to make Barbie dresses to sell.

Crochet Barbie Sundress Pattern

You will need a #4 and #7 crochet hook and a hair elastic 1 inch in diameter. You only need one ball of yarn.

The bodice part of the dress is crocheted into the BACK LOOP ONLY of every sc and hdc.

Rnd 1- Using the #4 hook, put 30 sc in the elastic, join to first sc with sl st. After this there will be no joining so you may want to mark the end of your rounds.
Rnd 2- hdc in first sc, 2 hdc in next sc. (hdc in first 2 sc, 2 hdc in next sc) around. 40 hdc
Rnd 3- hdc in ea hdc around. 40 hdc
Rnd 4- (hdc in first 2 hdc, hdc2tog) around. 30 hdc *NOTE: to hdc2tog, hook yarn over needle, dip into the back loop of the hdc, pull up yarn (like a normal hdc so far) but don’t pull it through the loops on the needle. Dip hook into back loop of 2nd hdc, wrap yarn, pull through, now pull yarn through all 4 loops on needle.
Rnds 5-9: hdc in ea hdc around

Switch to #7 hook but remain in back loops only
Rnd 10- hdc in ea hdc around

From now until the end of the dress you will be working through BOTH loops of the hdc
Rnd 11- (hdc in first 2 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc) around. 40 hdc
Rnds 12-13: hdc in ea hdc around.
Rnd 14- (hdc in first 3 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc) around. 50 hdc
Rnds 15-17: hdc in ea hdc around.
Rnd 18- (hdc in first 4 hdc, 2 hdc in next hdc) around. 60 hdc
Rnds 19-25: hdc in ea hdc around. When you come to the end of the 25th round, make 8 sc, then 4 sl st, then finish and weave in ends.

  1. This is so nice. I used to have a book of patterns for Barbie and then they changed her shape. I should dig that out and see if I can still do them. I am sure that with a few simple changes they will fit the new Barbie.
