Free Crochet Barbie Dress Pattern.
This quick barbie dress is perfect for her summer wardrobe. It features an open lace around the waist area for a nice touch of fashion. This open lace also allows for a cute belt if you like.
The pattern is given for the 11.5″ barbie doll, however, in a simple multiple of three you could crochet this for basically any doll you want.
I used a DK weight yarn, but if crocheting this for larger dolls, you could use any yarn and hook size that you have on hand.
