Curvy Barbie crochet shorts and top







I've amended my barbie shorts pattern on this site to fit the lovely Curvy Barbie.  Plus added a new top with a trendy frill across the shoulders.

I used Patons Soft cotton 4ply from my stash but any 4ply would do.  Both the shorts and top can easily be lengthened by adding a few more rows.
I use UK crochet terms for a conversion chart click here

Crochet dresses for tall and curvy Fashionista Barbie





Several of my visitors have asked for patterns for the new Curvy and Tall Fashionista Barbie dolls, so I've adjusted my most popular crochet dress for the dolls.  i'll have a look at the other Barbie patterns on this site and see if I can amended them to fit the new dolls so watch this space!

The bodice of the dress is made first in dc rounds then the skirt is worked along the bottom hem in trebles.  The tall doll has a longer waist than the original Barbie, but lengthening the torso looked a bit odd so I kept the same and made the skirt longer.  

Curvy Barbie - it was difficult to dress the doll with the original style of pull on dress even though I had added quite a few extra stitches.  For ease of fit I worked the last two rounds of the bodice in rows leaving a small back opening which is shaped a little.  If you prefer omit the shaping and add a small button.

If there are any mistakes in this pattern, or you have any queries please leave a comment below or contact me.


A matching bag can be found here   Crochet bag

Materials: 25g  4ply yarn( I used Patons Soft Cotton 4ply)  Cotton thread isn't suitable as its too fine. For the two colour dress you will also need about 10g of contrast.
Crochet hook no 3.50 (or size to match tension)
Tension: (Gauge) 24sts x 26 rows to 4” over dc using 3.50 hook (check your tension and use suitable size hook)
Abbreviations:
Dc: double crochet (US single crochet), tr: treble crochet, (US double crochet)
ch: chain, slst: slip stitch, inc: increase
Notes:
This dress is a close fit so any differences in yarn weight will make a smaller or
larger garment.
Work through the back loop only for a softer fabric

Barbie two colour sundress and bag




Here's another sundress for Barbie.  This is a version on my earlier sundress but I've jazzed it up a bit.  I've also added a hairband - just make enough chains to fit round the doll's head then work a round of dc.

The dress is a pull on, great for small hands, has a shaped bodice and worked in one piece from the top down. Make sure the bodice is a tight fit so it stays put, or you could make straps as in my other summer dress pattern.  


Please leave me a comment if you make this item  - i value feedback.
