Give your Barbie a brand new wardrobe with this adorable Little Black Dress crochet pattern.  The great thing about this design is that you could really use it to make everything from a bathing suit top to a full dress, just by learning when to stop crocheting...so really you're getting 8 patterns in 1!  Now that's one bargain that Barbie would be proud of!  Have enough LBD's in the Barbie wardrobe?  Create a beautiful dress in any color you'd like.  This is a great stashbuster project for your yarn collection, and these one-of-a-kind dresses make wonderful gifts for the little girl in your life.

Barbie Dress Crochet Pattern

Materials:

  • Crochet Cotton Thread (I used Circulo Clea, but you can use any brand you prefer)
  • 1.7mm crochet hook
  • 1-2 - 1/4" snaps, or your choice of fastener
  • Stitch marker

 

Instructions:
This pattern is worked from the top down.  Starting after row 7, you can stop after any row.  I have suggested 4 stopping points for different top lengths and 4 stopping points for dress lengths.  It uses one-two snap fasteners in the back.
