I never think of doll clothes so as Hurricane Irma approached us in September I decided to whip up a few dresses for my Noo Noo so she could play and forget about the storm.
This dress is a very simple design, you could embellish however you like to make different dresses.
Ww yarn of your choice - I used Red Heart Super Saver in Fruity Stripe & Favorite Stripe
Guage 4sts per inch
Sl st- slip stitch
Hdc- half double crochet
3dcbobble- *yo hook, insert hook into st pull up a loop, pull loop through two loops on hook *repeat 2x, yo draw through all loops on hook
Flo- front loop only
Blo- back loop only
Mirror- mirror crochet How to mirror crochet
All terms American. If pattern reads "sc, sc2tog, 2sc" it would be read as, " single crochet, single crochet 2 stitches together, 2 single crochet in the next stitch", directions are to be repeated to end of row/round unless otherwise noted. As with any pattern, be sure to read through once before beginning, and don't forget to mark your rounds! (I use a bit of contrasting yarn) This is an original design by me, Anna Wilson 2017.
You may do whatever you like with your completed 18" Doll dresses, you can play dress up with your dolls, donate them, sell them, fundraise with them or even give them as a gift! I only ask that you please not claim this pattern as your own, I worked hard to design my 18" Doll dresses :)
