Heirloom Doll Dress Pattern

Now that you have made your Heirloom Crochet Doll, you will want to make a crochet doll dress of every color to go along with it. This little dress works up so fast and is the perfect addition to an heirloom doll gift.

I have several doll dress designs drawn out for the Heirloom Doll, but I decided to start with a dress that does not require any buttons or Velcro to fasten it around the doll. This makes it safer for young children, like my 22 month old daughter.

Before You Start Crocheting

This pattern was designed for a doll that was worked up with a Size E hook or that matches the gauge listed on the doll pattern. If you did not check your gauge or you used a different hook size, that is OK! You may just need to play around with your hook size for the dress.

Once you complete rows 1-24 you will want to make sure the bodice fits snugly around the doll. If it doesn’t, you have two options. If it is too small, you will need to rework the rows with a larger hook. If it is too large, you can rework the rows with a smaller hook or overlap the two edges when you sew the back of the dress together.

Once you figure out the right hook size for this dress, remember that hook size so that you can continue using it for all future doll clothes patterns.

The Embroider Skirt

A while ago I asked my crochet Facebook Group, what of craft they would like to learn. The majority wanted to learn how to embroider on crochet. Since then, I have been experimenting with embroidery.

I will be doing a series of videos on embroidering on crochet in the very near future. The first video I will do is how to embroider the flowers and stems onto this dress. Make sure to follow me on Youtube to see when that video is released.

      That is wonderful. They were based off a doll my grandmother made me. I truly think they make the most remarkable gifts.
