*I made an edit , I totally wrote it down wrong, sorry. Everything should be correct now.

This pattern should be easy to scale up or down for other small dolls, you just need to measure the starting chain around the doll and either add or subtract stitches. It is important though to have the number of stitches be even for the V stitch pattern to work. As for the top straps, just divide your new number of stitches by 4 the best you can and make the chains long enough to fit your doll’s shoulders.

Hujoo Baby dress

This pattern is written in American terms.

– Size B / 2.25mm crochet hook

– Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread. It doesn’t say what size it is, but it’s much thicker than size 10 crochet thread and thinner than 5. It is about the thickness of sock weight, or Patons Lace.

Starting with the bodice, the pink part in the picture. Use your main color of yarn. Worked in the round, do not turn.

1. Ch 19, join. (this should leave you with 18 stitches.) Sc around.

2 & 3. Sc around. Ch 2.

4. (1 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next stitch, *skip next stitch. (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in next stitch.*  Repeat ** around. Join to ch 2. Ch 2.

5-7. Repeat row 4. FO

Now with the contrasting yarn, if you choose to use it. Join at the bottom of the skirt where you just finished off, and sc once in every dc and (1 sc, ch 3, join to first ch, 1 sc) in all the ch 2 spaces. Join to beginning of round and FO.

Still in contrasting yarn, turn the dress right side up with the back facing you.(Note: The following “stitches” mentioned are the other side of the starting chain in pink. Sometimes when you work both sides of a chain it leaves small gaps around. Try and crochet through both loops left from the chain if you can. But if this confuses you then don’t worry about it.)

Starting from the center back, join and sc in the next 3 stitches. Ch 10, skip the next 4 stitches, sc in the next 5 stitches, ch 10, skip the next 4 stitches, sc in the next 2. Join. Sc around in all the sc and across each ch 10. Join and FO. Weave in the ends. Yay, you’re done!!

I hope that you can understand this pattern, and as always don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Also, this pattern is completely of my own creation and is for personal use only. I ask that you do not sell this pattern or the items you make from it. Thank you.

Enjoy! Some undies to go with this dress will be up very soon so follow me and check back! I love to hear your comments so don’t be shy!

For Fiona’s hair, I free formed it and didn’t write down the pattern so I will have to look at it and figure out what I did. I should have that up soon.

 

I hope you can read this!! I tried to translate it from my pattern scratch but I have the flu so I’m not at my best today, sorry. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me, I will be glad to help!

Also, this pattern is completely of my own creation (though I do not own the characters Finn or Fiona) and is for personal use only. I ask that you do not sell this pattern or the items you make from it. Thank you.

Isn’t it just my luck that as soon as I decide to start my blog featuring my dolls that something would happen to throw a wrench in it. That something happens to be that the family husky decided that he needed something to chew on, can guess what it was? Yes, it’s true, my Pullip, new Liv, and my brand new, just out of the box, got that night Tangkou. As you can imagine, I am distraught. Those are the only dolls I have and I had a lot of money invested in them. Not to mention that when I came downstairs it looked as though I had walked into a massacre. Limbs strewn across the floor, matted tufts of hair blowing around, mangled bits of who knows what sitting in silent horror! But I think I found all the pieces and put them back together. My Liv and Tangkou are salvageable, but my Pullip’s body is crunched to bits and her face was scratched up really bad, chipping the paint and somehow even breaking her eye mechanism. RIP my lovelies.

As terrible as it is I will still post this tutorial for an easy doll skirt that can be adapted for any kind of doll.

Easy doll skirt

What you need:

  • 2″ wide ribbon, or fabric of your choice
  • size 10 crochet thread in a complementing color
  • size 13 crochet hook. ( I used a very small hook so it would pierce the fabric easily, but you could also use a sharp crochet hook in any size or poke holes first with a large needle or other sharp implement.)
  • scissors
  • sewing machine or needle and thread

1. First you use your doll to measure out how much you need. This is about how it should look once you cut it out. I fold about a cm on the top and the bottom so make you you keep that in mind when measuring for length. Make sure you leave enough room for seam allowance, depending on your sewing skills you may need a lot or a little. If you aren’t sure, or are in experienced sewing small things than it’s better to have more seam allowance. You can always cut off the excess in side to keep things tidy.

2. Cut out two pieces for the skirt. Place the right sides of the fabric together and sew up the sides. Try it on the doll, if it is too loose then sew up one side a little further in to make it smaller. Make sure you secure your stitches at the beginning and ends to make it extra durable. Trim the excess seams and strings to keep things neat.

3. Now it’s time to crochet the trim around the top and bottom. The ribbon I was using frayed very easily so I folded about a cm  inside on the top and bottom and crocheted through it. I recommend doing this, but it is optional. This is what the inside looks like when it is finished.

Sorry for the shadow XD

Now turn your skirt right side out. I just used my crochet hook to poke the holes as I went along, but you could also use a needle or something. Everyone’s skirt will be a little different, so there is no pattern set in stone, but this skirt is very forgiving.

Top Trim

Round 1. On the top I just single crochet around once, join with a slip stitch and finish off.

Bottom Trim

Round 1. On the bottom I single crochet around and join with a slip stitch. Do not turn.

Round 2. Chain 1 and single crochet around again, joining with a slip stitch.

Round 3. Chain 1 and single crochet in same stitch. *Chain 3 and skip the next two stitches, single crochet in the next stitch.* Repeat ** around, chaining 3 and joining with the first single crochet.

Round 4. Chain 1 and single crochet 4 times in all the chain 3 spaces around. Join with slip stitch and finish off.

Now you should have a cute new skirt! I really hope this tutorial helps and makes sense! Feel free to ask if you have any questions. And let me know if you make a skirt for your doll, I would love to see.

I’ll have more patterns and tutorials coming up so check back soon!

Yesterday I went to Tuesday Morning and found a Liv doll for $9.99 and thought she would make a great addition to my growing collection of dolls as she has similar joints to the early Pullip body types and has a similar ratio to my Pullip and Tangkou dolls.

I only have two more months to finish Christmas presents?!?!?

She is modeling a Christmas inspired dress that I made based on this free pattern from an awesome crochet for Barbie blog. I used a size 10 crochet hook with size 10 crochet thread and just single crochet all the way up the back instead of adding snaps. It fits perfectly on a Liv doll and is ok fitting on a Tangkou, but is much too big for my Pullip type 4 body. Doesn’t she look lovely?

I hope we get snow this year…
