Crochet fashion doll mermaid dress

Ms.Fashionista should have a prom dress and I guess mermaid style would be a perfect fit for her hourglass figures xD

Materials: ( I used )
2mm crochet hook
Cotton crochet thread: variegated lilac, purple
Needle
Scissors

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

      Hi Edwin,
      R20 in the pattern:(4 dc across, inc dc) x 7 times, total 42 sts, sl into 1st stitch to join.
      As you see it should be 6 dcs x 7 = 42 dcs.

  2. I have to pin this, so I can make a gorgeous dress like this for my daughter’s Barbies (when she’s old enough for Barbies). I love how the dress fits the doll perfect, and I love mermaid dresses. This doll looks like she’s about to walk the red carpet! 🙂 Thanks for sharing at the Submarine Sunday Link Party!

    visiting from snickerdoodle linky.. I just have to commend you on your barbie crocheting! I have been sewing for 50 years and I do crochet too. And there isn’t much I haven’t made with some kind of needle and thread…including doll clothes, but one thing I was never able to manage was clothes for barbies. I tried several times, but it was just to hard/complicated….okay, just got tired of working with such small pieces! Your outfit here is fantastic…Good job!
