Simple, Simple, Simple is what this little dress is. I made it in less than two hours and my granddaughter will love it. I started it with the same pattern as the Barbie tutu and just added the skirt. I used a size 2 crochet hook, a 1 inch green pony tail holder and of course white and green yarn.
St Paddy's Barbie Dress
Round one: With green yarn, work 30 single crochet stitches around the green pony tail holder, join with a sl st in the first sc.
2nd round: Chain 2 then Double crochet
3rd round: Chain 2 then Double crochet in the next stitch, dc2 tog: continue this same pattern: At the end of the round, you should have decreased to a total of 11 stitches.
Continue double crocheting until bodice measures 2 1/2 inches.
Change to white yarn-
Round one with white yarn: Triple crochet two times in each stitch (chain one between each triple) Triple Crochet for the next four rounds ( Skirt should measure about 2 1/2 inches) tie off.
For necking, using white yarn single crochet around the pony tail holder, tie off. Lay dress flat to determine the location of the neck ties.
First neck tie; Single Crochet 3 stitches, turn, single crochet two stitches, turn, single crochet one stitch, then chain 25 stitches, tie off.
Repeat for second tie. (I skipped five stitches between the ties for the front neckline).
Work in loose thread. I also found a little shamrock button and sewed it on the waist of the dress.
So simple and super cute!!
