  • crochet hook – I used 3.00 mm one
  • needle to sew on the buttons

stitches used: chain (ch), slip stitch (sl) & single crochet (sc)

Start with a ch, long enough to go around doll’s chest. Make sure the chain is not twisted and connect it with a sl.

Work sc until the end of the round, then continue with sc for about 7 more rounds.


  1. Start a mesh pattern: work 5 ch, skip 1 stitch in the foundation, make sc into the next chain, repeat until the end of the round.
  2. In the next round make 5 ch, skip 3 stitches in the foundation, make sc into the middle of the mesh chain, repeat until the end of the round.
  3. Repeat this mesh pattern for as many rounds as required to make the dress long enough. I made 12 mesh rounds.


  1. Sew on two buttons on the front of the dress.
  2. In the same position as the buttons, but on the back of the dress, add the straps. Make each of them 3-5 sc wide, turn and repeat until the straps are long enough to go across the doll’s back to the front where the buttons are.
  3. Finish each strap with a chain loop for the buttons.


This is my first attempt to write down crochet pattern so please forgive me and don’t hesitate to correct me if there are any mistakes.

    Worked this pattern up tonight for a bear I crocheted for a christmas present for my mom it worked up quick and easy and fit the bear perfect! It looks so cute!

  12. Sharon Mitchell says:

    what size is this geared for? I just found this and have 3 new grand nieces. Will be looking for dolls and making outfits for birthday#1!

  13. There is no specific size, you start with the chain long enough to go around the doll chest, so it can any size really…

  14. i used to make soft sculpture dolls, and still have several but dressing them is limited to preemie clothes. I’m going to start crocheting them since seeing this darling pattern. But my skills are still in the beginning phase, and I don’t know what the mesh stitch is. Can you provide directions or direct me somewhere to find some instructions. I would love more patterns. Thanks for sharing.

  15. I made a couple of these over the weekend for 18″ dolls tops.Instead of making a circle I made a crochet strip to fit around chest (chain 40,13 rows SC,then join),this was using 4 ply yarn and an “H” hook. One I made a green top and varigated bottom,the other I made solid pink.They both turned out really cute .
