Barbie Dress - 3 Row Ruffle Dress



Good morning all!

Back on the Barbie outfit kick lately. Yes, I admit it, I just love making little dresses for dolls. Too much fun!

Today's pattern is the first in a series of dresses I've been working on lately, that are all strapless, and all use 4ply (Fingering or Sock weight yarns) yarn. I personally use snaps for closing the back of these, but you could use Velcro or hook and eye closures.

The best part about these dresses is how fast they are to whip up! Gotta love an afternoon project.

Today's dress is a fun party dress with rows of ruffles! I made it with one variegated colour, but you could easily add some dazzle by changing the ruffles to another colour, or even make an ombre dress with each ruffle a different shade!



You will need: 
2.5mm hook
4ply/sock/Fingering yarn in a main colour
Both pieces of a press stud to close

1: Ch31, sc in the second chain from hook and each across. -30

2: Ch1, turn, sc in the first 12 stitches, 2sc in each of the next 2 stitches, sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc in each of the next 2 stitches, sc in the last 12 stitches. -34

3-5: Ch1, turn, sc in each stitch across. -34

6: Ch1, turn, sc in the first 12 stitches, sc2tg 5 times, sc in the last 12 stitches. -29

7: Ch1, turn, sc in the first 12 stitches, sc2tg, sc in the next stitch, sc2tg, sc in the last 12 stitches. -27

8: Ch1, turn, sc2tg, sc in the next 23 stitches, sc2tg. -25

9-14: Ch1, turn, sc in each stitch across. -25

15: Ch1, turn, sc in each stitch across, join to the ch1. We'll be working in rounds from here.

16: Ch1, sc in each stitch around, join. -25

17: Ch1, *sc in the next 4 stitches, 2sc in the next stitch*, repeat around, join. -30

18: Ch1, sc in each stitch around, join. -30

24: Ch1, sc in the back loop only of each stitch around, join.

25: Ch1, sc in each stitch around, join. -45

26-27: Repeat rounds 24 and 25

28: Ch1, 3sc in each stitch around, join. End off and weave in tail.

29: Rejoin your yarn on one of the unused loops from round 26, towards the back of the dress. Ch1, 3sc in each stitch around, join. End off, weave in tails.

30: Rejoin your yarn on one of the unused loops from round 24, towards the back of the dress. Ch1, 3sc in each stitch around, join. End off, weave in tails.

Sew your snaps on the back and weave in tails from that and you are done!
