Heart 12 Inch Doll Dress

Posted on August 15, 2014

Here is my I Heart Doll Dress crocheted to fit a 12 inch soft-body baby doll.
I Heart 12 inch Doll Dress

This little dress was crocheted using my baby doll bunting pattern and just making changes to convert the pattern into a dress. I also used the reverse single crochet stitch for the trim on the neck, sleeves, and hem. If you are not familiar with the reverse single crochet stitch, it is also known as the crab stitch and makes a nice finished trim on a crocheted item.

The final touch on the baby doll dress is a little heart I crocheted. I just love how it added that extra special look to the doll dress. I hope you enjoy my free crochet doll dress pattern and please let me know if you have any questions as you work the pattern below.
