Crocheted American Girl Doll Dress Pattern

I cannot believe how hooked I have become on crocheting recently! I have been busy making crocheted American Girl Doll dresses. I found a pattern HERE, and I altered it slightly. Today I will be sharing my full crocheted American Girl Doll Dress pattern with the alterations I did with you.  If you want to see the other dress that I made with this same pattern, you can click HERE.

This project uses a simple double crochet stitch and chain stitch.  I am also going to show you how once you know the basics of the pattern, you can alter and vary it to really make the pattern your own.

Row 8:  Ch 2,
turn. 1 dc in each dc until the end.but at the end of this row, you will join
the dress in a circle. You will do this by joining with a slip stitch to the ch

You will now be working in rounds for the remainder of the dress.

turn, work 1 dc in same space as ch 2, 2 dc in each stitch around until the

Row 11- 18: Ch 3, work 1
dc in next stitch and each around, join with a slip stitch to your chain.

Fasten off and weave in ends.  The completed skirt has 10 rows.  It can be made shorter or longer if you choose.  You could also vary this pattern by changing the colors for some of the rows of the skirt to make it striped, or add a ruffle.

Sew a button with your yarn tail to the top of the back to fasten. Simply push through the stitches on the other side to secure.

  1. Ummm, hi. I would like to crochet this pattern for actual baby's and baby dolls, what age do you think this will fit? I am not a parent.

    1. I would find the measurements for an American Girl Doll and see what size child that compares to since this dress was made for that size doll.
