I used Peach and Cream WW yarn with a 5mm hook.
Notes:
I tried to make a cover for that painted-on bathing suit but it was worse than the p.o.b. :wlol

I made mine with buttons and loops but I would just sc the edges together next time as it will slide on and off anyway.

This is going to require more effort on your part this time…

Tutu Bodice – work in both loops

Row 1: Ch 11 and sc across (10 sc)

Row 2: 3hdc, 7sc across

Row 3: sc across

Row 4: 3hdc, 7 sc

Row 5 -9: sc across

Row 10: sc to last sc – 2sc in last st

Row 11: 2sc in 1st st, sc across

Row 12-13: sc across

Row 14: 4hdc, 8 sc

Row 15 -16: sc across

Row 17: 8 sc, 4hdc

Row 18: sc across

Row 19: 6hdc, 6sc

Row 20 -28 sc across

Row 29: sc decrease, sc across

Row 30: sc, decrease 1 in last stitch(es) (10 sc)

Row31 – 34: sc across

Row 35: 7 sc, 3 hdc

Row 36: sc across

Row 37: 7 sc, 3 hdc

Row 38: sc across.

At this point, either work 4button loops or just join the two edges together. I would recommend the joining. There is enough give and take in this vertical stitching to keep the bodice in place but let it slide off as well.

Complete your closure if needed and put bodice on doll. You need the bodice to stay in place while you prepare to work the crotch area. The front bodice area is that part that is 12 stitches high.

With the bodice on the doll, mark the stitches in both the front and the back where you are going to want to add your crotch piece. I started from the front and worked to the back.

With bodice in hand, attach yarn in the marked stitch and work a crotch piece to fit the area, I decreased a stitch on each side until I was down to two sts and this worked for me but 3 sts would have been fine too. When I got to the back, I just began adding 2 sts per row (generally) until it was large enough to fit the area between my marked stitches on the back. I think I added 1 extra stitch in the last row just so I wouldn’t need another row. Join to bottom of bodice in back.

Add Underskirt – use Cream…
Work FPsc around bottom of Bodice. Work a row of (2dc, ch 1,2dc) shells around bodice. Break off

Mark Centre Front Stitch just above the cream coloured underskirt. You will want to work to a dropped V in the front. You mark the CF st low and then begin your FPsc stitches a couple of rows higher up.

Keeping in mind where you are going, start at CB and work FPsc around bodice forming the V in centre Front.

(Alternative: don’t bother with the V formation and just do a skirt around the bodice just above the underskirt. It won’t have the same impact but it would be easy)

Work 1 row of (2dc, ch 1, 2dc) shells around sc base,

Work 1 row of (3dc, ch1, 3dc)shells in shells from previous row. I did make a special section at CF to emphasize the V form. See what works for you. I expect y’all will make me envious with what you do here.

Toe Shoes… with Peach

(once again, I put in loops to attach the straps but I don’t think I would do that again. I would just thread the “straps” through the shoes where they should go – I am going to skip the parts where I put loops so yours will look simpler than mine. I am going to make this version as well.

at toe…
Chain 2, 6 sc in first chain.
Do not join but work 2sc in each sc around,
Do not join, work 2sc in next st, 1 sc in next st and 2 sc in next st then sc in 11 st ch 1, turn.

Work 6 rows of sc on 11 stitches.

Next 2 rows… as you sc across, work 2 sc decreases in the middle of the sole. Finish off and leave a long tail for sewing the back together. Sew back seam and weave in ends.

Take a long strand of peach yarn doubled and tie as for Toe shoes so that they cross at the heel, in front of the shin and tie behind the knee.

I do not have a problem with people/groups using my patterns to make a little extra money by physically making them and selling the items they make.

However, I do not permit the selling of my patterns for money. I have once given permission for a booklet to be made of them for a charitable sale and I may do so again *if I am asked* and if it is for a church, charity or school type group. But first you have to ask.

Furthermore, If you choose to use my patterns as a money maker, I do not permit my images to be used for any advertizing of your work. You must make your own item and photograph that. These images are as much a part of my Web image as a designer as the patterns are and I reserve that use to myself alone.

You.Are.A.Goddess.

 

I did the February dress the other day, and it's awesome. I'll post in that thread how I did the velcro, btw. Dora's clothes you buy from the store come with velcro, so that's what Ellie is used to.

 

Anyway, I think this will be next on my list. This, or the cheerleader outfit.

These patterns are fantastic!! And they seem to come so easily to you!

 

My 6yo just loves Dora and has asked for this doll. Well, since Valentines is just next week....looks like I know what to get her ;-)

 

She will love having all these outfits for Dora!

 

I've found them all except the first one, the hat and sweater and did I see something about a snowsuit?? .....can you post a link for them, please??

 

Thanks!

Here is the link to the snowsuit but I haven't made a hat and sweater set. There is the Skating outfit (look for "A Perfect 6" in this forum) that has a hat and sweater if that is the one you mean.

Oh, it wouldn't work, Cindy.

 

This doll, while 15" tall, is very uniquely shaped. She has a pokey-out belly and a short torso, so she's really hard to design for.

 

And, clothes that fit other dolls don't fit her at all, and vice versa.

Oh my gosh!!! My 3yo daughter already asked me to make both her and her Dora the valentine's outfit, now this one too. lol. Now I'll have to come up with a bigger version.

Thanks for all the beautiful outfits.

That is so cute, i actually saw that earlier. I am just a little slow, I thought that was a bulky crochet top for you. Now I see the similarities, really neat.

I am starting the 70's big & little dress from groovy crochet for my daughter and a few of her dolls, but I need to finish up some other wip's first. Valentines, birthdays, vacation, you know the drill.

Thanks again so much for sharing!
