Easy Crochet baby dress | Bag O Day Free Crochet Tutorial #662 Subtitles Available


hi everybody this is crystal so today I’m
going to show you how to make this dress
baby dress here now this is newborn size it’s size for a newborn I have a newborn
doll that I sized it for I tried it on and it fits perfect but I don’t have any
other sizes available I only have the newborn so this is what
it looks like I know you know this but I still have to say it remember never
leave baby unattended with roses or ribbons or anything like that if you’re
not gonna you can leave that stuff off if you want or you get this use this for
a photo prop but make sure if you put this on baby to watch out for these
because they can’t come off I know you know that but I just had to say it
anyways newborn size only size I have available I don’t have any diaper covers
or anything to match it not at the moment but like I said you can leave
that ribbon and ribbon roses off if you want here’s the stitch I think it’s
really pretty it’s kind of a star shape there I guess it’s not really that hard
to do I think that uh advanced beginner probably could do this hardest part was
getting that ribbon on there believe it or not and then it’s gonna have hook and
eye closures in the back to hold it together I just didn’t have any matching
thread so I cannot put that on there so you don’t have any babies in your family
that’s okay I made this for a doll dress for my daughter if you have any
granddaughters daughters that use doll dresses good size for a doll dress don’t
have any granddaughters or daughters for doll dresses a lot of people make these
and donate them to hospitals to give to people that have newborns so you know or
anything like donate at other places so there’s always room for place
for a real pretty cute baby dress so and it’s got some edging at the bottom shell
edging lets go ahead and get started on this want too let’s do it okay for this project I
use Caron simply soft speckle now it is a 100% acrylic medium weight number four
you do not have to use this yarn any medium weight number four will work
there’s 235 yards per skein and this is my second skein
I’m gonna say you’re gonna need about 300 320 yards of your main color the
color I have is called Snapdragon and then I edged it with the same yarn only
white not much of that maybe 30 yards 50 this to be you know just to say but
probably like 30 yards not much at all at that but this is the same just white
also if you want to you’re gonna need some ribbon this is 3/8 inch ribbon
these are ribbon roses ribbon and ribbon roses both came from my local Walmart in
the ribbon aisle right down from the buttons and then you’re gonna need some
hook and eye closures for the back again these came from Walmart across in the
same aisle the button aisle across from the buttons is where mine were located
three of these for the back you’re going to need some matching thread and a
sewing needle to sew these on and also a matching thread and sewing needle for
your ribbon roses if you choose to sew them on also and I’m going to be using a
size H which is a 5 millimeter crochet hook ok the gauge on this is 15 single
crochets across equal 4 inches and 18 a rows of single crochet equal 4 inches ok
we’re going to go ahead and we’re going to start off with a chain of 44 chains
now once you get your chain of 44 done we are going to do one double crochet in
the fourth stitch from the hook now remember we do not count the one that’s
on the hook so one two three and then the fourth stitch we’re going to double
crochet and now we’re going to work along the chain putting one double
crochet in every stitch just like this so Row one one double in
every stitch until you get to the end of the row alright I have made it to the end of Row
1 and now you should have a total of 42 stitches and that includes this little
chain here on the end he counts as a stitch so counting him you’ll have a
total of 42 now at the end of Row 1 so for Row 2 we are going to chain 3 which
counts as a double crochet and then we’re going to turn our work now what we
want to do is we want to have two double crochets in a row and then the next
stitch we will put two double crochets into the same stitch so this chain 3
counts as our first double crochet so we are going to double crochet into the
next stitch we’re not going into this very first stitch because that’s what
the chain 3 count says we’re going to go into the next one and we’re going to do
a double crochet so counting that chain 3 there’s two double crochets in a row
now the next stitch we’re going to put two double crochets in the same stitch so there’s one and two and now that’s what we’re going
to repeat for Row 2 we’re going to put one double crochet in each of the next
two stitches so there’s one into the next and then one into the next and then
the next stitch we will put two double crochets into the same stitch like that
and we’re going to keep repeating that until we get to the end so I’ll do it
one more time one double crochet in each of the next two stitches so there’s one
double into the next and then one double into the next and then the next stitch
is going to get two doubles into the same stitch so I’m just going to keep repeating that
one double one double two doubles one double one double two doubles all the
way until we get to the end of row two all right I’m coming to the end of row
two and you should be able to finish out a complete repeat so I just did two
double crochets in a row and then my last stitch is actually this little
chain here on the end we’re going to put two double crochets into the top of that
and that will end row two there we go and they at the end of row
two you should have a total of 56 stitches okay now we’re going to start
on Row 3 we are going to chain three which again counts as a double crochet
turn our work now this time we want to have three double crochets in a row and
then we want to have two double crochets into the next stitch so since this
counts as our first double crochet we’re going to put one double crochet into the
next two so there’s one and there’s two now counting that chain three we have
three double crochets in a row now the next stitch we’re going to put two
doubles into the same stitch like this okay now we’re going to repeat that
again one double crochet in each of the next three stitches so there’s one two and three and then the next stitch
will put two double crochets into the same stitch again one double crochet in
each of the next three stitches there’s one and two and three and then we get
two double crochets into the next stitch so now that’s the repeat now for round
or for Row three one double one double one double two doubles one double one
double one double two doubles all the way until we get to the end of the row
all right I’ve made it to the end and again you should be able to do a
complete repeat so I just did three double crochets in a row and I’m going
to end by putting two double crochets into the top of that last chain three like that and now at the end of row
three you should have a total of 70 stitches okay we’re gonna move on and to
row four and again we’re gonna start with the chain three which counts as a
double crochet and we’re gonna turn our work now we want to put four double
crochets in a row and then two double crochets in the next so this counts as
our first double crochet so we’ll go ahead and double crochet into the next
stitch remember not the very first one the next one double crochet and then
double crochet into the next and then one more time into the next so counting
that chain 3 there is 4 double crochets in a row now the next stitch is going to
be 2 doubles into the same stitch and that’s what we’re going to repeat now
for Row 4 1 double crochet in each of the next four stitches so there’s 1 2 3 and four and then the next stitch is
going to be two doubles into the same stitch and that’s the pattern we’re
going to repeat now for row four one double onto the next four stitches
there’s one two three four and then two doubles into the next so I’m going to
repeat this pattern until I get to the end of the row one double into the next
four and then two doubles into the next all the way to the end all right I have
made it to the end of row four and you should have ended with a complete repeat
so two double crochets there into that last stitch and now you have a total of
84 stitches at the end of row four now row five is going to be where we start
the armholes it’s not hard so what we’re going to do is chain three like always
which counts as a double crochet and then we’re going to turn our work now we
want to do one double crochet into the next 11 stitches so counting this double
crochet it will have a total of 12 so not in the very first stitch but the
next one we’re gonna do 11 in a row there’s one two three okay so there’s 11 and then if we count
that chain 3 will have a total of 12 double crochets there now we are going
to do a chain of two one two and we’re going to skip the next 18 stitches and then the next one so we skipped 18
here’s my 18th one in the next one with this chain two on my hook I’m gonna go
ahead and double crochet into that next one like that so that’s our first
armhole now we want to do one double crochet into the next twenty-four so
this double crochet that we just did count as number one so counting that one
we want to do 24 in the row so there’s 1 2 3 4 5 ok so I’ve got my 24 stitches
there in a row across the front now what I’m gonna do is a chain of two again and
I want to skip the next 18 stitches just like we did on the other side 18 and then the next one with that chain
two still on our hook we’re gonna go ahead and double crochet in that next
one and that is our second armhole now we’re going to go ahead and finish out
double crocheting in the remaining stitches we should have 12 so this
counts as number one two three and here’s 12 in the top of that chain 3
and that’ll end row row 5 and now you should have a 48 stitches and that is
not counting these stitches here of the armhole so you got your 12 here and then
you got your 24 in the front and then you got your 12 on the other side so
those these right here the armhole don’t count will work with them later and then
you’ll have your two chain two spaces okay now what we’re going to do is we
are going to end round five by slip stitching into the first chain three
over here so we’re going to go ahead and we’ve got our work fold and we’re going
to go in and and by slip stitching it into this first chain three here on this
side that’s how we end row five so now our piece is slip stitched
together and we’ll use our hook and eye closures to close this up later so we’re
going to be working in rounds now for the remainder of the dress because we’re
going to be working on the skirt part now so for Row one or actually this
would be round six this was row five so we’re gonna start working out around so
round six so I’m just going to start saying rounds now we are going to chain
one we will not be turning our work anymore either
we are going to go right back into that same stitch and single crochet now the
next stitch we are going to do a shell now this is how we do the shell right
into the very next stitch we’re going to do a double crochet chain one another
double crochet chain one and then another double crochet like that so
that’s the shell double chain one double chain one double all into the same
stitch and now I’m going to single crochet into the next stitch now this is
going to become very tight and very ruffly but that’s a that’s what you want
that’s that’s what will give your dress a little bit of a ruffle and then we’re
going to shell into the next so we do a double chain one and then a double chain
one and then another double all into the same stitch and then we single crochet
into the next like that and that’s what we’re gonna repeat all the way around
shell into the next which is one double chain one one double chain one and then
one more double and then single crochet into the next
shell into the next double chain one double chain one and double and single
crochet into the next and as you can see it’s looking really tight don’t worry
about that that’s fine that’s what we want so we’re going to keep doing this
until we get to our chain two space here I’m almost there so I’m just gonna
continue here working my shell single crochet repeat all the way around so I’m in my chain to space now so the
last thing I did was a shell so in this chain to space I’m just going to count
these chain twos as stitches so I’m going to put in the first one a single
crochet since I just ended in the shell and in the next one I’m going to put a
shell I’m just going into the chain space that now the next stitch will be a
single crochet and it gets really tight here you want to make sure you pull it
apart and get that very first stitch since we just ended in the shell this one
will be a single single crochet so I’m gonna keep repeating the shell single
crochet repeat all the way around when I get to my next chain two space I’m just
going to treat it just go along doing the same pattern just like we did over
here until we get back to our starting point alright I am coming to the end of
round six now my last stitch should have been a shell and I’m going to end with
slip stitching into my first single crochet over here that we did and you
should have a total of 26 shells now remember I said that if it’s all roughly
and looking weird that’s fine it’s gonna look like that you’ll look better later
I hope anyways because I’m kind of just winging it so so now what we’re gonna do
is we’re going to start round 7 so since we just slip stitch into a single
crochet now we’re going to start with the shell on the next round so we’re
gonna chain 1 and we’re gonna go back into that same stitch that we slip
stitched into and we’re going to work a shell so we’re going to work a double
chain one a double chain one and then a double now we are going to skip the
first double crochet of the next Shell and in the middle double crochet of the
next Shell we are going to single crochet like that and now we’re going to
skip the last double crochet of the same shell this one and then right down here in
this single crochet from the previous row we are going to do a shell into that
single crochet double chain one double chain one and double and that’s what
we’re gonna repeat for a round seven here’s the here’s to shell in the
previous round we are going to single crochet in the middle stitch of that
shell so we’re skipping this one double crochet and then the next one which will
be the middle stitch of the shell we’re gonna single crochet into it and then we
are going to shell right down here into the single crochet from the previous row
so we’re skipping there’s a double crochet last double crochet of this show
going down here to the single crochet and working a shell so double chain one
double chain one and double and that’s what we’re gonna repeat all the way
around for round seven single crochet in the middle stitch of the shell in the
previous round and then we are going to shell right down here into the next
single crochet from the previous round single crochet in the middle double
crochet from the next shell of the previous round and then shell in the
next single crochet right down here from the previous round so I’m going to keep
repeating this now all the way around until I get back to my starting point all right I’m coming to the end of round
seven now your last stitch should have been a single crochet in the middle
stitch of this shell in the previous round now we’re going to end by slip
stitching into the first double crochet of our first shell from the previous
round and you should still have 26 shells you’ll always have 26 shells now
we’re going to start round eight what we’re going to do is we need to slip
stitch to this middle stitch of the very first shell so we’re gonna slip stitch
into the chain space the next chain space and then into the middle stitch so
we slip stitched two times there after the very ending slip stitch and now
we’re going to start again we are going to chain one and now this time since
we’re in the middle of the shell we have to start with a single crochet into that
same stitch and then we are going to shell into the next single crochet from
the previous round so we’re skipping this double crochet and right down here
we shell into that single crochet so it’s pretty much the same thing we’re
just starting the rows different and ending them different now we’re going to
single crochet in the middle stitch of the next shell so this double crochet
right here and then we are going to shell into the
next single crochet from the previous round so we skip this double crochet of
this shell and right down here in this single crochet we’re going to work a
shell so I am going to repeat this pattern here on round eight all the way
around until I get back to the beginning and this is what is starting to look
like and remember it’s okay if it’s still a little roughly longer it gets
the less roughly it’ll be kind of makes a little star if you look at it closely
right through here we’re just going to keep repeating that
pattern until you get around here to the end of round eight all right now when
you come to the end of round eight what we are gonna do you should end it there
with the shell and then we are going to slip stitch into the very first single
crochet that we did 26 shells still always 26 now you want to repeat rounds
seven and eight they’re pretty much the same except for the way they start than
the way they end seven and eight you keep repeating that until you get your
dress as long as you want it to be now I have done a total of twenty-four all
together that is starting from round one so one two
I guess row one two three four five and then we started counting rounds at six
seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirty put it all the way down to 24
remember up here is number one all the way down to 24 okay
so round 1 24 that’s how many I did I’m gonna do a row of edging now so I’m
gonna go ahead and end go ahead and tie off that yarn there now I’m switching
colors you don’t have to of course if you don’t want to that’s up to you so
I’m gonna start on the back of my work here kind of right here where I left off
I’m gonna use some white now you can you know you know you can don’t
have to put an edge on it you can use the same color whatever you want
but I want to go with some white and I am going to start in the same stitch
that I just stopped in that single crochet I’m gonna go into it draw up a loop
I’m gonna chain one and I’m gonna single crochet into that single crochet now
this is my edging this is row around twenty-five edging round now I’m going
to go to the middle of this shell right here so we skip that double crochet we
go to the middle double crochet and I’m gonna work an edging shell and what that
is is it going to be five double crochets all together into the same
stitch so this is the shell that we put on our edging it’s different than the
shell that we were doing for the main portion of the dress so I got five of
those all into the same stitch like that now white is bright and then I’m going
to go over here and I’m gonna skip the double crocheted of that shell and I’m
going to come down here to the single and I’m gonna put a single on top of
that single so this edging is made just a little different and then
what we did the rest of it so I’m going to come over here to the next shell from
the previous row in the middle stitch right here so we’re skipping this double
of the shell we’re working in the middle stitch and we’re gonna not we’re not
going to put a single into it like we normally would we’re gonna put a shell
into it at an edging shell so it’s gonna be five double crochets all together
into the same stitch like that and then I’m going to jump
down here to this single crochet from the previous round and I’m going to put
a single crochet into it just like that so that’s what the edging the light the
white and the light makes it really hard to see I guess I apologize so that’s
what the edging is going to look like so again we’re going to jump to this shell
in the previous row and in the middle stitch we’re gonna work our edging shell
which is five double crochets into the same stitch and then we’re gonna jump right down
here to the single crochet from the previous row and we’re going to single
crochet right into it now that’s the pattern I’m going to repeat all the way
around jump to the next shell the middle stitch and we’re going to work five
double crochets into it there’s one two three four five and then the single
crochet down here from the previous row we’re going to work a single crochet
right on top of it like that so I’m going to continue doing this all the way
around until I get back to my starting point alright I’m coming to the end
should have 26 shells here 13 shells I just finished my last shell
now I’m going to end the round by slip stitching into my first single crochet
and I’m gonna tie off a lot of tails to hide okay
okay so I’m gonna work a little edging across the collar and across the sleeves
so first thing I’m gonna do is work across the collar so go ahead and you
put your dress to where it’s facing this is the back where it opens but it’s the
right side so I’m gonna be working a reverse single crochet across the collar
and across the sleeves so reverse single crochet is the same as single crochet
except for you work it opposite so you want to go ahead and start right here
I’m right-handed so for me to work opposite I would start on this side of
my work or i crochet right-handed so to start in that first stitch there and
I’m going to just draw up a loop in that first stitch and I’m going to chain one
now I’m going to do is work a single crochet in every stitch all the way
around the collar but remember I’m working in a reverse
I’m going the opposite direction of what I normally would it’s it’s still a
single crochet you go into that next stitch they’re
just like normal but you’re just working it in Reverse it just makes it kind of a
cute little little nice little edging it makes fun it on your items see I’m just
going in every stitch it is a bit awkward at first I guess but once you
get the hang of it it’s you know go by quick I am putting a single crochet in
every stitch I’m just working the opposite direction some people call this the crab stitch
maybe you’ve heard it called that I don’t usually call it that always is
called reverse single crochet that’s what I’m doing just working a single
crochet in the opposite direction I’m a little slower at it because I’m not used
to working this way this direction but it’s real easy it’s just one single
crochet in every stitch all the way across the collar yeah and it just makes that cute little
edging their kinda where it’s a light kind of blinding in with that white kind
of words like I don’t know I always think it looks kind of like a rope or
something but I’m gonna do this all the way around the collar here until I get
to my last stitch and then I’ll meet back up with you remember one single
crochet and every stitch just working it in the opposite direction is normal okay so I’m coming to the end here and
right here in my last stitch I’m going to slip stitch that off and that i will go ahead and tie that off then and you’ll have to go back and hide that tail okay so you should have
if you count this slip stitch as a stitch and the chain one as a stitch
you’ll have 42 because that’s what we started with in the beginning
isn’t that cool I like the reverse single crochet it looks really neat
so now we’re gonna do the same thing on the sleeves just to kind of make it
match so remember we just got to work in the opposite direction as we normally
would so let’s see we’ll start with this sleeve and we will start on this side
and work our way over so now remember back in the beginning when we were doing
the sleeve so we skipped 18 stitches okay I want to start in this stitch
right here that this double crochet is attached to this one has nothing in it
so yeah this one right here has this double crochet in it I want to start in
that one and I’m gonna pull my yarn through now that’s not one of the 18
that we skipped we want to chain one and now we’re going to put a reverse single
crochet over the next 18 stitches that we skipped so we do it the same way just
go through backwards working a single crochet and those 18 that we skipped okay why don’t you get across the 18
that you skipped this stitch right here that has the single crochet in it right
here on the end we’re gonna go ahead and slip stitch into that you see it right
there it’s been worked already but or a double crochet I’m sorry it’s got that
double crochet in it it’s been worked we’re gonna go ahead and slip stitch
into that it’s hard to slip stitch of these
reversing or crochets for me anyways like that now you’ll have those 18
stitches that you worked and then you’ll have this slip stitch on the end and
then if you count this chain one as a slip stitch over here on this end that’s
what we’ll have so that we’re gonna do this one more time on the other sleeves
so again you want to start at the right side of your sleeve facing up so your
stitches go the right way and you just want to start the same spot and work
your way backwards so I’m going to go ahead and do that okay so I went ahead
and took a minute and hid all my tails so that’s what I got so far
both my sleeves were done the same I think that it looks pretty good now you
can be done if you want I’m actually making mine as a doll dress for my
daughter so I have some old decorations that I’m not put on them now remember
you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to but I got some ribbon here okay
I’m gonna do my ribbon and I’m gonna do it on this fifth row here the armhole
row I’m not gonna go all the way around I’m just gonna go around the front here
and then back around the back side of the front so you determine where you
want your bow to come out I probably think where I want mine to come out kind
of on the side a little bit so right about here
like that so now I’m going to work my ribbon and
you can skip however many stitches you want to skip in between them I’m gonna
try three so one let’s get three stitches one two three and go over and
under the next that then I’m gonna skip three again one two three and go over
actually I’m just gonna skip all four of those and wrap it around like that
that’s what I’m going to do because I want to make sure the end is wrapped
around that last stitch so im just gonna skip those and now I’m gonna work on the
inside going along the inside I’m gonna tell you this is probably the hardest
part of the whole dress that’s this ribbon in here how it’s supposed to be
of course it does not have to be perfect you can skip however many stitches you
want I’m just gonna go we skipped that stitch
I’m the skipper doesn’t go over and under the next one it’s just kind of
like as long as it gets done just making sure you don’t twist your ribbon that’s
all and then let’s see I guess I’ll go over and under the next one you know just
skip however many you want I guess it’s inside I guess it’s not really gonna make a difference
I’m probably gonna skip about three or so i’ma twist your ribbon one two three
skip again see count three again one two three yep and then I’m just gonna take it now and
just pull it through all the way to the front
just skip whatever there’s like two or three two stitches left I think I can’t
see it does not have to be like mine but and wrap it around the front so the
ribbon is on the outside of that last stitch and now we’re gonna work our way
across over here to where we want our bow so let’s see since we I’m going to
skip these two and I’m gonna go over and under this next one here remember Dont have to be like mine just as we
get it to work and then here’s where we skipped before so I’m gonna go over and
under the next one under and over I’m sorry like that and then I’m just gonna work
my way Oh under and over let’s see we’re right
here from the behind so under and over this one now we were where we want our
bow to come out I have these two stitches I’m gonna go over and under
this last one here now our ribbons coming out the same spot there we go so
we don’t want it to pull tight make sure it’s loose or just about equal make sure
it’s not your ribbon is not crooked anywhere in there and then you tie a bow
I am not good at tying bows I’m actually very very very bad at it so probably have to redo it off-camera
watch it look right I probably will never get it to look right but I’ll try
my best now my ribbions all twisted up goodness okay so what I’m going to do is fix my
ribbon and tie your bow and then there there there okay however you want to tie
your bow however you normally tie a bow my silky side up oh my that’s horrible but anyways now
you can leave your these things as long as you want trim them into your desired
length all right I’m gonna trim mine up angle all right yay now I’m gonna put
some flowers on mine and you can sew these on with a regular needle and
thread if you like with some matching thread you don’t have to put these on
you don’t want to I’m gonna do that three of them okay I don’t know about
you but I think that ribbon is the hardest part of the whole dress I do okay one
last thing we want to do is sew on the hook and eye closures right here and you
just do that with a regular needle and thread choose a what color hook and eye
closure you want you can put however many you want I’ll probably put one two
i’ll probably put three down on the back but that’s up to you so you just get some matching
thread like some purple thread I don’t have any right now I have to go to
Walmart and get some to match but what you do is use your regular needle and
thread and you sew this is the hook side or the closure side right here that and
this is the hook side with a little hook and you can see when you look at them
they both have two little holes and that’s where you sew through so you put
one on one side I always put the holes underneath like that and then I sew it
on like that it’s super tiny super tedious but like that with a regular
yarn and needle like I said I got to get some purple thread and then exactly on
the same spot on the opposite side put the holes underneath and leave your hook
hanging out just a little bit like that and sew it on with a regular
matching thread an needle and then they will hook up in the back like that and
like I said I’m for this back I will probably use three of those probably one
right up here at the top and then one in the middle and then one towards the
bottom like that top bottom and then one somewhere in the middle and that’s it
your dress is done woohoo thanks everybody for watching I hope
you’re able to fall okay hopefully that ribbon didn’t confuse anybody remember doesn’t
have to be exactly like mine you don’t even have to put the ribbon on if you
don’t want to but anything that turned out really cute my daughter’s gonna like
it for a doll dress and I think it worked well for any little newborn so if you
