Pullip Babydoll Nightie (Free Crochet Pattern)

Updated on November 11, 2013

My favorite hobby is crocheting doll clothes. Using what I've learned from reading existing patterns, I create my own designs for Barbie.

As I was making the blanket and pillow you see in the photo above as a Christmas gift for my nephew's plush doll, I thought it would be a great idea to use it in some photo shoots for Pullip, as the props were a good fit for the doll.

This hub is a free crochet pattern for a Pullip Babydoll Nightie. It was made to fit a Type 4 Body Pullip. For more information on Pullip body types, please visit Facts About Pullip Dolls.

Note: If you want to make this for a different doll (like Barbie or Monster High), just follow the basic design and you should be able to easily adjust it to fit your own doll.

Materials

  • Size No. 3 Crochet Hook
  • Size No. 10 Crochet Cotton Thread (MC - pink and CC - white)
  • 1 Small Snap

Pattern

Part 1: Bra Top

Row 1: In MC, ch 32, sc in the 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, turn. (31)

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in the first 10 sc, sk 1 sc, 3 dc in the next 3 sc, sk 1 sc, sc in the next sc, sk 1 sc, 3 dc in the next 3 sc, sk 1 sc, sc in the last 10 sc, turn.

Row 3: Ch 1, sc in the first 9 sc, sk 1 sc, dc in the next 8 dc, sk 1 dc, sc in the next sc, sk 1 dc, dc in the next 8 dc, sk 1 sc, sc in the last 9 sc, turn.

Row 4: Sl st in the first 5 sc, ch 13, sk 6 sts, sl st in the next 6 dc, sk 1 sc, sl st in the next 6 dc, ch 13, sk 6 sts, sl st in the last 5 sc.

Fasten off.

Part 2: Babydoll Dress

Round 1: In CC, attach thread with sl st in the opposite side of the initial starting chain of Part 1, ch 2 (does not count as dc from here throughout), shell in the same ch, *sk 2 ch, shell in the next ch, repeat from * across, sl st in the first dc of the 2nd shell in the Round to join. Fasten off and change colors.

Round 2: In MC, attach thread with sl st in the first ch-1 sp, ch 2, shell in each ch-1 sp around, making sure to work through both thicknesses of first and last shell of the previous Round to complete the final shell for this Round, sl st in the first dc of the first shell to join. Fasten off and change colors.

Repeat Round 2 alternating MC and CC for each Round to achieve a stripe effect. Feel free to add an extra color if you want, to change the look of this Nightie.

Once you reach the desired length, work 5-dc shell in each ch-1 sp instead of shells for the final Round.

Fasten off and weave in all ends (there will be a lot of these, but I personally think it elevates the look to the next level instead of just using one color).

How to Make Your Own Props

If you want to make the same props for your own dolls, here is a short section on how to do so.

For the pillow, I followed the tutorial from this YouTube video and used my brother's old shirt instead of jeans for the fabric. I did not include the tufting part since it is supposed to be a pillow (no tufts) instead of a mattress.

As for the teddy bear, while you can just borrow that from any other dolls you might have laying around, you can also purchase them in most craft stores, like Hobby Lobby, or Amazon.com if you don't have access to craft stores.

For the doll blanket, I used up some of my scrap acrylic yarn, found an afghan pattern that I liked, and used an appropriate sized hook for the yarn. For this blue blanket, I used the Granny Square Baby Throw pattern from Lion Brand. You can find a link to this pattern here: Crochet Projects Using Granny Squares.
