How to Make a Baby Crochet Tutu Dress

Save

A crocheted tutu dress is the perfect outfit for a baby girl's first picture. Strips of tulle attached to a charming tube top crocheted with a stretchy yarn creates an outfit that turns the baby into a cherubic image. Add a stretchy headband for the total feminine look. The stretchy yarn tube top can fit the average baby girl who is between the ages of newborn to 6 months.

Things You'll Need

  • Size D crochet hook
  • Medium-weight stretch yarn
  • Crochet 26 chain stitches, using a size D crochet hook and medium-weight stretch yarn. Wrap the chain around the baby's middle to see if the tutu will fit around her. If it's too large, remove a few stitches and if it's too small add a few stitches.

  • Crochet a triple crochet in the fourth chain stitch from the hook. Crochet a triple crochet stitch in each chain stitch across the row.

  • Crochet 3 crochet stitches. Crochet a triple crochet stitch in each of the previous row stitches. Repeat this pattern for 18 rows.

  • Remove the hook and cut the yarn leaving a 1-inch-long tail. Place the tail inside the loop and pull. Weave the tail through the last few stitches.

  • Cut a strip of 3-inch-wide tulle into a 12-inch-long strip. Cut 25 more of these strips.

  • Hold two strips of the tulle together, and bend them in half. Slip the bent end between two triple crochet stitches in the first row of the crochet, approximately 1 inch in. Slip the free end of the tulle strip into the loop formed at the bent end and pull tightly to attach the tulle to the crocheted fabric.

  • Skip one space and repeat Step 5 in the next space. Repeat this procedure around the edge of the crocheted fabric.

  • Thread an embroidery needle with crochet thread of the same color as the stretch yarn. Use the needle to sew the sides of the tutu dress together.

Tips & Warnings

  • For added color, make the dress using one color and the tutu using another color.
  • Make the tulle longer for an older baby.
