One of my favorite amigurumi crochet books is My Crochet Doll by Isabelle Kessedjian. I discovered it while browsing at Barnes & Noble and immediately fell in love with all the cute designs for the dolls and there clothes. The only thing you have to remember is that the book is written in British terminology, not U.S. terminology.
To date I have made 4 dolls, all of the basic wardrobe, the Little Red Riding Hood outfit, the countryside outfit, the beach outfit, the pajamas, the rain shirt and pants, and even made a leotard for her (pattern below).
And now for the leotard pattern:
Note; this pattern can be made with any hook and yarn. Just match what hook and yarn you used for your doll.
ch = chain sc = single crochet sl-st = slip stitch
Follow the instructions for the underwear from the basic wardrobe part of the book.
Sew the underwear at the sides.
Rnd 1: Join yarn at the top of the underwear and sc in around top of underwear, do not join.
Rnds 2-8: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 9: Ch 10, skip 4 sc, 1 sc in each of next 13 single crochet, ch 10 skip 4 sc, 1 sc in each of next 14 single crochet, sl-st in next st.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
