Crochet Dress for Barbie

A friend gifted my lil one a Barbie doll for her birthday. Well, I was the one who was more excited than she was! The doll was a pretty one with brown lush hair and lots of accessories. The only thing I did not like about her was her dress. It was way to small for her and kept sliding up her hip always and the upper portion kept falling of her shoulders. And needless to say, the dress was gone in few days time.

The poor thing lay naked in the toy basket. Every time I saw it, I felt pity. Finally, it occurred to me that I should make a small dress for her. Well, I wished and it was done.

It would not have taken one hour to make. It was super easy, fast, and cute. Here it is.

And how can you not show off her curves.

Well, now she looks very neat and cute. No more embarrassment.

I have used single, double, and treble crochet stitches for the dress. It is loosely based on the Lacy Crochet Dress I made for my daughter last year.

It was a quick, easy, and cute project.

Thank you Deepa. But once you overcome the laziness and start, then there is no looking back. It is super-addictive. :-)
