Barbie's Long Dress

Another Barbie outfit for Kaylen's upcoming third birthday.

This time a long, crocheted, strapless evening dress,

buttoned up the back,

with a warm, knitted, kid mohair wrap to go with it.

I hope she likes it. It should match the pink streaks in "Merliah's" (mermaid Barbie's) hair.

The pattern for the dress is Red Shell st Evening Gown by Lynne Sears
For the stole I cast on 12 sts on large needles and knit every row for 12 inches.

I'm beginning to be jealous. Barbie dresses better than I do! But then, I guess she always did.

I found little "pearl" beads Ruinwen, and sewed them on as buttons.

I see that an etsy.com shop sells absolutely minuscule buttons for making doll clothes. I might have to get some.

I don't have much cause for wearing evening dresses ---- or any dress at all for that matter, Dorothy so Barbie is quite welcome to the new wardrobe. Next up is a pair of handknit pants. Don't think I'll be wanting any of those either!
