Barbie's Wedding Dress

A crocheted wedding dress for Barbie!

On a whim I joined a knit or crochet "along" on Ravelry. The theme is "Barbie wedding" and the idea is to start in May, but true to form I never waited for the official start. Truth is I've never been much for group participation like that and I always end up doing my own thing. I already had the pattern and the 10/2 tencel in my stash so I got started. It took longer than I expected, but less than a week.

I love the little details, all the way from a beaded and beribboned headdress with pale pink veil down to a tulle crinoline and cute little beaded garter. Great fun. I may have to do this again some day.

It's a bit too delicate for my 3 year old granddaughter, Kaylen, right now so I think I'll get a doll stand and put it on display in my craft room until she and her little sister are old enough to handle it with care.

I love all the little details! This dress is just ethereal...spun from clouds and spring flowers. :)

Thanks ladies. It was a very enjoyable project done for no other reason than for the fun of it.

Ruinwen, that's a perfect description. The tencel thread I used is so soft and fluid feeling.


That looks so beautiful, I love the details.
