Crochet Barbie Dress

I do not crochet, but I had to post this crochet Barbie dress from Crochet spot:

If you crochet you can get the pattern at the Crochet Spot. The reason I had to post it is because my Barbie had a crochet dress. Two actually. A pink one and a blue one. With matching hats. My dresses covered up a little more Barbie though. My grandmother crocheted them for my older sisters and they got handed down to me. One of them, the blue one, even made its way into Lou La's Barbie collection. Ah! Memories.

Did you ever cut your Barbies hair? I cut mine ALL of the time. I had a ton of Barbies because I was the youngest grandchild on my dad's side of the family, so everyone would give the toys to me when they out grew them. I honestly think I had about 30 Barbies. And I think at least 20 of them had hair cuts a la Lorie. I will have to ask my mom to be sure, but I don't think I ever cut my own hair. So maybe it is a good idea to let your kids cut Barbie's hair.

I love this dress! I think I will make one for my little granddaughter. Only I will add straps - I'm pretty sure I can figure out how to do that on my own!

Cute dress! Yep, I cute my Barbie's hair. It always looked terrible.

I've never been a fan of crocheted clothes...and no, I never cut my doll's hair either! what's wrong with me?

My Mom crocheted several Barbie outfits for my dolls. I still have most of them and they are part of my girls' toys now. I NEVER cut Barbie hair. I treasured them way too much. It was a sacrilege, a desecration in my mind, and I could never understand why my friends cut their Barbies' hair. Like you said, it always looked terrible!

I had crocheted Barbie dresses from my grandma too! I didn't cut my Barbie dolls' hair because it was just too pretty to cut.

My MIL has made *dozens* of dresses for my daughters barbies. There is a witches gown, a fancy ball gown, a summer dress, pants, shrugs, everything! She is trying to teach me how to crochet, but, nothing good has come of it yet!
