PATTERN DETAILS

I love to create clothes for Barbie from different time periods. This is a early 1960s cocktail dress in retro colors of teal and red. The bodice of the dress is put together in an unusual way, but I've included photos in the pattern to guide you through the process. Please note: This pattern is the same as "Lady of the Forest" except that it is for a Barbie size doll and "Lady" is for a 16" fashion doll. Feel free to sell any items you make from my patterns (but do not mass produce). Please do not resell the patterns themselves or make them available online. They are copyrighted. Contact me if you have any questions or feedback! :) I also sell on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PrincessOfCrochet. My patterns are available there, as well as some of my finished items. GAUGE 7 sc = 1 inch; 6 sc rows or rnds = 1 inch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS fits 11 1/2-inch fashion doll

Recommended with this pattern

You can trust my patterns to be professional, well written, and carefully proofread. My background as a teacher and later as an editor helped me in my goal to write professional crochet patterns, and I also follow the guidelines for writing crochet patterns set up by the DRG publishing network. If you find a valid mistake in one of my patterns and point it out to me, I will refund the cost of the pattern to you! (Applies only to individual patterns, not collections.) I learned to crochet at the age of ten but didn't get passionately involved with it until many years later when my son was born. I still love to make baby clothes and blankets even though he's not a baby anymore! All things tiny are what I enjoy crocheting, especially doll clothes and baby clothes. I have created many of my own patterns that have been published in various magazines (Crochet World, Quick & Easy Crochet, Barbie Bazaar, and Dollhouse Miniatures). I have had 2 crochet books published: "Twentieth Century Fashion Doll Collection" (2006, by Annie's Attic) and "Playtime Jackets" (2011, by Leisure Arts).
