Lovely. Over40 years ago, I made a Barbie dress and sweater for a 4-H project. It was my first project on double pointed needles. I have always been proud of it. I later knit a coat for Barbie in mohair and it looked like fur.
TTB answered:
Sounds wonderful.

Great looking pattern. I have an old vintage knitting for Barbie book and have done all of the patterns. That was over 40 years ago. My little sister had the best dressed Barbie ever.

Wow you're making me feel old LOL
Kathleen Parker asked:
Years ago my mother knit a coat, sweater and I think a skirt for my 11.5in doll. I didn't have a real Barbie doll but a less expensive one. I think my mom had fun knitting those little clothes. I learned to sew making Barbie clothes on an old treadle sewing machine. Those were the good old days.
TTB answered:
*Big Smile* Yes they were.
