I've also been having a go at making the lovely Barbie some crocheted clothes. I have to admit, it's taken me a while to get the right yarn and hook size, but they're a reasonable start, I think! Thanks to patterns from Julie A. Bolduc and also Lynne Sears at Barbie Basics.
A sort-of Tinkerbell dress!I adapted one of Julie Boulduc's patterns here. This used Dk yarn and a 4.5mm hook. Am quite pleased with this.
This pink Barbie basics pattern is great; I used some yarn I picked up in a charity shop and and a size 3.5mm hook. For the next one I will try a 3mm.
This is one of Lynne Sears'.
