Jeannie’s sophisticated green dress – where’s the cocktail party?

2 Oct

Inspired by someone’s blog (for the life of me, I cannot find this again), I too adapted the Stick Barbie pattern no 385 using her adjustments.

I found I also had to enlarge the armholes considerably, but the result is a beautiful snug fit (perhaps too snug – maybe even larger needles would have been better.)

The shoes were crocheted later with a 3.0 mm hook and are my first attempt at designing my own! I used a DK yarn from Stylecraft colour 1065 Meadow.
