My favorite hobby is to crochet doll clothes. Using what I've learned from reading existing patterns, I create my own designs for Barbie.

While working on a period dress from Paradise Publications, I came up with the design for Barbie Asymmetrical Off Shoulder Dress and took a break from the more complicated pattern to make this simple dress. Inspired by the basic skirt pattern from the period dress, this pattern uses a combination of single and double crochets to produce a textured look.
