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

Having received some feedback from my Curvy Barbie Chevron Dress pattern, I wanted to make something more skintight to show off the curvy Barbie's body. Since my older Barbie (non-curvy) patterns all began with basic designs, I thought I would go back to the beginning and work on a simple bodycon dress, but with a more modern twist to it with the added flounce sleeves.

      I have made this pattern several times and have so much fun with it! I make different variations such as adding a ruffle in a different color or adding length and making a mermaid dress. Please keep the patterns coming for the curvy Barbie!!! Thanks
