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

Make a peplum top and skirt for Curvy Barbie!

Having had to go dress shopping for a wedding this year, I noticed that there are more and more lace dresses in stores that look suitable for a formal occasion. While chiffon was popular a few years ago, it seems that lace is now the new "in" thing to wear. I decided to make this peplum top and skirt for Curvy Barbie in a lacy pattern to give it a modern look.

These crocheted items are designed to fit a Curvy Barbie doll, which was released in 2016. For more information on the different body types of Barbie, please visit Crochet Clothes For Your Barbie Doll.
