Barbie Dress

Gracie has a Barbie who is perpetually naked.  I think this is mostly because she came wearing a bathing suit that Gracie cannot get onto her by herself.  While cruising Ravelry the other day, I came upon some inspiration!  A crocheted Barbie gown that does not have any fasteners.  Instead, the dress is stretchy, so it can just be pulled over Barbie's body and held in place by her curvy-ness.

It was meant to be an evening gown, but sport weight yarn does not equal a quick project.  Plus, I was using an E hook! 

I found lots of other inspiration on the site and I'm thinking I may make her some more clothes.  It made Gracie very happy to be able to put the close on by herself.
