Girly Barbie dress for little M

Howdy!!! I'm loving the small dresses, can see a dress season coming. They are nice, cute, work fast and the models don't complaint about the construction lol Think I'll have to get my own model btw, this one is mom's.

This cute little dress is for Posse Pard Sandy, well for little M, her granddaughter. Hope she likes it, and also that is strong enough to resist playtime lol



This dress was free formed. It has a matching bag, as no girly outfit is complete without one.

Is crocheted from the bottom up and in the round, after the base chain there's a row of hdc, then seed stitch to the hip, then the decreases were made with dc (one row of 2 dc, 2 dc tog, and another one of dc, 2 dc tog). At that point just made 2 rows of sc.

For the top made 4 rows of sc in light pink, then at the next row made: sc on next 3 st, 2 sc on same st, sc, 3 sc tog, sc, 2 sc on same st, sc on next 3 st. The following row was the same, but in each of the 2 sc that were on the same st of the previous round, made 2 sc on same st. Then 1 row of sc (making 2 sc tog on the center). To finish the dress made a row of sc all around the light pink, made the two long stripes to secure the dress with a button hole at the end of each (they cross in the back and the buttons are in the front). There's also a small button on the back at the top of the skirt.

The bag was crocheted in the round, starting with a ch 3, 6 sc on 3rd ch from loop on hook, next rounds are always worked on on BLO: 2sc of each sc of the previous round. Next row is 2 sc on same st, 1 sc n next, all around, the following row 2 sc on same st sc on next 2 st all around. The next two rows are worked on the 2 loops, dc on next 2 st, 2 dc tog on next 2 st. Then 2 rows of hdc in light pink a double ch for the strap (with both pinks) and a flap made with sc, at the last row sc on next 2 st, ch3 sc on next 2 st. Sew a button to the bag.

Hope this makes sense!

Happy week everyone, I'll get back to work next Thursday...
