Barbie St. Patrick's Day Dress



I have been working on adapting Skipper and Barbie patterns to fit each other. This is the Sun Dress pattern from Annie's Attic Fashion Doll Little Sister, pattern book number 87D22. When I looked at the finished Skipper pattern, it seemed like it would make an interesting St. Patrick's Day outfit. I still want to do some work on making the bodice fit better. However, I am pleased with my first effort.

This adaptation started with a four-inch elastic circle. I looked at similar patterns to see what the starting chains were and began the pattern using the same number of stitches. Then I followed the pattern for the Skipper skirt.

My next project is an Easter outfit for the American Girl Doll. I finished the top, skirt yesterday, and am working on the arms and details. I have not decided on a St. Patrick’s Day pattern for the American Girl Doll yet.

I love the green and white dress. But I'm partial to green since it's one of my favorite colors.

It's really hard to believe St. Paddy's Day is almost here.

St Patrick's Day is my favorite holiday and I get tickled when I see others make, bake and all out create things for the day! Super cute !
