Stacie Sundress

When I was making Barbie clothing for my now adult nieces Stacie wasn't available for purchase. Back then I had Barbie, Ken, Skipper, and Kelly. I picked up Stacie and Skipper's Space dolls for the donation. As I've stated before I do not in any way consider myself an expert on Barbie but it seems Stacie is about the size I remember Skipper being when I mader clothing perviously and Skipper seems taller. I haven't taken Skipper out of the box so I haven't had a chance to measure her yet. I'll know more later.

I've been collecting Annie's Fashion doll crochet club patterns since the days I made clothes for my nieces. I'd stopped collecting when they outgrew Barbie's but when I decided to return to Barbie's I returned to collecting the patterns I am missing. I used Play Set FC20-03 pattern to make this dress. I found this one recently in one of my vintage pattern hunts.

This dress is made using Premier's Garden Light weight #3, snapdragon with a C hook. The original pattern calls for an e hook with baby yarn. I tried a variety of yarns but I had to get down to a C hook before I could get the top of the dress not to be too large.
