Barbie crochet couture part 1

orange-barbie1I recently found a huge stash of crochet thread at a local thrift store and was inspired to create some Barbie clothing using it.  I didn’t use any patterns, just made it up as I went along using various stitches including crazy shell and crossed double crochet.  First up is this top and skirt outfit in orange and white done mostly in crazy shell with some crossed stitch in the shoulder straps for a bit more detail.  I even made a little necklace and matching wide brim floppy hat.  Enjoy!

I do a lot of different things. I am a horse racing photographer, I make jewelry, and I crochet. Here I will mostly concentrate on crochet. I live in Ontario, Canada, now but I am from the deep South and lived in Alabama before I moved here.

  1. Lovely work! I like the colors and your design. The necklace is a great touch. Did you braid it or crochet it with beads?
