Purple and white colour blocked Barbie crochet couture

purple-barbie1This time I decided to play with colour blocking using a deep vibrant purple and white cotton crochet thread.  This one has a halter neckline with horizontal blocking on the upper body, vertical stripes on the lower body, and alternating shells on the skirt.  It closes with a button at the neck, top of the back, and a snap at the waist.  I accessorized this one with a genuine amethyst gemstone bead necklace on a silver plate chain, a white pearl and purple glass bead bracelet, and a white straw hat with a crochet edge and band with a silk rose accent.
