After looking for some more pattern, I found this halter pattern. Made of 2 piece of triangle and joined with simple chain behind the neck and single crochet at the bottom part. This halter top made with my scrap gradient of pink yarn. A perfect dress for summer time. Small pink tote bag matched nicely with the dress.
I used the same way with green pullover to make this shirt. But I make the neckline smaller so Barbie don't have to used something underneath the shirt. I also make it shorter the the green one due to limited scrap yarn I had.
I found the inspiration for this pullover from one of my email from Annie's Knitting. It supposed to be a shawl or something like that. Since I don't have small knitting needle, I used ribbing pattern to make this. And it turn out to be a nice pullover. Add a matching bag before you go out.
I used my scrap yarn to make this dress with the pattern from this blog. The ruffle at the bottom of the dress make it pretty. It also combine with ribbing part in the top of the dress. A cape can be added to the dress to make it more pretty for the evening event.
I had a white yarn that I bought few weeks ago. But I don't know what to make out of it because after working with some number 10 yarn, this one seems to big. And then making white gown seems like the best way. So...now Barbie has a white gown to complete the clothes collection.

This time I make the jacket with the same pattern I made for Steffi. The difference are in color and felt thickness. This is also had different neckline. The belt create with a silver lace as an accent to the jacket. With a match tote bag, Barbie ready to go.
I got the pattern for the bodice from here. And I do a little bit modification on skirt. I bought the material and ribbon at Idee store in Bonn, Germany. Sewing small dress like this really need an effort. I like the way it turn out.

I was searching for a shoes. My Barbie definitely need more shoes because the one that come with the original dress just not fit with some dress I made. And I found this blog. A blog about making doll shoes. One of the posting about making paper sandal and give a free pattern.
I used cereal box that have light brown color and use a small ribbon for sandal’s strip. It was OK. At least my Barbie had another footwear to take a picture with.
Some dress will be perfect if you add a hat in it. Or if you planning to go to the beach. Even Barbie need a hat. So far I make 3 crochet hat. One for Steffi and 2 for my Barbie. Planning to make some more if I found a nice hat pattern.

If I had some scrap yarn, one thing I want to do is making a bag out of it. A bag that match the dress. This are 4 of them and still think about making some more.
