Not your typical hellcat biker chic and

Barbie's Knit Sun Dress

This pattern is named Bow-trimmed Sundress for Barbie or Skipper and a snap to knit.  Even though I knit the bow we decided not to add it, but we may add a belt and matching clutch of narrow grossgrain ribbon in a coordinating color. 

I can use this pattern and make simple changes for different looks.  It is easy to:
  • Add single or double straps in various widths
  • Knit it mini, midi or maxi length
  • Knit decorative edges at the top and bottom
I used scrap yarn: Staccato "Kitchen" which may not be a good choice because of pooling but my granddaughter and I love this yarn and the colorway, and Skipper has a simple top and skirt knit from the same yarn. 

....Happy Trails....
