Pink Blake by PaleAngelLex, on Flickr

I've been away from Craftster for a while, so even though this is an older project of mine, I never got around to sharing it here. I love dressing up my Pullips, but as I spend more time working on them, I'm finding that most of Barbie clothes I collected early on just don't look as nice as I thought. So, I've been teaching myself how to sew tiny, little things. Making the clothes are as much fun as seeing my girls wear them.  I've also been experimenting with fake fur wigs. This pink one was my second attempt at fur wig making, and I think it went rather well. Anyway, on to pictures!

The bodice of the dress was very simple to crochet. The skirt of the dress was my first attempt at doing pick ups. That was a little tricky.

Each pick up is beaded, not that you can see them on the final dress, but I couldn't think of a reason not to add beads. At least I'll know they're there Smiley
Ignore my horrible looking thumb...

As you can see, they didn't turn out very even. I think the next time the skirt needs to be fuller and I need to pay closer attention to the length of the finished skirt.

Over all, I'm still happy with how it all came out. I think it makes for  nice, complete look.

Thanks you guys Smiley

I never even thought of doing a tutorial. That's a great idea. I'll have to see if I can fit it in before the dead line. I'm assuming you were talking about the pick-up skirt. The tutorial I had used is no longer available, so it would be good to make another one.
