I make this dress often it is so pretty and easy for little girls who love to dress up their barbie dolls. Very glamourus in lurex yarn too.

I have made three or four of these. They are very easy to make, and I am not the greatest knitter. The dresses fit well and look just as cute short as they do long. Easy for a little child to put on and take off the doll.
