Laura Lab - Full Outfit for Barbie



Morning all!

Wow another Barbie pattern this year already! Spoilt? Yes indeed 😉

Today I'm sharing the pattern for Laura Lab's work outfit. Laura is a scientist! She has a lab coat, a top and a skirt. SO I guess technically you get 3 patterns! Miss M picked out Laura's name, and profession, and I went to work making her some clothes to suit. This doll will get a few more outfits and will eventually be gifted to a child in the community.

The yarn weight for each piece is different, so please take note of that. The reason, is pretty simple actually. This outfit is constructed from my scrap stash, that was created on the fly. We don't waste scraps here, oh no, we hoard them for years until the perfect project comes along haha!

The top will feel quite stiff in DK/8ply, but the sizing and fit are good so I didn't change it to something thinner.
