Barbie Dress - Christmas Party Ruffles

Yes, I know I said Id have more done by now, But just after i wrote the last Barbie post, I found myself in a very dark place emotionally. I struggled to do normal things let-alone crochet and it kind of got put on the backburner. I'm sorry it took me so long. Ill also get the top hat pattern done this week, I know alot of you are waiting for it!

Todays dress just happened. I have a basic half idea of where Im going, and I grab colours and just crochet and see what happens. If a row looks ok, Ill write it down. So most of these are kinda made up on the spot as Im going. There is no stitch count because honestly, for things like this it really just does not matter if you have a few extra or a few less. Hope you enjoy this post. As always, Id really LOVE it if you made something you could add it to Ravelry as a project, Id like to see what you create. Other then that, go nuts. Just remember, credit where credit is due, if your selling them, a link to here to my page on Facebook (mammathatmakes) or something would be nice.
