I have been working on this crocheted Barbie gown for quite some time now. It's been difficult to count the stitches with all the distractions around the house.
I've had to lock myself in the studio to get anything done. Last night I got 261 4mm beads strung and have just started the ruffle at the bottom of the gown.
I have an article posted at Bubblews about part 1! The basic dress is done! You can read it here.
I should have another update once I get started on the train and get the ribbon roses glued onto the dress.
