The Barbie Handout is ready to be distributed. I have about 3 dozen e-mail addresses (so far) and will be shooting out e-mails all day today.
Here are some photos of Barbie dolls modeling a variety of outfits described in the handout. Different colors, slight variations, but basically the same pattern.
l. Seed Stitch Jacket-Slim Dress-Hat-Purse - shown in mint green.
The pattern calls for Garter Stitch, but this outfit was done with Seed St.
2. Gingham Dress-Hat-Purse - shown in pink & violet, with other dresses knit with the same pattern.
3. Sweater with Attached Slim Skirt-Hat-Purse - a few variations of basic pattern.
4. Pants With & Without Attached Boots - a few variations showing the top attached to the pants.
5. Turtleneck Sweater - to go with pants. Can also eliminate the big T-neck and start ribbing at the neck edge - optional.

Wow they are beautiful outfits. Bet every woman here would love to have this collection in their closet...
Okay, I don't usually use all caps or lots of exclamations points when I reply, but these outfits are AMAZING!!! I love them so much!!! I wish I was 8 years old again!!!!!
I have Barbie coffee table books (that I am not allowed to put on the coffee table by you know who) and every couple of months look at them to take that walk down memory lane to 1961 when I got my first one. Those Barbie clothes back then were so amazingly tailored, and these would fit right in. The fit on these dresses and pants is just perfect.
I just looked back again. You are a wonderful designer and knitter. I wish I knew some children so I could knit one of these. Maybe it's time to buy a Barbie again for me!
And yes, count me with those women who would totally wear any of these incredible outfits. Well, if they were plus size, perhaps....
I get barbies and different kinds of dolls just to dress them.I have gotten barbies for 25 cents at the Salvation Army and they called to me dress me.So that's how I got my barbies cheap and babie dolls too
