A Modest Barbie Doll

 I know, I know.  Bunny is too young to have a Barbie doll, but since she was given one and I thought it would be a good idea for her to use it to learn about different body parts (eyes, hair, feet, etc), I let her open this one that her Aunt gave to her.
 The problem was, however, that this particular barbie was wearing a tiny little bikini which not only poses a choking hazard, but is not the type of image I want seared in my little girl's brain.  Neither that nor the ridiculously skinny body underneath the swimsuit.
So, I knit this little dress late one night while watching an episode of Covert Affairs.  I made some mistakes because I was making up the pattern as I went along, but I'm overall quite pleased with her modest little barbie doll.

it's cute- I won't even let my daughter's wear tank tops :) and good for you on not wanting her to see a bikini

Nunca antes vi a una Barbie tan bien vestida como esta.
Lindo traje.
Cariños desde Chile.
