I don't have a specific pattern that is beaded, what I  did was string many, many pearls on to a spool of sewing thread and work them off of there. You can do this with any pattern, pearl type or bead. I have managed it with sequins as well, but that was a bit trickier. hope this helps!

Are you talking about the Nicky one from the pink Barbie book? It's sleeveless tube and sort of a Kennedy era style?

I have a "Heirloom Bride's Gown" pattern  that uses Knit-Cro-Sheen and a steel crochet hook No. 9.

There are 12 white roses on the dress and on the veil.  There pearls around the neckline.  The pattern also has an underskirt and a garter.

I don't know if you can get this pattern from the J.& P. Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen of South Maid companies.  It is Leaflet L.C.1132.

The address in 1991 was:   Coats & Clark Inc., 6900 Southpoint Dr. N., Jacksonville, FL 32216

You might get lucky and they would have this pattern in their files.

Some years ago, Coats & Clark put out a BOOK No.270 for 50 cents called ALL FOR DOLLS.

The address of Coats & Clark at this time was:  Coats & Clark's Sales Corp., 72 Cummings Point Rd., Stamford, Conn.06902

On the cover is a Bridal Gown for an 11 1/2" doll. 

Unlike the former Bridal Gown I described, in which the gown below the bodice is narrow, this gown is flaired and appears to have a short train.

I am unable to put pictures on the internet, but would be willing to type the patterns out for you.
