I HAVE MADE SEVERAL OF THESE DRESSES FOR MY GRANDAUGHTERS AND NOW MY GREAT GRANDAUGHTERS WANT ONE TOO.. I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND MY PATTERN. DOES ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE A PATTERN FOR A BARBIE DOLL BRIDE DRESS WITH PEARLS?
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.
