Overview

What girl doesn't want to dress just like her favorite doll? People really love Barbie-as the success of Nicky Epstein's Crochet for Barbie Doll® and Knits for Barbie Doll® so clearly proved. Following on the heels of those bestsellers, Epstein, one of today's hottest knitwear designers, has come up with a new twist: matching ensembles for Barbie and her young owners, too. They're enjoyable to knit, make great gifts, and even beginning knitters can complete many of these 20 fun garments and accessories. Choose from colorful everyday clothing and "fantasy" wear, including tankinis, sweater and hat sets, a go-go dress, flower-power poncho, fairy costume, tutu, and more. There are even some patterns for adults, and for male admirers.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A prolific knitwear designer and author, Epstein carved out a niche for herself in Barbie Doll needlework with Knits for Barbie Doll and Crochet for Barbie Doll, both pattern books for the ubiquitous Barbie. Barbie Doll and Me puts the doll's owner into the picture with a series of fetching designs for matching outfits for little girls and their Barbie Dolls-20 garments and accessories in all. Designs are not confined to Barbie and her young owner, however, as many are also sized for mom, and there are even father and son garments for Barbie's friend Ken. Included are trendy ponchos, ballerina and fairy costumes, and colorful accessories such as faux-fur hats and bags for mom, daughter, and Barbie alike. Many of the designs include Epstein's signature embellishments, and most are suitable for all but the beginning knitter. Generally recommended for public libraries.
