11.5" Fashion Doll 3/4-Sleeve Tunic Crochet Pattern

It is a icy weekend here, so I am crocheting in front of the TV and binge watching Netflix. Great way to pass a Saturday.  Since the weather outside is frightful, I decided that I need to make a warm tunic for Barbie today.  It can be worn by itself as a dress or with some leggings/pants for a warm outfit.  I am still working on some variations to the pattern that I can hopefully have ready soon.
