I just could not resist this utterly charming 60s traveling wardrobe knitting pattern for a Barbie-sized doll! It consists of a dress, a travel coat, and luggage. The luggage includes a suitcase, duffel bag and hatbox. I never played much with Barbie dolls in my girlhood, but this is just so fantastic. It is soooo Mad Men; I could just see Joan or Betty wearing this. In fact there are Mad Men Barbie dolls out now – this would be absolutely perfect for them.
Simple stockinette and seed stitches form the basis for the travel wardrobe. The dress, made in two pieces in stockinette stitch, is bordered with seed stitch. The coat is knit in one piece. The suitcase, duffel bag and hatbox are worked completely in seed stitch; pieces knitted straight up.
Have fun knitting up this snazzy Barbie doll ensemble! 🙂

Hello Marilyn: When I was about 11 yrs old, I took a 4-H knitting class. One of the patterns was a travelling set just like this one. Have searched for years. Thank you for placing it on the internet.
