punk barbie dress

Help! (Does it seem like I have a lot of posts starting with that word lately?) I was just contacted by the fashion editor of the Rocky Mountain News to create a knitted spring outfit for a barbie doll. Of course, I want to do something punk and fab. Here are my two limitations, I don't even know where to find barbie knitting patterns (but I know they are out there) and my outfit has to be finished in 7 days. It is a barbie, so at least the size of the outfits is small and should be a quick knit. If anyone has any pattern leads, please let me know (if it was really cool, I would even pay for a pattern...)
Thanks!

You girls rock - thanks!! I found a couple patterns that I am going to modify into a long shirt with a banded bottom in stripes and leggings. Thankfully, Barbie is small so the knitting will be quicker...
tanks Again!!

On the link I sent, there is a pattern for a poodle skirt. That would rock if you changed the poodle out for a little skull and cross bones. Black skirt, pink skull, pink shirt with black trim. How fun that would be to wear to a costume party. Go as fifties goth chick. LOL
