I had bought a CD on Ebay last year that had about 25 different vintage Barbie patterns that they had copied and put together on this CD. I printed them off, hoping that they would run true to size and have found to my delight that they are!
So this weekend, having done most of my housework at nights during the week, I spent the day making up all the view on this pattern:
Wouldn't you like to have these clothes for yourself? I would!
I think this Barbie may have once been Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz, but she came to me naked and now she sports this adorable red and white striped shirt dress with a red jumper over it. Excuse her wrinkles, she had been sitting on my sewing counter.
This lovely lady, who I think has had a haircut at the fingers of her former owner, is looking springy in her white and floral sheath which she can also wear with the long green and white polka dot vest:
I need to invest in some Barbie shoes!
I changed this little suit up a little bit as I had just a tiny bit of this decorative lace in my sewing box and thought it would look lovely on this navy skirt. She also wears a white jacket trimmed in yellow edging.
This lovely lady isn't a rescue, she was mine when I was little. At one time she had different wigs to change her hair style but they are long gone! But I think she still looks sophisticated in her black dress with lace trimming and rose accessory.
And last but not least, this pretty redheard looks stunning in this yellow gown.
I had so much fun sewing these and I like to make them look as much like the pattern as possible just for fun.
I also made an Easter rabbit that turned out .....uummmmmm... interesting. But I'll save that for another day!
Hope you have a great week!
