Barbie LBD

I'm working on my trench coat but would be remiss if I didn't sew something for Barbie as well. I rescued this Barbie last weekend from a friend who had relegated this doll to the donate pile! She is a 35th Anniversary "Vintage" doll. Of course she didn't look like this when I got her but I worked my magic and this is how she now looks!

 

The fabric is from my stash and I have no idea of the fiber content. She already had on the earrings and necklace. The pattern is McCalls 6258 minus the straps. The shoes were actually pink but I colored them black with an alcohol marker.


Close-ups of the braided up-do I styled. I'm glad I was able to add this doll to my already overflowing population!

  2. I love her!! Her dress is fabulous, and so is she! She looks like a Solo in the Spotlight reproduction, just from her hair color and jewelry. I'm so glad you rescued her. Her hair looks amazing. I need to practice my dolly hair do's.

  3. My Barbie as a kid (about 50 yes ago) looked much like this one but mine had her beautiful dark hair in a ponytail. Fun reminder.
