My First Christmas Barbie Dress...

How can I say no to making this when my oldest asks if we can sew some barbie clothes? Then my middle daughter who is sick said a new dress would make her feel better. So after they picked out material.. this little scrap left over from making an apron, wrapped perfectly size/ around to be about barbie size. So I tried my best to make a dress. I used some elastic in the waist to bring it in. The top is actually two sections that cris-cross and tie in the back. Its my first attempt at sewing barbie clothes... minus when I tried as a kid! :) Gosh it brings back memories of my mom. She use to make these giant ball room flowing barbie dresses and all other kinds of things.

You did a good job. I made a couple Barbie dresses as a kid too. Yes, wonderful memories.

I'm amazed at how well Barbie's have lasted! My kids are playing with some I used 20 years ago. They also have wicker furniture from when my mom played with hers like what 50 years ago? Something like that

@Daelii More than that. I gave my daughter a 50th anniversary edition Barbie for her 28th birthday. She's 43 now.

That looks really nice Aren't you clever? There are probably patterns online for Barbie clothes if you need patterns.

I plan to look! My daughter can cut and pin clothes for herself. So I know she will be thrilled to do Barbie patterns!

My mom use to do all kinds of crafts and sewing. So I usually snagged her end pieces and sewed little barbie / my little pony things.
