I finally managed to find some time (and motivation) to make my first dress that I’ve sewn in ages. It’s really gotten my confidence up with my sewing abilities so I believe I’ll be doing a lot more preparation for my upcoming store!
I got this fabric purely out of love for the colors and design and had no idea what I was going to do with it. I just knew that I wanted it. Browsing tumblr I suddenly came across a picture of Barbie birthday cards that came with a dress for Barbie attached from the 80s/90s.
I then set out creating ideas in my head of exactly how I wanted to do it, because of course I didn’t want to copy the Barbie dress exactly! While browsing through Laika Doll’s vast collection of patterns I found an 80s evening dress pattern which with some shortening of the hem line would be just perfect.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
