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.
