    Love it, I bought a Barbie so I could dress her too, haven’t gotten around to making her any fashions yet but you’ve kept me inspired! xx

      Thank you. It’s the closest thing I could get to dressing up a “daughter” :) Glad I was able to perk up your interest!

    That looks really cool! I love barbies. When I glanced at the picture I was like “Wow… The person modeling is really skinny!” Lol!

      I got this Barbie so I can make “proof of concept” for some of my ideas… It does help, plus I don’t end up wasting too much fabric when my idea does not work :) thanks for likiing it.

      This design was just something that popped on my head and wanted to try it out. So, I did it in small scale. Still waiting for a perfect occasion to make this dress for (I don’t want to see it sitting in my closet for ages after putting in too much work on it).
