Going To The Chapel

I came across some 80s barbie sized clothes patterns at Goodwill the other day, and my 4 year old was very excited at the prospect of a wedding dress. The original was pretty gaudy, so I changed it up a bit, but this was very quick and fun to make, and my little lady was heart-meltingly ecstatic.

Material Notes

Made from a cotton peasant style blouse


Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Bridal, Classic, Evening Wear, Romantic

    Oh this is so cute she must be the happiest girl ever ……….Memory’s …………and to think this is how i started out sewing….. lol…… my sister made a dress for my doll and after that she was so lazy to play with me (the age gap between us is 10 years) so while i was playing she was being a teenager! !!!! So i made up my mind and started making my dolls own dresses …. I always tell my sister if it wasn’t for her refusing to make dresses for my doll i would never ever had the love for sewing!

      Thank you- and wow 10 years is quite a gap! She should be proud that she had something to do with it ;)

      Thanks! It’s so nice that your mom could do that for you, and that we can now create for our daughters, too. I do hope they really appreciate how much love goes into it, when they’re older :)
