Welcome to my blog! I'm a stay at home of 3 beautiful children and I love to sew! I have been sewing ever since I was a little girl and my gran taught me everything from machine-sewing to cross-stitch. I started making Barbie clothes this past Christmas for my daughter and I loved it! It's so much fun to design and create fashions for the ultimate model - Barbie! I opened a shop on Etsy in May of this year and I have met a lot of talented artists that I enjoy networking with. So, take some time to look around, read my posts, and enjoy!

Purple Wall Paper Print

Hello again, dolls! I promised I would be back with more photos for your viewing pleasure, and here I am! 

This first dress, I absolutely LOVE! It features a peasant-style bodice and a patchwork skirt. It's OOAK in that those fabrics will not be used for this style of dress again. I used nine different fabrics to create this look! It comes with the beaded necklace you see on Barbie. Now I know you all are dying to have this dress.... but it sold first thing this morning! Sorry dolls!

This next dress is a simple strip dress with cap sleeves and a ribbon sash that ties in front - though really, you could tie it to the side or in back if you'd like. The dress is created with strips of three different, but coordinating fabrics. The bodice fabric is seen repeated in the skirt of the dress. I love the simply chic style of this unique dress.

This two piece outfit features a purple wallpaper print pleated skirt - wow, say that 3 times fast! I love this fabric and used it on several pieces lately. The waistband is made with a yellow fabric spotted with purple, white, and blue dots. It's embellished with a purple ribbon bow at the waist. A purple off-the-shoulder t-shirt is paired with this skirt. I think it looks best tucked in, so as to show off the ribbon and waistband, but, Doll, you can wear it however! A beaded necklace is matched with this outfit, too.

Do you see a theme here? Clearly I found a fun fabric and used it up! This outfit is actually three pieces - bolero, midriff halter, and skirt. The bolero and skirt are made with this same wallpaper print fabric and the halter is made with yellow fabric that you saw in the two outfits above. The halter ties around barbie's neck with a length of purple ribbon. The skirt is trimmed with black vintage lace. The lace and ribbon came from my favorite supply shop, Griffith Gardens.

This outfit is too fun! A cropped tee with cap sleeves is paired with short-shorts. The shorts are embellished with a purple ribbon bow and the whole outfit is completed with a sterling silver beaded necklace.
These outfits will be posted on Etsy in the coming week.

Well, there you have it, Dolls! This is what I have been up to, when I'm not fulfilling orders. This week I'm working on a line of new pink items. I spent this afternoon on two new dresses that I hope to post on Facebook tonight - they are too cute! Hope to see you there!
