New Barbie Pattern: One-Shoulder Dress

A lady wrote to request an off-the-shoulder pattern.  I only glanced at the email and got a great idea how to do that!  And produced this! 
No, no, she said "off the shoulder"  :-) 

I guess it was time for me to make Barbie a One-Shoulder Dress, that's all. 

Pattern coming soon to the website! 


This is one of my favorite Barbie dolls.  I found her in the FREE box at the thrift shop.  What, nobody wanted her just because she's purple and sparkly??  And that makes me love her!  I love things that are different and flawed, yet uniquely beautiful  :-) 

She should have had wings, but they're gone.  Poor wounded fairy!  The least I can do is make her a pretty dress. 

I changed the white balance so this picture wouldn't come out all yellow (from the desk lamp) and inadvertently made her look pink.  She's really very purple. 

There, I just took her to several different locations in my house and outside, and my poor little cam couldn't get a decent shot of her.   So I swiped a couple photos from ebay auctions...

THIS is how purple she is.

The patterns for both of these are up...

But the one-shoulder one needs modification and while I was in the process of working on it, I had some life complications go on. Eventually I'll finish and post the better version... said...

I really enjoy implementing your patterns! Thank you for your effort to make children's eyes shine!
