~Refashioning a Barbie Dress~

My daughter got a Barbie for Christmas, and she was concerned that the dress wasn't modest enough. 



I pulled out a top I had that didn't work for me, and a bit of lace.



A little time and voila! a modified Barbie dress! I trimmed the ruffle off the tank, sewed it onto the dress (seamed down the back), and sewed the white lace along the top. Nothing fancy, but it works!


My daughter is happy but wanting a whole new wardrobe for Barbie...

I always modified the Barbie clothes, but now I don't have to. The girls love making and "fixing" outfits for their Barbies and princesses. Now the boy likes to make coats and capes for his action figures.
