I love vintage clothes. I have a whole rack of them in my antique shop. I have gorgeous dresses from the forties to turn of the century to 1800’s undergarments. I also love barbie clothes. (I admit it, I’m still playing with dolls!) My love of vintage styles and my love of barbie clothes have come together and I have been delving into the world of vintage styled barbie dresses.
The first two pictures here are my latest. I love the collar and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Earlier I had tried this collared pattern and really need to use it again.
The first vintage style that I started playing with was this one. (Warning! Poor picture quality ahead! But it’s still fun to look.)
And I kept playing with this pattern…
and then I tried it in solids….
and then I played around with beads and lace.
All of this was a lot of fun but there was still something I hadn’t tried. I had been wanting to use vintage hankies so I gave that a whirl.
I really love how this one turned out! So I forged on and tried a different vintage style with a hankie.
A few of these have sold but most of them can still be found in my Etsy shop.
Hope you enjoyed looking!
