Vintage Barbie Style

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!
