The thing is, I've googled it since and I think orange may actually be 'in'!
Well my Christmas break has been put to good use!
I had another spurt of enthusiasm for making Barbie clothes. This time I made a sloper for Barbie by making a cast of her torso much like the duct tape thing you can do - in real life!?. I could then use those measurements to make clothes either from scratch or using my vintage patterns for inspiration.
I love this dress that was inspired by a seventies pattern. Note I say inspired because, as we all know, Barbie's measurements do not correspond to normal body ratios, so I pretty much had to look at the line drawings and then make my own patterns referencing the Barbie slopers I made.
Loving this white dress with its matching underskirt. The dresses are fully lined because it was the easiest way to have neat seams, although I am now experimenting with French seams. That is until my enthusiasm for teeny tiny fiddly clothes wears off again!
Happy New Year! :)
