Let’s sew for Barbie

In the last weeks I felt the wish to sew something for Barbie just for fun… but none of these mommy made clothes where you can see the intention but the implementation is very bad. Sorry for the tapeworm set. I know it’s awful but I’m good at writing long sentences. My teachers had to read a lot when I wrote essays as exams. Anyway I felt the wish to sew a dress or a skirt for Barbie the same style Mattel did for the Vintage Barbie dolls (1959 -1967 Vintage era).

So I bought a pattern and I had the first problem in finding the right material. I bought some fabric for my experiments and asked the saleswoman what fabric they used. I took a Sunflower dress with me and showed her the fabric. She told me it was sewing tulle. Strange stuff. They had none in the store and didn’t offer to order some. After a while I found one shop with the right offer online and I ordered it.

I decided to tape my experiences because you might have the problems too when you are looking for this material. It doesn’t seem to be common anymore. Anyway, here’s the link to my video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lm_i9RVkX0k
