Barbie Mondays - Little Green Dress

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Barbie Mondays. I hope you'll enjoy these posts as I share the Barbie clothes I made for my little grand daughter, Carter.
I had to pop into Walmart and buy another Barbie model. Look at her hair! Oh, she's a beauty.
I made this darling little fitted green dress in this sweet little polka dot fabric.
 It has little cap sleeves and look at the darts in the front. There's also darts in the back.
 This style looks so attractive on the tall and trim Barbie.
Just perfect for church, shopping or a luncheon don't you think?

As I was looking for patterns I found a blog called "Modest Barbie Stlye" and this young mother tells about how the clothes you buy for Barbie are not very lady like and she wanted to make clothes for her daughters Barbies that looked feminine and that would reflect her idea of modesty. She made some really sweet clothes. She doesn't have patterns but she did sell the outfits but unfortunately she doesn't blog any more but her blog is still up if you'd like to see it. I feel the same way as I want Carter to enjoy dressing Barbie but I want the clothes to look lady like.
Here's her blog if you'd like to read her story and see the adorable clothes - Modest Barbie Style.

Okie dokie, hope you've enjoyed my Barbie Monday and I'll see you next week!

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

It's Not Easy Bein' Green

It's not easy bein' green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer bein' red or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy bein' green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
'Cause you're not standing out like flashy sparkles
On the water or stars in the sky

But green is the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly like
And green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
~ sung by Van Morrison
