Barbie Mondays - Dressed For The Ball

Hello Dear Ones and welcome to Barbie Mondays. I'll be preposting for a while as I'm getting ready for our move, so just bare with me and I'll be back for real in a little while.
Okay, if you've not been here before, I'm sharing the many Barbie outfits I've made for my little grand daughter. So sit back and relax and enjoy being a young 'un again. :)
I decided it would be fun for Carter to have some formal wear for Barbie since she's all into princesses right now. I found that beautiful fabric for her coat and it turned out well I thought.
Here's the pattern for the coat I just made it longer.
There's lots of free patterns on this site but it's in French :)
This gown turned out to be a big boo boo. The pattern was way too big so I added the tucks at the shoulders to try and take it up. It hung like a night gown so I tried to fancy it up with the gathered waist piece. Anyway, it turned out yucky. You win some and loose some :(
I loved this blue fabric although it raveled quite a bit and made Barbie a nice long evening gown. Notice another new model. :)
 I made her a long scarf too. It can be used as a shawl for cool evenings or...
tossed around her most dainty long neck to look very elegant. Doesn't she look pretty?

I'm so sorry, I can't figure out which pattern I used for this dress.

Now our Barbie is ready to go to an elegant ball or formal evening party and she'll be the nicest dressed doll there, well, if she leaves the boo boo gown at home! ;) Carter loved these dressy clothes and then she told me that Barbie could not go to the ball without shoes! Of course not! So she searched and searched and found some chunky hot pink ones! Off Barbie went to the ball! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Blue Velvet

She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light
From the stars
She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet were her eyes
Warmer than May her tender sighs
Love was ours
Ours a love I held tightly
Feeling the rapture grow
Like a flame burning brightly
But when she left, gone was the glow of
Blue velvet
But in my heart there'll always be
Precious and warm, a memory
Through the years
And I still can see blue velvet
Through my tears
