Barbie Mondays - Funky Blue Dress and Sock Clothes

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome again to Barbie Mondays. This was the most fun and easy little dress to whip up.
This little dress reminded me so much of the late 60s and early 70s, with mini dresses and funky angel wing sleeves.
Isn't it just the cutest thing? And this Barbie is really sassy and she's dancing for us.
Shake your groove thang, shake your groove thang...yeah yeah! :)

While I was browsing around looking for Barbie clothes I kept seeing 'sock clothes' and of course I had to try it. I bought colorful ankle socks and but I could have made longer clothes and more clothes if I had bought turn down socks. Are those called tube socks.
 
Turned out pretty cute, huh? These gals are ready for a day of fun, can you tell?
Just grabbed my scissors and went to town. The hats are the toe of the socks.
The shirts were cut from the top of the sock. I just cut out little holes for the arms.
The skirt was the middle of the sock and I sewed a little on both sides so it would fit her waist and not fall down! Now that would have been a disaster. Then I made the shorts from the middle of the sock too. I took them to the sewing machine and seamed an upside down U to make the legs and I seamed both sides like the skirt for the waist.

These two gals are very happy with their sock clothes! Talk about easy peasy! Hope you've liked  this edition of the Barbie clothes.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

Shake Your Groove Thing

There's nothing more that I like to do
Than take the floor and dance with you
Keep dancing, let's keep dancing
Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah
Show 'em how to do it now
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah
Show 'em how to do it now
Show 'em how to do it now
Let's show the world we can dance
Bad enough to strut my stuff
The music gives us a chance
We do more out on the floor
Grooving loose, or heart to heart
We put in motion every single part
Funky sounds, wall to wall
We're bumping booties
Having us a ball you all
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah
Show 'em how to do it now
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah
Show 'em how to do it now
We've got the rhythm tonight
All the rest know we're the best
Our shadows flash in the light
Twisting, turning we keep burning
Shake it high or shake it low
We take our bodies where they wanna go
Feel that beat, never stop
Oh hold me tight, spinning like a top
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah
Show 'em how to do it now
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah
Show 'em how to do it now
There's nothing more that I like to do
Than take the floor and dance with you
Keep dancing, let's keep dancing
Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it
Grooving loose or heart to heart
We put in motion every single part
Funky sounds, wall to wall
We're bumping booties
Having us a ball, you all
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah
Show 'em how to do it now
Shake your groove thing
Shake your groove thing, yeah yeah

Let's get on down
Show 'em how to do it now
Show 'em how to do it now
Show 'em how to do it now
Shake your groove thing
Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it
Pump up your booties now
Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it
A little freakishness
Shake it, shake it
Shake it, shake it
Do it too you all
