Barbie Monday - Paisley and Red Dresses

Hello, Dear Ones, and it's Barbie Monday again.
 Today I wanted to show you this darling little dress made from a small paisley print.
This little dress is both modest and chic with 3/4 length sleeves so your Barbie will look stunning in this. Doesn't my little model have the prettiest of hair?
To be that thin, have that beautiful hair and look that good in my clothes! Well, I can dream! :)
There is a neck facing which I didn't use. I just turned the neck down and topstitched it. Also, The sleeves are cut right with the front of the dress so as you're sewing up the side seams you sew up the underarm seam as well.

Now it was time to make another little dress! This was the sweetest fabric and just perfect for Barbie clothes. This little dress has a square neck, long sleeves and a gathered skirt. Again, I was proud of how this turned out. Barbie was getting a little hot, you know Texas summers, so she tied her long hair back with a little piece of yarn! ;)
I added a little lace around the square neck and at the hem. You'll see two sets of stitching on the hem. One was for the hem and the other for the lace. Now Barbie has two new dresses and I think she looks very nice. If you'd like to make this little red dress:

 Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

She's A Lady

Well she's all you'd ever want,
She's the kind they'd like to flaunt and take to dinner.
Well she always knows her place.
She's got style, she's got grace, She's a winner.
She's a Lady. Whoa whoa whoa, She's a Lady.
Talkin' about that little lady, and the lady is mine.
Well she's never in the way
Always something nice to say, Oh what a blessing.
I can leave her on her own
Knowing she's okay alone, and there's no messing.
She's a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa. She's a lady.
Talkin' about that little lady, and the lady is mine.
Well she never asks for very much and I don't refuse her.
Always treat her with respect, I never would abuse her.
What she's got is hard to find, and I don't want to lose her
Help me build a mountain from my little pile of clay. Hey, hey, hey.
Well she knows what I'm about,
She can take what I dish out, and that's not easy,
Well she knows me through and through,
She knows just what to do, and how to please me.
She's a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa. She's a lady.
Talkin' about that little lady and the lady is mine.
Yeah yeah yeah She's a Lady
Listen to me baby, She's a Lady
Whoa whoa whoa, She's a Lady
And the Lady is mine
Yeah yeah yeah She's a Lady
Talkin about this little lady
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa and the lady is mine
Yeah yeah She's a Lady
And the Lady is mine.
