Barbie Mondays - All About the Dress

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome again to Barbie Mondays. Hope you're enjoying these little Barbie clothes I've made and are having fun with me. So on we go...
Here is Barbie all stylish and comfy in a sweet little cream print dress. Just perfect for a picnic or a stroll.
I added a little lace for straps instead of fabric and added a little flower for her to feel special. The bodice of the dress is fitted with two darts to help show off her curves. :) I show off my curves too but I'm afraid my curves are not as attractive. Oh, I'm getting off the subject!
Barbie looks cool, calm and collected in her sundress. 
I don't remember where the pattern is for this dress. I'm old, ya know! :)
 Now for a late night supper or a casual party, Barbie will look all elegant in this long blue dress.
 There's more darts for the curves! :) This is really a sweet fabric and just perfect for Barbie.
I used this pattern earlier and showed you for a little short dress. I just made it longer and added the ruffle. Oh, don't look at at seam and knot on the ruffle ( it was supposed to go in the back) As perfect as I try to be, I make an oops occasionally! 

Hope you've liked these two Barbie dresses and you notice - no shoes! That's the way I go around most of the day - shoeless and clueless! :)

I wanted you to know we're in New York now and in our house but I'm just so very busy with the clean up (yuck!!), painting and waiting on our furniture and will start blogging about this adventure as soon as I can find my shoes! :) Thank you so much for visiting my tiny blog.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Devil With the Blue Dress On

Fee, fee, fi, fi, fo-fo, fum
Look at Molly now [or look out once again, now], here she comes
Wearin' her wig hat and shades to match
She's got high-heel shoes and an alligator hat
Wearin' her pearls and her diamond rings
She's got bracelets on her fingers, now, and everything
She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Wearin' her perfume, Chanel No. 5
Got to be the finest girl alive
She walks real cool, catches everybody's eye
She's got such good lovin' that they can't say goodbye
Not too skinny, she's not too fat
She's a real humdinger and I like it like that
She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
