Midnight Blooms for Barbie and friends

What’s better than a Barbie dress made from a vintage hankie? How about a dress made from two vintage hankies! I discovered I had two hankies that coordinated beautifully — one a designer printed hankie and one with hand embroidered edges. I’d been wanting to try substituting a hankie with beautiful edging for lace on this skirt pattern, and I had enough of the hankie left to continue it onto the bodice (just had to draft a new bodice pattern to make it work). I love how the triangles of embroidered hankie emphasize the hourglass shape. And with all the flowers on the dress, I just had to do the photo shoot in my flower shop. Fashion available now in my Etsy shop.
