YSL Purple Roses for Barbie and friends

Inspired by another vintage sewing pattern, I just finished this lovely dress featuring elbow length bell sleeves and a full skirt. Sewn entirely by hand from a vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief, dress also comes with coordinating magnetic rhinestone brooch. Available now in my Etsy shop.

Halloween Party for Barbie and friends

It’s very rare to find a Halloween themed vintage handkerchief, so when I found this one, I snapped it up. Paired with a witches hat (made from a hair ornament), your doll will be all set for her next Halloween party in this dress that features black cats on brooms, pumpkins, and spider webs. Available now in my Etsy shop.

B is for Burberry – for Barbie and friends

When I think Burberry, I think plaid. But they do more than plaid, as attested to by this feminine floral handkerchief. The little “B’s” may be for Burberry … but I also think Barbie. Although, this dress will fit a variety of dolls. I’ve tried it on vintage Barbie, Poppy Parker, Victoire Roux, Color Infusion, Elyse Jolie, and Silkstone Barbie and it fits them all quite nicely. Magnetic rhinestone brooch included. Available now in my Etsy shop.

Frisky Kittens for Barbie and friends

I still had half of this adorable handkerchief adorned with kittens, so I decided to try out another new pattern. For this one, I made a fitted skirt that flounces at the knee for ease of movement and a short sleeve bodice lightly gathered onto the waistband. Dress available now in my Etsy shop. Sewing pattern coming soon!

Petit Violets for Barbie and friends

I couldn’t believe my luck when I found this gorgeous petit point handkerchief. The embroidery is so finely detailed, I kind of felt bad cutting it up (not too bad, though, as I seemed to manage it!). This dress will fit a variety of dolls, as I tried it on many of my girls before I picked Silkstone Audrey Hepburn to model. What can I say, she’s a classic. Available now in my Etsy shop.
