Wednesday Wonder - "Pretty in Pink"

"Pretty in Pink"

A Charity Auction to raise money for the Wellspring cancer support centres presented by Jonathon's Gallery
Mother's Day
Sunday May 10. 2010
This is my donation - a two piece elegant gown for Barbie, doll and stand included.
The overskirt has 3 tiers for maximum fullness cut to add the train effect.
The main gown is one-shouldered with a single puffy sleeve, matching fabric covered button on the bodice back, and pearl trim along the lower hem of the gown.
In her hair, pink 'diamonds'.
Click here to see more photos of this beautiful gown.

Barbie is actually a Teresa. (shhh!)
And this is how she looked when I found her ~ and rescued her for this project:

Just a bit of dish soap, some fabric softener, perm rods and boiling water, and voila! she was transformed.
For Barbie gowns and dresses available for sale, please visit my Etsy shop at ennadoolf.etsy.com

My sister also made a gown for a Barbie!

Her gown is crocheted from beautiful pale pink cotton and has tiny beads hand-sewn onto the train.

There are matching gloves, necklace and a beautiful pale pink boa to accessorize.

The Barbie was donated by my daughter from the dolls we still have in boxes in the basement.

Both dolls have now been delivered to Jonathons and await the auction on Sunday!

Crochet Patterns for fashion dolls like Barbie, are available in our Etsy shop Patterns and Such.
