Early 1960s Christmas dress for Barbie

Early 1960s Christmas dress for Barbie
Early 1960s Christmas dress for Barbie

Pattern Description:

I love to create clothes for Barbie from different time periods. This is a early 1960s cocktail dress in retro colors of teal and red.

The bodice of the dress is put together in an unusual way, but I've included photos in the pattern to guide you through the process.

Please note: This pattern is the same as "Lady of the Forest" except that it is for a Barbie size doll and "Lady" is for a 16" fashion doll.

Feel free to sell any items you make from my patterns (but do not mass produce). Please do not resell the patterns themselves or make them available online. They are copyrighted.
