A Modest Barbie Dress Pattern with a real sleeve and Step-by-Step instructions with TONS of pictures. Includes alt sleeve and Skirt to make "Scarlett O'Hara" Barbie Dress I am tired of all the sleeveless, strapless, practically SKIRT-less Barbie dresses out there. I wouldn't put my daughter in a dress like that, so why would I want her playing with a doll dressed so ridiculously. It seems like every Barbie in the store is ready to hit the club- or get into some serious trouble! I wanted a pattern that I could sew up confidently and still have it be pretty and feminine. I couldn't find what I was looking for and had very little success using "commercially made" patterns. So I made one. I have sewn this pattern countless times now and little girls love it EVERY time. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should have some basic sewing skills, and have some experience reading a pattern- But even beginners can probably give it a go- lots of pictures and step by step instructions SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Made to fit a Modern Barbie- would need modifications to fit a barbie from the 80's or 90's

Recommended with this pattern
