How many of you are tired of seeing barbies lying around the house in various stages of disarray .. I am !! Lil P has 7 barbies gifted to her.. (God,Why!!!!) On a whim she keeps changing their dresses.. and with the dolls having stiff hands and unsightly shapes, most of their original dresses are torn.
Today morning was the last straw. I went to clean up her play room and saw 7 barbies all n***d .. when I asked her why? Lil P said that they didn’t have any night dresses.. so she tried to tie a kerchief around them and then forgot about it .. She declared that her barbies needed more dresses that were easy to put and remove.. And I hit upon a brilliant idea ( atleast I feel so! 😉 )
I picked up her old socks lying around (the ones she had outgrown) and I had kept aside to make the gnomes – a snip here and a snip there and voila.. We had our very own No sew barbie dresses. Don’t these lasses look pretty now? Lil P is over the moon. We turned our white socks into night wear and the colored ones for day time.. I made them a little trendy by adding a satin bow to their waist.
Here’s how I made them ..
Lay down an old sock flat on a table .. a 2-4 year old size works best because the heel part umm falls correctly over the barbies bum.. if u know what I’m saying..
Cut as shown in diagram.. and you are done..
If you want to make it fancier, you can use glue , sequins, ribbons as a bow or a sash or a belt.. .or create a sleeveless dress..
