So all that #thedollevolves stuff was pretty exciting, and I've got my hands on a tall Barbie! She's called "Terrific Teal" and she has the most incredible orange curls. Petite Barbie ("Blue Brocade") is in the mail, and the curvy Barbie I want ("Spring Into Style") is still "coming soon". I also tentatively have my eye on the original-Barbie-shape "B-Fabulous".
Tall Barbie doesn't have much clothing. Naturally, I was compelled to make some for her. First is a casual yukata, because it's nice and simple and made out of straight seams and doesn't have gathering or darts.
I'm writing up the yukata pattern to sell on Etsy. Does anyone want a copy to test out for me? I also have grand plans to create Barbie-scale fabrics with suitable yukata- and kimono-style patterns to sell on Spoonflower. Previews of a couple of designs, as well as photos of Barbie's new yukata, are under the cut!
These designs obviously need more detail, and I'm thinking of adding bolder outlines to the purple one.
I am reminded of my desire for a camera that isn't attached to a phone.
