It's Jungle January, of course!! I've been scheming all winter, with visions of leopard and zebra in my head. This year, I thought we'd start off with something a little different.
I had a little help from the ultimate fashionista, Barbie.
Barbie's lovely ensemble is from McCalls 6232 . It is a complete Barbie wardrobe pattern, and today we're lounging in a fitted, turtleneck sleeveless sheath and a chic coat with a fitted bodice, full skirt and contrast cuffs and collar.
Barbie struts her stuff in this full length leopard gown, made from leftover velveteen. Her gown features a high turtleneck and a knee length slit. It has a center back closure of velcro, for ease of dressing.
For those nippy evenings waving to her adoring fans, she dons a lovely coat of hot pink interlock. It is trimmed with velveteen to match her gown and closes with a single snap. (Aside: I totally want a grown up version of this coat.)
Barbie is so thrilled you came over to visit the Dream House and to admire the latest fashions with her. She hopes your jungle sewing is going well!
