In my previous post I featured a few pieces of dolly dress which I found during my thrift store shopping. I have limited time and photo shooting comes after my household chores 😦 so by the time I’m finished, the sun is almost setting.
I choose 5 dolls, one of them is a vintage reproduction Barbie which I bought for only Php125.00! Wow! She was not wearing her original clothes when I found her, but she’s in very good condition. I have no time to research who she is, my only clues are her earrings.
Second doll is Sidney from America’s Next Top Model, found her with original clothes and lovely sandals. The outfit is like a Yukata on her, but would look like a Kimono to a much smaller doll, Oh well.
Third doll is supposed to be the Fair Lady outfit, but I haven’t taken her picture yet, so here is Ms. Carol Spencer’s creation. The doll I used is from a Barbie Collector series, I do not know which one, again, earrings are my only clues, will look that up later if my time permits. She’s got rooted eyelashes, her hair was in swirly style, I don’t remember.
It took me quite some time before I was able to put the dress on her, the gown fits her perfectly! You can create a style in this gown in many ways, it’s just that I only have 3 in my mind because the sun is almost down, I’m already in a hurry.
To be continued.
Last Sunday I had a few hours of free time so I opened pandora’s box 😉 in an attempt to organize Barbie’s clothes that have accumulated over the years. I couldn’t remember the last time I tried sorting, I want to continue where I left off. I found out I haven’t really done much and seeing my bin with the contents in shambles, I felt like having a headache!
I changed my mind 🙂 and decided to do it next week instead. I just picked 5 outfit and 5 dolls to try them on. All of these are thrift store finds in mint condition.
JAPANESE YUKATA, the sleeves are not longer than the thigh, it does not have any label so I think this is one of those made to order, got lost in the mail, and landed in my bin 😉
This one has no label also, so I do not know to which doll this was made for. Neatly sewn! With Nagajuban undergarment.
Traditional Korean wedding dress, no label.
Ascot Dress from My Fair Lady, handmade replica for Barbie, no label.
I was really amazed, I thought it was original Mattel, but nope, this is handmade. Judging from the snap button, this was probably made during the 70’s?
Barbie Benefit Ball Gown 1992 from the Classique Collection Limited Edition created by Designer Carol Spencer!
I found this along with another creation of Carol Spencer sometime in Year 2012! I have forgotten about it coz I had it hung inside my wardrobe cabinet. I really liked that they used plastic mini zipper than the velcro that often damage the fabric.
