21 Jul 5 Favorite Pink Garments, A Tribute to Barbie
It’s Barbie’s big day! Will you be going ? In Pink? 😊
One of the best and most memorable Christmas gifts I ever received was a box of Barbie clothes made by my Aunt Maggie. She must have made 50 garments including a wedding gown! I know this gift of love has influenced my interest in sewing and fashion. My Barbie looked more like this…..
…..and what I just learned recently is Barbie was designed as a 19 year-old. Eternal of course 😉 That was 64 years ago.
I love Barbie’s ever changing image have followed Barbie Style on Instagram for years.
Today, I’m celebrating this icon’s movie premier with a look back to five favorite pink garments I’ve made. Would Barbie wear any of these?…….. 😂😂 Maybe the shorts……

I love these pull on stretch denim pink jeans because they fit. There is no creasing behind the knees thanks to a tip I received from a reader! Barbie thinks she would not wear pull ons but her jeans only look like they have a zipper!

This is a favorite pink garment because it is a perfect pop of color on a cold winter day! I love the pocket trim I made for the dress, and the topstitching. I still wear this dress but have only made it once.

These flat front scallop hem shorts are the best! I customized the shorts with a batiste lining and redesigned the waistband to incorporate the zipper. A reader introduced me to this pattern which I have made several times.

I haven’t seen Barbie in many shifts, but I do wonder if she wears Lilly Pulitzer……. I love a good fitting shift and believe Barbie would too!

Party central! Thank you Carlos for designing this wonderful pattern! I think Barbie would look so cute in this dress!
Everyday may not be a pink day, but pink is here to stay!
Cheers to Barbie and may she live on another 64 years 😘😘
