My daughter is most definitely a Barbie girl. Her original request for a “barbie and the pink shoes” ballet dress was changed to a barbie princess when she refused to allow me to trim her tulle skirt to a ballet length. She is seven with the mind set .. more is always better. The only big purchase was the bolt of 20 yards of pink tulle, and yes, the skirt has all 20. The bodice was made from a thrift store prom dress we found that filled us with oohs and ahhhs when we saw it. My serger definitly got a workout on the petal portion of the bodice.The cape is made from the bustle fabric on a thrift store wedding dress and the lining from the prom dress. I have a feeling this will be worn on most shopping days to the supermarket.
