One of my regular blogs to read is Lydia's Post, written by the lovely Diane - we both have many of the same interests and it's amazing the things that we both share a love of - well, now we share the same Barbie dress. Diane has done a couple of posts lately on her childhood Barbies's - Monday's post really caught my eye - there was a pink crocheted dress just like mine! Amazed!! What are the chances of that???
Diane and I decided to both do a post on Barbie's pink dress! Diane's dress is a mini, and she has matching underpants!! Head on over to Lydia's Post and check out that lovely pink mini!
My great aunt used to make all my Barbie clothes and I think my grandmother made a few too - I still remember getting a whole box of these hand made Barbie clothes one Christmas -what a gift!! I blogged about my Barbie and some of these great clothes last year right here.
This is Diane's pattern - I couldn't believe it when I saw it, I knew I had some of these outfits and here they are....
A corduroy coat is always nice!
This gown is missing the top part
She must have had a lot of scrap corduroy on hand!
This jacket doesn't have the hood like in the pattern but it looks very similar
