Blushing Bride

UGH!! Can I barf now? My eyes are bugging out, my rear is tired of this chair, and I am all out of white thread.
A Barbie wedding dress is enough to set me off sewing for at least a week. Sadly, I have 2 more to go... all sold already.
As much as I love sewing for Barbie, there are many aspects of this dress I would rather not revisit. Namely: Sewing around beads, double puffing sleeves, and (GASP!) having to hand-sew the veil! (I make a point never to make anything that I can't fit in my machine, except buttons and snaps, which are bad enough!)
Do you think it was worth it? Do you think Barbie will be happy on her big day? You be the judge.


  1. As one of those who is buying one of the future wedding dresses, I say yes! It is gorgeous and my daughter is going to absolutely love it!

  2. Wow. Definitely amazing. I'm sorry it's such a hard job, but I'd say it's worth it!

  3. I'm so glad you are real and share the hardships of being a modest barbie clothes designer!!! As customers, we should know the blood, sweat and swearing that goes into these intricate outfits. Truly breathtaking. She should be featured in Vogue.

  4. Its absolutely perfect!! Thank you soooo much! I'm sorry it was such a pain! And sorry you have to do it again for my mom! My daughter will love this dress! I will send your check out asap!

  5. So now is probably not a good time to place a Christmas order huh?!? I love the dress!! Thank you for all your blood, sweat, and tears!!! So worth it!
