HI Everyone,

I have been working on this wedding present for my best friend and I was really excited about how it turned out so I thought I would share.

I wanted to make her a replica of her wedding dress on a Barbie. I think it might be something cool to have next to her wedding photos - kind of like displaying her dress all the time.

My disclaimer is that this is the first attempt ever at Barbie clothing - I have seen pictures of people who do amazing things - this is not one of those.

Let me know what you think. I have included pics of the Barbie as well as some detail shots of her dress. Pay no attention to my careless censoring of her face!  Wink

Thanks for looking!

Barbie - full dress


Bride - holding Barbie (...weird...)

the train is bloody well gorgeous. and trust me, it's about a thousand times better then the first thing i made for my stacie doll.

if i was the bride, i'd make sure it was put in a highly prominent place.
