So I went out to a Gothic/industrial club for there anti-goth party... Smiley 
Fun right!!  But everything I have is kinda goth/industrial..  expt this great big pink skirt I got a goodwill for $3 a while back..
So I needed to come up with a idea to use that.  So I decided to go as Barbie... how anti-goth is that! I even had a Blondie long wig..
I made this fashion corset in about a day., (mind you I woke up in CT, and started it at a friends house, drove home to Mass, finished it and went to the club)..
I thought it looked kinda Barbie... I mean... Barbie is all about the Glitter Dot fabrics right?? 

My friend just sent me a photo taken from the club, and yes this is the only photo I have of that night.  I had to cut my friend out of the photo due to the fact that she would kill me..  but here you have it:

Simplicity pattern # 5006 was used, but changes had to be made, I'm 100 lbs, and a A cup..  (also its not the best finishing job, I was in a rush to get to the club)
so do you thing Barbie would have worn it?

WOW that is fantastic! I def. think Barbie would approve Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

That's awesome. It's so barbie-esque and yet so not. Great job! It doesn't look like you rushed at all. I would wear that...not just as a barbie costume.

Ich Liebe Dich.
