This is a great idea! Adding this to my "yet another reason I need to learn to sew" list. My daughter loves Barbies and I hate their clothes. The Disney Princess dolls are much more modest but there's not a lot of fashion choices for them.

This particular Barbie has a relatively small (meaning normal size for humans) chest.  She is an odd doll though, to me, because you can trade her HEAD for other heads.   I'd never heard of her, but then I haven't kept up with Barbie for many many years.

If you found this barbie, I think the crochet barbie clothes you are talking about would fit rather nicely. Smiley

My daughter got this one with the swapping head for her birthday! Such a odd idea, but she was happy enough.

I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I agree Barbie clothes are so skimpy. I like the "after" dresses better.

One of the first things I ever sewed were 'wizard robes' for my Barbie, lol! Those dresses are cute!

Of course...even with appropriate clothes little girls are going to leave naked Barbies all around the house. That's just how it is! LOL.

I've fixed that on one of our Barbies, well, a Liv doll. I sewed on a strapless swimsuit after I got tired of reclothing the nekked ladies everyday. Call me a prude, but nude dolls with their limbs at weird angles bother me. Remind me of corpses or something.

ewwww! 
I think this would totally have creeped me out as a child but after the first shock we probably would have decapitated her on a regular basis. Princess Langwidere of Ev, you know. 

The clothes you are fixing up look great. I tried to do this when I was a teen and can only be glad that I now have a son and won't have to try again for a while.  It was tough!

I love what you have done with the outfits you bought & fixing them to be longer & not show so much skin. I have made several Barbie outfits & Ken too.  I have a lot of the 50's, 60's, 70's, patterns & some crochet & maybe knit patterns. Some things I make up myself, but I love making them. Also I have the different Barbie Doll heads, it was Beauty Salon kit with different chemicals to change the color of the hair. Since that was what I was going to become, a Hair Stylist when I got older I wanted it to pratice on. I had a lot of fun with it.  Roll Eyes
Thanks for showing, & would like to see more of your vintage outfits when you get them made.  Cheesy
