Introduction: Fashion Doll Halter Dress
Things you need:1. Small piece of fabric as long as your doll, and wide enough to wrap around the doll over the bust.2. A piece of ribbon, jute, hemp, or strip of matching fabric for tying the dress around the neck.3. It is easier to do trial and error with the newpaper instead of the fabric so use this method. To make pattern you will need to cut a piece of newspaper the same size as your fabric. Your fabric and pattern will be longer than it is wide. Fold this across the narrow end to make a double layer of newspaper. The narrow top section should be 1.5 times the width of Barbie at the bust line. The underarm cuts need to be deeper than you want them to fall on the doll (almost to the waist). Mine are a little shallow in this picture. Lay this on barbie above the bust and wrap sides around to see how the underarm section lays. As long as the paper does not interfere with arm movement,
it is low enough. Lay your pattern on top of the fabric and then cut out the matching armhole. You can see the fabric and pattern are the same. :)You can now fold over the narrow part of the fabric about 1/2 inch, and sew it down. Sew close to the edge but not too close. You do NOT want the stitching to pull out. Now you need your piece of tying accessory. I really enjoyed working with hemp because it was easy to insert through the casing. You could also use embroidery floss with a needle to pass it through the casing because it is a really short distance.
Fold dress in half, wrong side out. Sew the edges together. However, remember that you need to have room for it to fit over the posterior of Barbie. YOu can also tie something around the middle to add definition to the dress. My daughter used a ponytail elastic. It looked great!.
