My Size Barbie by Project-27 My Size Barbie by Project-27
Today was my final for costume construction II and this was my project =) I drafted the pattern and 'made' the fabric (alternating strips of black and white fabric, cut to contour to the body like the barbie version) There's lots I'm unhappy with still, but considering the time I spent on it this turned out not so bad. There were 3 of us in the costume shop last night, and we decided this morning we were ready for project runway after last night. None of us started working on our final projects (due at 9am) until yesterday. We all had our designs, and at least some of it patterned out (I, for example, had already created the main pattern for the shape of my swimsuit, but had not yet drawn out where the stripes would be) The other 2 stayed in the shop all night, I went home and at least was able to get 2 hours of sleep and a shower before coming back =)

In any case, yay for barbie!! It's going to be a fun costume for DragonCon this year =)

Iremember when the original of this barbie came out. The swimsuit was designed by Bob Mackie. I learned about Barbies and fashion design from my sister when she started designing her own barbie clothes back in the late 1960's. Beautiful job, the suit looks amazing, and looks amazing on you.
