The words "free pattern" are angled across a turquoise blue linen background, above the ChellyWood.com logo, and beside these is a Made to Move Barbie who carries a pretty white cotton purse with a yellow strap. The white cotton of the purse is decorated with a tiny fruits pattern. Her dress is made of the same white cotton "fruity" fabric, and the dress has cotton straps made of the same material. The skirt of the sundress is short. She wears yellow plastic sandals.

With a close-up photo of Made to Move Barbie's Bermuda shorts from the back, we can see the double-stitching detail around the pocket, the fact that the tank top is lined with a burgundy-on-white print cotton fabric, and the tank top closes at the back with red Velcro. The words that slant across this image sideways say, "make room for a pocket." The ChellyWood.com logo appears in the lower right hand side of the image.
