#Paris #Barbie exhibit featured in my #dolls video on Youtube

For those of you who don’t know, a “doll play video” is a video that tells a story from a doll’s point of view.

I found it ironic, while enjoying my one-time vacation in Paris, that near … Continue reading #Paris #Barbie exhibit featured in my #dolls video on Youtube

Please visit for FREE printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. Mattel's tall Barbie is shown wearing a handmade quinceanera dress with lace embellishments at the bottom of the skirt and on the straps for the bodice of the dress. She holds one hand out to show how the skirt flows, and Tall Barbie's other hand it on her waist but hidden somewhat behind her. She stands on a wooden-looking floor in a 1:6 scale diorama. On the wall behind her is the painting of Romeo and Juliet, along with two items of wicker furniture: a table and a chair. The table holds a porcelain tea set painted with tiny pink flowers that match her lovely quinceanera dress. The Tall Barbie smiles softly with pink painted-on lipstick. Her eyes look slightly left, not quite staring into the camera. The watermark on this image says FREE doll clothes patterns and tutorials.
