a frustrated evening…

Posted by helen on January 10, 2012

 “Enchanted Evening”–the iconic dress stands test of the time,  I have made a few replicas before, they were  in gold, Pink & black…  since the Valentine’s day is coming soon, I thought it would be fun to make one in red.  but I really didnt have fun making it,  — as I  have forgotton how it was done– both my Originals & replicas  have gone to eBay & disappeared  forever… 

 it took me hours & hours to remake it… finally its done, but I was frustrated…  stupid, isnt it? 

here is  how it looks like, I think its better than Mattel’s  Repro version — as mine has longer  &  larger trains,  it killed plenty  fabric…


I didnt  have patience left to make a pair of gloves for her… 

below are the ones I made before,  I had the “Mattel Original” on hand at that time, the replica job was pretty easy:

I cant find photos of the Blac one.

wow,  look at Barbie’s tiny waist, I must say, Barbie really has the best body to carry this dress…

    This is such a classic dress. I’m sure I have saved photos of it. I will let you know. Sorry it was so frustrating but it is an enchanting dress!
