blue & white beaded gown

Posted by helen on June 1, 2013

Spent my entire evening to  try out my “Napkin-folding” skills.   not bad, isnt it? but all the “beads” are glued on, no sewing involved. I learned that from Mattel –cost effective.

The dress is in white, so later I can fold more “Napkins” in different colors, White is a perfect match to all the colors.

who wears it better?

    Lovely! I like this more than the new Barbie one… it’s less napkin-y! hahaha lovely work!

    You always amaze me how you copy dresses and make them even better. I like it on the dark skin silky better. Makes both doll and dress look amazing.

    I actually think both dolls look great in the dress (which is beautifully done). The coloring goes well with both.

    Are we officially calling this the “Napkin Dress”? Hehe! It’s really beautiful…you did a very nice job on the folds! The color is sooo pretty, and looks wonderful on both dolls…but because I’m especially fond of AA dolls, I’m going to choose the AA doll as *wearing it best*! :o)

    I really love the sky blue color! It looks much better than black/white. Not very fond of black/white gown. I think the CC looks much better because the AA doll hair looks too casual for such a formal dress. My vote is for the AA doll. Awesome job very beautiful Helen!

    p.s. this color scheme and pleating remind me of the winning collection of Project Runway winner Leanne Marshall.
