Fashion Ave — Mint Classic Fashion

Posted by helen on March 27, 2018

I found this “Fashion Avenue Classic Mint Fashion Pack”  yesterday in one of my “Treasure or Trash” boxes,

I bought this pack at Barbie Convention. the color matches my travel doll’s hair perfectly. Its a smart design—the credit goes to the Pattern Maker, very simple pattern, yet still fit (fit TNT 1966 body),  the straight line cutting makes the sewing job easy.  however, the low-quality black ribbon trim at the bottom hem looks incredibly cheap,  it  ruined the whole thing.

A little alteration to replace the cheap ribbon with New black fabric border & green lace trim:

Doll  enjoys her new dress & spring time:

since I admire the cleverness of the  pattern-maker so much, I replicated one in white

    How very, very pretty your alteration has become, Helen. Both of your dresses are lovely. Thank you for taking time to share them with us.

    It’s amazing what a small change can do for something you’d rather trash or give away. The color is perfect with her red hair and changing out the ribbon took the dress from cheap to classy. The ribbon was too thin in weight. Super job. The black and white dress is so pretty.

      Thank you, Sandra. little things make big differences. I’m sure Barbie knows it, but she prefers to save a couple of cents–whatever costs less is her choice. lol
