Debutante Ball

Posted by helen on January 3, 2019

I was very disappointed when I heard that Mattel will remake “Busy Gal” & “Astronaut” to celebrate Barbie’s 60th Anniversary as a career girl. Both have been reproduced before, why making the same thing again & again if your new price can not beat eBay price?

I went through Mattel’s Vintage Archive on Barbie Signature website, and I think this “Debutante ball” sounds like a perfect choice for 60th anniversary.

I searched the dress on eBay and  found its very expensive,  and it bothers me that  the bodice of the dress doesn’t fit  the doll:

so I tried to make one for my doll:
