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

This rose dress was wore by Kim Novak in Film “Phffft”, she played a small part  in the film. her role in this movie probably has been forgotten, but the picture of this Rose Dress often pops up on internet, there are thousands of Pins on Pinterests.

Barbie enjoys to own the style:

Posted by helen on August 18, 2011

$10 off on “pillow talk” giftset. if you want them, that’s a great deal, as you also get “buy more save more” discount


They are not  type of  the dolls I like, I honestly dont like male doll with painted hair.

my 5th eBay anniversary

Posted by helen on June 25, 2011

eBay sent me a congratulation letter 

wow,  5 short or long years!

 I still remember the first doll I sold on ebay was Fashion Fever Modern trend Lea, I sold her for 99 ¢ , today, her price can go as high as $120.

I dont remember which doll was the first doll I bought from ebay.

eBay has changed so much, so have I.

t’s your eBay anniversary–year 5
We want to say thanks and let you know how much we value
having you as an eBay community member. All of us at eBay
wish you the very best in the year to come.

Thank you!

Silkstone–the Calendar Girl

Posted by helen on September 2, 2010

okay, people, here comes a new release, silkstone 2011 Calendar girl (well, she is Miss July  in your 2011 Barbie Calendar)

I should have worked on the Modern Black Barbie, but I dont have the right fabric, so I ended up making Robert Best’s Calendar Girl,  Miss July , 2011. hope you like her.

I first thought the costumes were super easy, but it wasnt easy. working with tiny pieces of Organza, taffeta & sequins has  never been easy!!  the organza part almost killed me.

I survived!

grand opennings

Posted by helen on March 4, 2010

many stores near my home have run out of business, “Space for Rent” signs are everywhere. stores like “Creativities” & “Treasure hunts” were my favorites, but they disappeared in the thin air.

the good news is, Khol’s, Centry 21, TJ max are moving in. Khol’s & Centry 21 opened their doors on March 3, TJ MAX will grand open on March 14th. lots promotions going on right now, I got gift cards, coupons… I spent this afternoon browsing through their merchandises… not bad. I bought a few items for the upcoming “Barbie Day”.

I cant wait for TJ MAXX’s grand opening, maybe I will find a couple collector dolls. Khol only has Fashionistas, beach fun & “I can Be” dolls, none of them falls into my category.

I wish our communities didnt reject walmart, but they strongly did. I dont see any differences between Walmart & TJMaxx, Century 21, all discount stores, right? as you can see, Small stores go out of business with or without walmart.
how can these people who ran out of business blame walmart? its digital era, can you really block walmart from moving into your neigborhood, there are online stores.
