Throwback Thursday: Barbie Cinderella Dress

I love Disney, and I love Barbie. But I don’t love the cheap, mass-produced Disney princess dresses for Barbie. So it’s always been my goal to make my own version of each dress. This was my first attempt:

As you can see, it didn’t go so well. The darts are uneven, the shoulders won’t stay up, the hemline is uneven, the list goes on and on. It was my first time working with organza, and I definitely underestimated how quickly it unraveled.

The pattern came from McCall’s 6232.

The only alteration I made was to leave off the lower sleeves. This is actually a pattern I’d like to try again someday, because it isn’t bad, I just wasn’t experienced enough to do it justice.
