This charming, white Barbie doll dress is made of cotton and sports a flowered, embroidered design throughout. An attached white satin ribbon fastens into a beautiful bow at the back. A velcro fastener at the back makes it easy to dress and undress the doll. Faux pearl earrings, a stretch bead bracelet, and white shoes complete this graceful and traditional design.
Facts about the scene:
I wanted to create an English garden look, so I purchased a beautiful photo poster from Hobby Lobby. It is entitled 'Garden Delight' by Jessica Jenney. I used it as my background photo and then set into place other props that would accommodate my Barbie doll model. The white fence is just one unit of a landscape trim border that I purchased from Walmart for about $1.50, and I used tact glue to temporarily hold the flowers in place. The three boulder looking rocks are solar powered landscape decorations that were purchased from the dollar tree. The birdhouse stand was one that I picked up from either Hobby Lobby or Michaels. Both stores have an array to choose from. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I acquired the tiny dog and birds. I've had them for a while. To make it look as though Barbie was taking the dog for a walk, I attached a small length of jewelry chain around the dog's neck and secured the other end to Barbie's hand. Finally the flooring is nothing but green grass craft paper, which can be purchased at most craft stores.

This beautiful, flowered, spring-time Barbie doll dress is one that I had sewn a while ago. However, I never got around to posting it on our Etsy Store until Fall. Why so long? Well, I had my mind set on creating a beautiful garden scene for it, but that took a while for me to get around to doing. I ended up creating a garden trellis from a couple of paper boxes that I covered in reed wood, two trinket boxes for the seat, and two small wooden ladders that were too short for their original purchase use; but they worked quite well for my trellis archway extension. It is not exactly what I set out to create. However, it turned out better than I thought, and it complements the dress better than any other background prop I had tried in the past.
