I bought some naked Barbies off eBay to
play with sew clothes for...just in case I have a granddaughter instead of a grandson next. It takes TIME to make a complete wardrobe for that doll...and too many outfits is never a problem for Barbie!
In the meantime - I like sewing new clothes for Barbie...and they have to be tried on to make sure that they fit. One of them is supersized and one is "my sized" (18" and 36" - so 1.5x the usual size and 3x the usual size). The My Size Barbie is a proportionate size 10 Misses (USA) and lots of seamstresses sew mockups of final designs at that size (quarter scale) to see how they are going to turn out looking...
In the meantime - I really need to figure out what to do with the thousands of dollars in unsewn fabric, thread, needles, embroidery thread, stabilizer, ribbon, tapestry, sewing machine carry cases (two - one bought on clearance), scissors, rotary cutters, and so forth in my sewing room. Well - I'm pretty sure that I've spent more than $2000 just on the sewing machines, serger, and embroidery machine - plus the tables for them - I'm just not sure how much more by the time you add the cutting table, the book case, the dressmaker's dummy, the pattern drafting software, and sew forth & sew on.
