Barbie Strapless Gown
Barbie strapless gown is satin with a sparkly overskirt
Barbie loves wearing this strapless gown because no matter what color you order, you are going to get a gown with a sparkly overskirt.
A small bow or rosette accents the waist. Trims and trim color can vary due to availability. I always try and match the bow or rosette at the waist to the tulle or whatever type of overskirt fabric I have or it will match the sparkles.
The bodice for this strapless gown is very fitted and a little tight so this Barbie strapless gown would work best on the larger bodied or "classic" Barbies as I like to call them. I always test fit gowns, especially strapless ones. This gown can easily be made to fit your smaller-busted Barbie.
This would look very striking paired with a soft, velvety Barbie cape, especially if you get a white gown and a white cape--Barbie can be a winter princess. Or you may prefer to put together a wedding using this strapless Barbie gown as a bridesmaid gown. The traditional lace train wedding gown for Barbie would make this a nice gift set. This gown can be ordered with the Wedding Option meaning it would be made from white satin and you will get a small flower bouquet and a veil. This is only $2 extra.
I am always on the lookout for glittery tulle that would work well with Barbie doll clothes, so that I can have even more satin and tulle combinations for you to choose from.
The newest color combo I have is a dark (Barbie) pink which is now pictured above. For anyone who is a repeat customer, you may remember the old faithful navy tulle gown. That navy tulle is gone now but I have left navy as a choice because I was able to find a navy sparkly overskirt. It just happens to not be tulle but I think you'll be pleased with it. I'm anxious to make the first gown using the new navy overskirt fabric, why not be the first to order one? Then I'll be able to get a picture of it. There are also another couple of new color options for you, green and cranberry.
Here's how to order:
- For the wedding option, make sure you select white for the gown color and the "wedding option" in the other pull-down
- For a regular strapless gown, select your color and leave it at "no wedding option" in the second pull-down
- If a white gown is selected but the wedding option is not selected, you will receive only the gown.
