They changed Barbie!

I made this dress for my niece based on a pattern that I had when I was a teenager.  I could not locate Sofia’s old dolls in the attic (found all of the accessories), so broke down and bought a new one.  Much to my surprise, when I put the dress on that would have fit the old Barbie like something Marilyn Monroe would have worn, it is now baggy.  I think that I prefer the old doll proportions.  This one looks just as disproportionate, just in different ways, she seems very anorexic to me.  I guess that I will have to modify the pattern next time.

At least it will be easy to put on and take off…
