50th Anniversary Barbie

Last weekend I rescued this doll from the "donate" pile at a friends house! Of course she didn't look like this when I got her but I worked my magic and here she is. For the dress I used McCalls 6258 but omitted the shoulder straps and added my own little twist to it.

  The shoes were originally pink but I colored them with an alcohol marker!

A great view of the dress and her signature "side eye" glance.

I styled her braided up do!


  1. She is a real beauty. Just love those vintage dolls. I have quite a few as well!

  2. hi. how did you keep the hair up? straight pins into the head (oww!)? thank you. you are so clever! Vicki
