Someone brought me a bag with a photograph of a pizza on it, and that became the inspiration for this outfit. The top was cut from a portion of that bag (mmm, a pizza blouse). Between working with plastic and having to fit Barbie's crazy shape, this was a lot harder than I expected. I was able to sew on the skirt plastic without a problem, but I needed cellophane tape "interfacing" on the reverse side of the blouse in order to sew it on the machine.
The skirt was cut from a small bag with a grey triangle printed on it. The shape of the triangle gave me the idea for the graduated pleats in front. A newspaper delivery bag provided the material for the sash.
I made a second look using freezer bags. Gerry calls this one the Mad Men dress.
If you look closely, you can see the snowflakes printed on the bags!
Our next challenge is to dress a doll as a book character. I have one in mind, but I'm open to suggestions! Which character would you choose?
