it was amazing

I love, love, love this book. In my single-lady years, I used to design and sew dresses for Barbie dolls, which I then sold at craft fairs. This book was my inspiration. I'd look at a dress pictured here, create a pattern from my clever little head, and sew a duplicate for Barbie. My customers were amazed at the authenticity of my doll costumes.

Funny how fate would have it. I've got two little girls, but neither of them is a big fan of Barbies. I have made them many, many doll clothes, but they don't seem to appreciate the work that goes into them. Alas, my talent is lost on children who have neither taste nor a desire for more.
