She has short hair (very short with three wigs)lots of attitude, I have been using the excuse her trunks have not arrived from Paris---for her poor fitting wardrobe. Realizing very little fit, even after a trip to Vickie's store...and Colette was so crabbing about it.
I promised her a new wardrobe.
I knew she was very tall (12"). But, I wanted to see how her body was different. I have lots of vintage patterns for Barbie, but, I knew there was a difference in sizes, so I decided to do a comparison to figure out where to start.
I also did this measurement chart from the different body types that I had patterns for.
Colette is actually very similar to original Barbie only much taller and less busty.
Of course then she started crabbing about the fabric selection!
Um, on the blog, I discuss the whole situation with Colette and she critiques the fabrics. Anyone interested in patterns/sewing for your dolls might want to follow along on my ad-free blog!
