Barbie works at Huege Enterprises. She currently
works in the file room but is taking Saturday and
and evening classes at The Barton Women's
Academy of Business in hopes of getting a
position in the bookkeeping department.
As any career minded gal she wants to dress
in a manner that says "I am a professional",
but on a file clerk's budget that can be tricky.
Luckily, Barbie has some sewing skills and
knows the value of a mix and match wardrobe
or .....a capsule wardrobe.
Babs is starting with a burgundy pencil
skirt and jacket. I'm think the skirt is a
little too long, but the era is mid-late 50's.
A floral sleeveless blouse is added under
the jacket. And of course, while we're at
it let's make little sis, Skipper, a matching
blouse and skirt.
Babs already had a pink short sleeved
button front blouse (ok, we are still
missing the buttons so it is a pinned
front blouse). Worn with the skirt and
jacket it makes a nice professional suit.
Babs also had this lovely sweater, made
by friend, Carol. It looks a little more
casual than the jacket but still nice for
work in the file room.
A girl's gotta have something to relax
in so we added a pair of pants......and a
pair for the kid. I think the floral top
looks better with the pants.
Add the sweater and this is a great
casual outfit for a day in the park
Babs also has a navy pencil skirt which
goes well with the pink blouse. On the
cutting table is another short sleeved
button front blouse in a blue floral
pattern to go with that skirt also. A navy
jacket might be nice too......if I can find
my navy fabric. And a white blouse
is definitely needed.....maybe 2, short
and long sleeved.
***After my last post I decided to take a
break from the dioramas. I may go
back to them but for now I am just
going to use my free time doing what
I like to do most .....play with my dolls
and make them clothes. I appreciate
the advice everyone gave, you guys
