Barbie loves Chanel

When we sold our black Chanel suits, I didn't keep any of them for myself - so now I've made one for myself 😊

Chanel Barbie

And a t-shirt that perfectly suits her, as it's thin and sleeveless. The neckline is gathered in the middle and is velcro-fastened from behind. They are available for sale in my Etsy shop.

I've also made black, bardot neckline t-shirts with Chanel's metalized golden logo (available here).

Barbie & Chanel

Plus golden sequin miniskirts, velcro-fastened from behind (available here).

These logo t-shirts were also made by me in black and white (available here):

I'm currently working on suits including a blazer and a skirt with lining. I'll be showing you pictures soon enough!

Chanel style suit for Barbie

I´m sorry I've been missing for so long, but there have been changes: I have no partner anymore in B&I. So now I must do everything by myself: buying the fabrics, sewing the clothes, taking the pictures, blogging and managing the Etsy shop. And, since I run my own business, I have very little time for my Barbie hobby.

I have taken advantage now of the fact that it is summer in Spain, and I have less work, to make a Chanel style suit 😊 It includes a jacket, skirt and t-shirt. It does not include the necklace (from "Preferably Pink" Barbie), the purse (I purchased it in Aliexpress) nor the shoes.

Both the t-shirt and the skirt are velcro-fastened in the back. So they perfectly suit different Barbie bodies (except curvy and petite) and also Poppy Parker body.

Look at this beautiful doll: she has been repainted by Sara of "My dolls, my world". I love their repaints so much

I have made three identical suits, I'm keeping one for myself but the other two are available in my Etsy shop.

I love the young and chic style of this suit. I hope you will love it too 😊

Barbie Dancing with the Stars Paso Doble - W3319

One of the beauties that I brought from my trip to USA is this "Dancing with the Stars Paso Doble Barbie Doll" (W3319). Unfortunately it's a little cross-eyed, but I will fix it when I feel more secure with the repaints.

She is wearing our white body and our pink faux-leather skirt. I love her articulated body and her hair

My Barbie collection - Color No.2

When I started collecting Barbies, almost three years ago, I bought them without judgment. But over time I have become more selective: now I prefer to have few and special than a lot and mediocre.

Right now I have 39 not-Silkstone Barbies, 10 Silkstone Barbies and 2 Poppy Parkers. For me it's very important that my not-Silkstone Barbies have articulated bodies (but not MTM bodies, I don't like them...), so I have classified them by colors to take these photos. This way I will tell you which bodies do well to each group of color.

The whitest barbie I have is "Fan Binding" (BCP97) and I still have not got an articulated body for her 😭 So I start with the next skin tone, which I'll call No. 2. It's a very common color, so there are two pictures. You can use any of the bodies I will quote with any of these dolls:


From left to right:

1.- Barbie Fashionistas - Party Glam Doll 4 (CJY43): I repainted her eyes in blue. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The T-shirt and bib are from Clear-Lan.

2.- The Barbie Look - City Chic Style (DYX63): She wears her own body, but I don't like at all her knees. The dress and the shirt are from Clear-Lan. The socks are from Alliexpress.

3.- Natalia Vodianova Barbie Doll (CHX13): She wears "Andy Warhol Barbie Doll" (DKN04) body. I love this body  The turtleneck sweater and the shirt are from our Etsy shop.

4.- Model No. 05 - Collection 002 (T7739): She wears "The Barbie Look Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect" (DGY08) body. The dress is from Mattel.

5.- Andy Warhol Barbie Doll" (DKN04). I deleted the blue eyeshadow and repainted her lips. She wears her own body. The t-shirt is from Clear-Lan and the shirt from Mattel.


From left to right:

1.- The Barbie Look Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect: I took off her bangs and I repainted her eyes, her lips, and painted some freckles. She wears her own body. The dress is from our shop (out of stock now).

2.- France Barbie Doll (X8420): She wears "The Barbie Look™ Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect" (DGY08) body. The dress is from SquishTish.

3.- "Tokidoki Barbie Doll" (CMV57) with Sara repaint and Gema reroot. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The t-shirt and the skirt are from our Etsy shop.

4.- Princess of Ancient Greece Barbie Doll (B3461) with reroot. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The color of the head is a little bit yellowish, so it's not identical to the color of the body, but it's very similar. Moreover I don't think there is an articulated body with that same yelowish color. The t-shirt, the skirt and the jacket are from Clear-Lan.

5.- Princess of China Barbie Doll (3368) with Gema reroot. She wears "The Barbie Look – Party Perfect" (DGY13) body. The t-shirt is from Clear-Lan and the shirt from Mattel. She wears "The Barbie Look Barbie Doll - Tea Party Perfect" (DGY08) body. The dress is from YokoDolls. The shoes are from Alliexpress.
