Barbie is a fashion doll manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, Inc. and launched in March 1959. American businesswoman Ruth Handler is credited with the creation of the doll using a German doll called Bild Lilli as her inspiration.
Barbie is the figurehead of a brand of Mattel dolls and accessories, including other family members and collectible dolls.
When I was a kid I did not like to play with dolls - may be because there were only "baby born" type dolls available and I hated those. When I got my first (and only one) Barbie doll I was in heaven. Fact that she was not original Mattel and used to lose all her extremities (including head) did not bother me much. What I loved about her - I could dress her up like real girl, real woman.
Now I've grown up, but still like to make clothes for Barbie dolls. Here are some of my latest creations for Barbie doll.

Oh, yes, wedding dress is THE dress every girl dreams of. Barbie also is a girl and has a dream about wedding outfit.
This is very romantic wedding outfit - white dress (bottom of which is embellished with many flowers), white headband and, of course, bride bouquet.
|Barbie outfit with headband and boa|
Inspired from old photos of 20s I made this outfit with touch of fashion from that period. Still this outfit is absolutely modern. If wearing only dress, Barbie will look like modern girl in romantic summer dress. But add headband and boa... and she is ready to attend thematic partie!
