thrift find: Modern Art Barbie dress!
« on: August 19, 2017, 05:24:58 PM »
I recently found the modern art barbie dress from the 60's in an antique store, and the owner wanted to give it to me for free(!!!)

When i first got it it had the original organza layer, but it was ripped all over and just dissolving, so i removed it. the waist band is still the original, but is very worn and i'm thinking about replacing it. the shoulder strap is replaced with new organza, its not perfect so i might redo it.
what would you do to make this dress look its best and still keeps its value? and do you have any tips on restoring doll clothes? i would love to hear!
