I've never been a fan of barbie dolls, but Danica has somehow accumulated quite a collection of them, and some came with pretty skimpy outfits. I didn't want to go out and buy barbie clothes...and I sure didn't want to sew any, so I came up with a simple solution. Sock dresses. I had a few pairs of colorful socks to experiment with.
Here's what we did:
- Cut a hole in the center of the toe with a v-shape in the front
- Cut two small holes for the arms
- Cut the sock off above the heel
- Cut the heel part out completely

We tried making a dress from a pair of plush socks, and it turned out pretty, but it frays too easily.
