Our 2011 BARBIE Fashion Challenge

The Challenge:
Designers ages 10-15 had less than one hour to create a look for BARBIE using both machine sewing and hand sewing techniques with no patterns. The Barbie dolls were on display at the Unionville community fair for the day while fair goers placed a button in a jar to vote for their favorite look. Everyone from little girls who dream of becoming fashion designers someday to Dads and Grandpas were eager to grab a button and vote. Many of the audience spent a good amount of time studying the detailed work of the outfits. Unfortunately, the rain began around 230pm, discouraging people to come into the tent. However, everyone was impressed, and it was a very close race.
The Results:

Roobi wins first place with many viewers (43 buttons in her jar). This vintage look won the hearts of most older ladies and gentlemen with comments like, "I'm voting for the vintage classic look!"

Kelli's second place look was made from classic Barbie colors and styled with one bare shoulder--a style which can be seen everywhere in stores today, won the hearts of most teens and pre-teens with 21 buttons.

Chelsea's cute sundress, waist-cinching belt, and matching hat wins her a very close third place trophy with 20 buttons.

Sarah takes fourth place with 19 buttons. (I told you it was a close race!) Sarah won the hearts of many little girls with the pink gown she made.

Megan's heavily stylized avant garde look comes close as well, with 15 buttons.
