I probably should be embarrassed about finding a project that's so old and never been completed, but dang, it's a great find! It's like going thrifting without spending any money.

So, in my quest to clean out boxes and 'stuff' from my home for the 30 days of nothing (which, by the way, I failed miserably at on account of learning how to knit), I found a box packed away in the basement that was full of Barbie patterns and material. Some of the patterns were already cut out so I hauled the box into the clean (not so much) office and set up the sewing machine again. Based on the purple corduroy sort of buried in the photo I'm guessing these are from at least 20 years ago, maybe longer. I used the corduroy to make a 'lovely' pair of pants for my step-daughter when she was 5 - she's 31 now. Here's a small sampling of what I found.
