Barbie Outfit - Movie Night Dress

According to my girls, Barbie was going to see a movie with Ken and needed something new to wear. So mamma makes a Movie Night dress, with a matching bag! This is my first non rubber band dress so Im hoping it works out ok. As always, its not tested and wrote as I stitched, don't be too worried if your a stitch or two out. Remember, linkbacks and credit where credit is due thanks! Would love to see some more projects on Rav too!
