My children came up with this all by themselves, mostly the older one.  She is VERY creative.  You will see I have credited her in all of my instructables.  :)

Step 1: Cut up the Sock

Picture of Cut up the Sock
Cut sock into 3 pieces.  Cut off toe and cut just above heel. 

Step 3: Top band goes on as Barbie's Shirt

Put Barbie's hands up and put on shirt, pulling down the top section of the sock.  Make sure the finished edge goes down to her waist.  Roll up the bottom edge to make a nice accent band and make the top edge line up with her bust line.   Turn  her over and fold excess material over and secure with bobby pin.  You  could sew this if you wanted it to be finished but my girls only leave clothes on Barbie for .01238569948 seconds, on average, so there was little point.  :)

Thank you! My 5 year old granddaughter has been asking to sew Barbie clothes. I can sew simple sewing, but not make clothes. She'll enjoy this! And goodness knows I have odds and ends of toddler socks that never made it home to her house.

I know it was a while ago that you commented, but thanks for responding. I hope your granddaughter got a few minutes of fun from this idea. :) My girls are still doing this, 3 years later. :)

How did you make it's hair pink?

Sorry to say that the hair came that color, but I would suggest trying koolaid or RIT dye to color Barbie hair. However, I have a feeling it may not take the color very well. You never know! Try a Goodwill Barbie to see. :) Maybe I will try it out later and post an instructable, once I know how.
