ZiZi's Redress

ZiZi's new dress accentuates her curves.

First seen here, ZiZi (Zig and Zag Fashionista) was redressed in a stretch knit fashion that was actually made to fit ModelMuse and regular bodied Barbies. ZiZi borrowed the dress and coordinated jacket from Hakeem's mother.  I purchased this ensemble a few years ago from eBay seller barbie-couture, who typically uses knit fabrics, which are hot glued instead of sewn.

ZiZi was happy to discard her Mattel-issued dress and took several photos to model the new one:

Her gold lamé shoulder bag is from Barbie Basics Look No. 002 Collection 001 accessory pack.

"Baby got back."
ZiZi models the dress without the jacket.

With or without the jacket, I love this dress on her!

ZiZi and Hakeem's mom pose in this final photo to share that Hakeem's mom was not left undressed.  She wears a one-shouldered jumper that I won by participating in one of Shasha's blog contests several years ago.

ZiZi hopes to soon go shoe shopping for a pair of more flattering shoes to better complement her new dress.  Until then, she wears her original black shoes.

  3. Very, very nice! This outfit shows off her bootylicious curves! The classic lines of the dress and her hair and jewelry provide a nice juxtaposition. Bravo!

    1. She does look like a completely different doll. The original dress style is nice, but the colors and pattern were not working well for ZiZi's body type.

      Thank you, Maricha, and thanks for complimenting Hakeem's mom, too. She's not missing a step, fashion wise, in her animal print jumper.
