In two weeks time, my niece, the one who made me actually consider (end then actually do it) buying a Barbie doll and start re-learning how to sew doll clothes, is going to be two years old.
Happy Birthday to her!
Apparently she is too small to play with fashion dolls and her father tells me she might prefer cars and balls when she grows up – but we’ll see. I still have one year left to get pro at sewing doll clothes. I’ve posted some of my adventures, tips and patterns before, but I plan on sewing better clothes and posting more free patterns.
Until then, here’s a free barbie or fashion doll dress pattern for you to download and sew.
Here’s the dress again laid flat.
I am still learning to sew for dolls (it seemed way easier back when I was 10:). It’s really fun though.
An aviator doll with goggles? Aaaw
I love Aimee Ray‘s embroidery on Blythe clothes. (And her ‘noms
Lovely work. Makes me want to paint it:)
Another Aimee Ray beautiful softie.
And this wolf: look at that smile. Isn’t it irresistible?
I did it. I am quite surprised that I got it right the first time. I am very enthusiastic about it.
The pattern is from April 2009 Burda. I made the sleeves a little shorter ’cause I am petite and decided to close the sides, so I can wear it as a dress too. Works nice with jeans and I just love the collar.
Free to use and experiment on, not okay if you sell clothes made of these originally crafted patterns.
There’s still more work to be done, but here they are:
In this post: weekend style clothes. Tshirt and ruffled jean skirt.
And here are the two patterns:
The ruffled skirt
and the very casual tshirt pattern:
This is a very easy way to make Barbie bathing suit bottoms or just fashionable panties: You just cut the pattern from strechy fabric. (Pattern includes sewing allowances). Then you just connect A with A and B with B. Turn inside out and there you have them. 1 minute panties:) Feel free to be imaginative.
My first doll dress pattern and my first tutorial about it. On flickr!!!
I have found this wonderful user: Vintage Barbie on Flickr and I wanted to share.
The set is lovely, check out these two examples :
