Simple Elastic Waist Barbie Skirt -Three Seams

I've wanted to try making a simple skirt with an elastic waist for Barbie for a while, but I've been held up by two things... My sewing machine wasn't working correctly and elastic is scarce because everyone is making face masks these days! Well, Ma lent me a working sewing machine and I found some elastic in my crafting stash, so I got to work:@) What I love about this most is, it only requires a 6" x 3-4" piece of scrap fabric. The variation being, you can make the skirt as long, or short, as you'd like (or using whatever amount of fabric you have for the length).

Please stop by
for the full picture tutorial-thanks!

  2. Hi, Lynn. What I love about this post, is it is a great project to do with a mom/daughter, a little group of girls, or a granny share moment. I learned how to sew by sewing for my dolls, and it was cute things like this that we all started with!

    1. Thanks Sandi, that's exactly what I hope... That it creates a teaching moment, or special memory for folks:@)

  3. A great project to get kids sewing for their Barbie, I used to love making mine clothes when I was little (although I'm in the Uk and we had Sindy dolls back in the day!)
