Wrap Skirt for Barbie -Free Pattern -No Hems, No Sew Option

This Wrap Skirt for Barbie has a no-sew option, truly making it simple for girls to make for themselves. This looks a little more finished than my Barbie tunic top and Ken tank top because we glue (or sew) trim around the bottom edge. But it's still the same theory, we don't really need hems because we're using pinking shears. This is a super simple 15-30 minute project that's a great way to add to Barbie's wardrobe while doing a little stash busting at the same time.

And a totally different look...
A word about glue: I absolutely love Liquid Stitch, 
but recently I've been using Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue for these crafts. 
It seems to adhere quicker and dry faster. 
Almost finished skirt, only needs snaps or velcro...

The pattern:

What I did:
  1. Cut one with pinking shears.
  2. Fold top (waist) over 1/4" and glue or sew.
  3. Glue or sew sewing trim from rounded side of waist around bottom to the other side. Leave flat side unfinished (see picture above). Note: The rick-rack did ~not~ want to adhere with glue, I sewed that on. The delicate lace glued just fine.
  4. Sew snaps or hot glue/sew velcro dots for closure. My dots on the pattern are just estimates, it's always best to have your girl's favorite doll close by for fittings. My best tip: You'll either want to add the closure so the waistband stays tight to hold up the straight edged side, or add a second snap or tad of velcro to that side too. 
  5. To dress doll, hold straight side of skirt against side of doll's hip. Wrap skirt all the way around doll, overlapping fabric in front, and snap closed.
  6. Smile at a half hour well spent😉
Oh how I wish this rick-rack was red...

  1. I love this skirt! I wonder if I can use it for Curvy dolls. One of the things I like best about your patterns done on loose leaf paper is that if I don't want to use my printer, I can use the lines as a guide to make a pattern. Thanks!

  2. Love it and so easy peasy too. I think my granddaughter's Barbies need some of these. Thanks for the glue tip too!
