Free Barbie Clothes Patterns -Dress, Crop Top, Panties

RePlay: I created this post back in 2016 on Happier Than A Pig In Mud, and wanted to bring it over to to DIY Barbie Blog. It's spring here in Philly folks, the blogs have been a little quiet as most of my spare time has been consumed with thinking about the gardens:@) I hope you're enjoying some nice weather too!

Is Barbie more excited about baseball or the promise of nice weather? Hmmm... A grilled hot dog sounds pretty good right about now too... How about whipping up some cute short shirts for your doll to get ready for summer, this free pattern sheet is a great place to start, and you can easily customize the look any way you'd like.
How to make a beaded necklace HERE.

I didn't know there was a second sheet of free Barbie patterns from EmbyQuinn but I'm sure glad I found it, and I finally tracked down her instructions too:@) Different logo fabrics can be found at stores like JoAnn Fabric and mine was from Walmart years ago. This Team Logo Tank Top for Barbie is a variation of the cropped top on the pattern sheet. I didn't add the sleeves, increased the armhole hem and I added 1/2" to the length.

 If you're a seasoned sewer this would whip up in no time. 
I am not a seasoned sewer and spent less than an hour working on it. 
My back closure is Velcro.
The only thing I'd do differently is sew the bottom hem after the sides are sewn together 
(yep, I didn't follow directions... again).
Sewing order for tank top hems: 
Neck, arm holes, sides, back and then bottom.

Here's the pattern sheet, save it and 
use the scroll button on your mouse until the gray box is 1". 
Emby's directions for sewing can be found HERE.
I can't wait to play with the dress next๐Ÿ˜Š
Another pattern sheet with pants, skirt and shirt can be found HERE.

My best advice is go easy on yourself, 
these dinky clothes can be challenging and don't need to be perfect... 
Have you seen the quality of the doll clothes they're selling that are made in China? 
And they are working on them all day! 
Have fun, this is a labor of love๐Ÿ˜‰

Does your Barbie need a backpack for the game?

Go team and have a happy day๐Ÿ˜Ž
