One of our projects was Barbie clothes. This is something I haven't made that much of for a while. It was fun to work on but eventually I got a little tired of the putsyness of it as doing things like sewing on itty bitty snaps isn't my favorite activity.
Here are the results of some of our work:
The pants I made using the basic pants pattern with an elastic waist. I simply sew the front seam together. Then I hem the legs and put elastic at the waist (either turning it over to make a casing or putting the elastic on top of the fabric). Next step is to sew the back seam together. Then I sew the inseam together and turn them right side out and they are all done.
Megan made the one girls headscarf and I made the scarf using the same method for scarves that I make for me- just in miniature.
Here are the pattern pieces.
Simply right click on the picture and then click on print picture and it should print out the correct size.(That isn't working for me- I will try to find a way to make it work when I have more time.- meanwhile if you would like them just e-mail me and I will send it to you in an e-mail.) Seam allowances are 1/4 inch. I know my instructions have been very minimal. I don't have a lot of extra time at the moment to go into detail but if you want to make this and have any questions just feel free to ask and I will come back and add more information in as I have time.
I am just curious- are barbies still something that is played with much in other homes? My Megan enjoys playing them with friends but I wasn't sure if a lot of little girls still do or not.
