1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Homemade Barbie clothes on: January 18, 2008 11:24:37 PM
Does anyone else make Barbie clothing? I know I'm about to sound like the queen dork here, but I really enjoyed collecting Barbies as a kid. I've recently became re-interested and bought a few new dolls. I have to admitt I was intrigued when I saw Barbie's new line of "Top Model" dolls. I found out this new line of dolls is made with Mattel's, recently introduced,  <i>new Barbie body</i> Called "Modelmuse" It's basically a long lean model type Barbie, who instead of being totally bendable, is pretty much stuck in a fashion model pose. But with this new Barbie body there are almost no clothes to fit them. After searching the net for info on these Barbies (and being introduced to a whole new world of barbie collecting, OOAK and much more!!) And searching for any type of barbie pattern available for free (there are practically NONE! I took a stab at making some clothing myself. Here they are:
 

I made this GO-GO style dress after being inspired by the thigh-high lime-green stocking this doll came with



My camera battery died before I could get individual shots but you can see all of the pieces here. I didn't make the jeans the doll with the sunglasses is wearing, nor any of the handbags (besides the green GO-GO one) <BR><BR><BR>All the Patterns were made from cutting up old Barbie clothing to get a basic pattern and adjusting the pieces as I sewed them to fit these dolls.
