I was asked by a friend to make her daughter some princess barbie clothes for Christmas and her birthday. They are good for using up scraps and i think they came out OK.

this one was completely without pattern and i had to sew extra layers into the skirt because initially it was very very see through. Little girl declared it to be snow queen dress  Smiley


Again done without a pattern or any real clue as to what i was doing.



The pink is separate top and skirt. The green bodice came from a free pattern on internet but the rest is all out of my head. Again the skirt was a little too see through in spite of my layering the petals for that very reason. I put a mini skirt lining underneath to combat that.

very cute. i love the fullness of the 'snow queen' dress. so often the barbie clothes i bought for my girls were made of fabrics that frayed very quickly. these look like they will hold up better.

Those are very pretty. Barbie clothes are so small...something I have yet to have the courage to even attempt. Well done.

Great job! Doll clothes can be so difficult! Also, that barbie's hair is wild!

I think you did a great job for having no patterns and for making princess dresses especially!  I have yet to work on some princess dresses although I have done several tops and skirts for Barbie and tops and pants for Ken.  I have used both a sewing machine and also hand sewn Barbie's and Ken's clothes and I personally find hand sewing a bit easier since the seam allowances are so tiny.  You have inspired me to try the princess dresses, I know my daughter will love them!  Have you tried any patterns from missbcouture.com?  She has many free patterns with tutorials on making 1:6 scale doll clothes (aka- Barbie and Ken-sized clothes) using her own simple made patterns.
