Once Sadie got her first Barbies® for her second birthday this past month…I knew that I was in for it. It being Barbie® clothes! I’d been a little intimidated by them-they’re so tiny. Of course, my sister and I had always made the most fashionable clothes (not) when we were younger with scraps tied around our dolls…but for Sadie’s dolls I had something a little more fun in mind.
Plus, I’m a sewer (sewist? sewee?) so I knew a wardrobe had to be made! Some of these are made from my own design-some I used Simplicity 5785 for. Like, the grey and orange dress, the pants, and the blue pleated skirt. The rest I made up. (yes, you can expect some tutorials! In fact-all week long-it’s Barbie® clothes week!)
I love the blue skirt-one of my favs-and it came together really quickly!
had to use those skirt scraps somehow…
I made this skirt out of some wee scraps, and embellished her shirt with a little scrap flower. I love using my tiny adorable scraps up!
Tune in tomorrow for the first tutorial!
