This tailored dress pattern has lots of potential for cute outfits that will look so perfect on Best Fashion Friend Barbie. With Velcro fastening at the back, this pattern will make many sweet dresses to inspire the imagination of Barbie’s BFF! Quilting cotton is the perfect weight fabric for this dress, and it comes in loads of different beautiful colours. Jazz it up by using dance-weight satin, add pretty bows or ribbon straps, coloured buttons or sparkly beads, or choose brightly patterned fabric, to make a very individual item. The pattern includes details of the different lengths required to create mini-skirts through to evening gowns with this pattern, and has a piece included to make the side flounces for a Princess costume.
Please note that the items of clothing Barbie is wearing to model her Tailored Dress have patterns available separately in my Etsy shop. The necklace is a child's bracelet (also not for sale).
This pattern has the paper outline pieces, on multiple pages, and written instructions, to guide you through the process. I recommend that you trace the pattern on to some medium weight non-fusible interfacing for ease of use and storage. You will need to be able to download the PDF file and print out some pages in order to be able to use these patterns. As these are a digital item, no refunds will be possible, but I am happy to support you if you have problems. It is expected that the purchaser has a reasonable sewing ability for these projects. The pattern is to be printed out at 100% on A4 paper for accurate sizing, and a 2cm square is provided for scale.
In my patterns, simple fastenings are recommended to help little girls to dress their dolls more easily. This range includes leggings, skirts, a T-shirt, a button front shirt, summer dresses, versatile pants, and a detailed denim jacket. If there is another item of clothing that your 28in Best Fashion Friend Barbie needs, please contact me.
