These cute little skirts will be gorgeous on Best Fashion Friend Barbie. Fastened at the back with Velcro for easy use by little girls, these skirts can be made in whatever colourful medium weight fabric you choose. A tailored skirt, fitted with darts at the font and back, can be both a denim mini and a longer retro pencil skirt. The circle skirt is stunning with its fullness. And the bubble (balloon) skirt is making a comeback right here! They can be jazzed up with applique, embroidery or brightly coloured topstitiching to make a very individual item. The addition of fine net as an underskirt, or an organza overskirt, or even pre-gathered lace around the hem, will turn every BFF Barbie into a Princess.
Please note that the items of clothing Barbie is wearing to model her skirts have patterns available separately in my Etsy shop.
This pattern has the paper outline pieces, on multiple pages (and labelled for joining) which will need to be attached to each other, and written instructions with some pictures, to guide you through the process. I recommend that you trace the pattern pieces 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. Also included are the measurements for the different lengths for 28in BFF Barbie skirts. 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, fastenings recommended are Velcro or buttons 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.
