Barbie Clothes – Stash Buster

My daughter is the very proud owner of a Barbie house, she was so very patient riding the bus home and then waiting for mummy to construct it, even helping with some of it she is very good at telling me where each piece went☺️

Once built ohhh the excitement of putting the new furniture inside and then ooohhhhh mummy we neeeeeeddd the Barbies ……..

Out they came in a whirlwind of Barbie stuff looking like they were having the worst bad hair day EVER, oh no what a messy mess mum, time for a brush we think, and whilst your brushing the hair I will have a go at making some clothes for them, even more smiles.

Here is how I made a skirt and top

image Hem the bottom edge

image Make a casing for the elastic along the top edge.

imageJoin the two short edges right sides together leaving the casing open for the elastic to go through.

imageThread the elastic through and their you go a Barbie skirt.

imageHem the two long edges.

imageMark where you want the ribbon straps to go, I did this by holding around the doll and marking with a erasable pen.

imagePin into place and sew across going back over it twice for strength.

imageRepeat for the back of the straps.

imageMeasure once again for where the Velcro should go, sew into place.
