20 Free Sewing Patterns for Barbie Clothes

Barbie is known for being a fashion icon and these free Barbie clothes patterns are a great way to create a unique wardrobe for your favorite doll. If you love the Barbie movie, then this is your chance to recreate a fashionista wardrobe!

These Barbie doll clothes patterns can be used to make amazing outfits for the dolls when giving a Barbie as a gift. Sew pretty clothing such as a strapless dress, a variety of skirt patterns and dress patterns, shirts with long sleeves or an evening gown.

One of the great things about sewing these tiny clothes is that you can use fabric scraps to make the outfits. These free sewing patterns can often be customized to fit various sizes of plastic dolls, whether you have new Barbies or vintage fashion dolls.

While beginner sewists might think that sewing Barbie’s wardrobe will be easy, sewing dolls clothes can actually be very challenging because of the tiny seam allowances, small scraps of fabric and fussy details. So don’t get frustrated if you find that sewing a doll’s wardrobe might be more challenging than sewing clothes for yourself.
