Barbie has got new clothes as well....

I've been looking for sewing patterns for Barbie doll clothes for ages, but couldn't find any... Knitting and crocheting patterns, no problem... but I wanted to sew something. Then my blog friend Eileen found out, and was really kind and sent me lots of sewing patterns for Barbie... old patterns. They were so much fun to look at... She sent patterns for dresses, skirts, blouses, trousers, swim suit and lots more. It was really hard to choose which one to make first. But my choice was this long dress...
The fabric I used is a bit shiny... and I sewed some flower sequins along the top edge and at the waist...My next choice was this cute dress...
...and I found the perfect fabric for it in my stash... it's the same pattern on the fabric I used as the picture on the sewing pattern... fun! And Maja had the perfect shoes for this dress in her box of Barbie things... I also hand sewed a "pearl" necklace on the dress. I figured it was better to sew it onto the dress, that way it won't get lost (or eaten by certain small people in my family...)
Maja fell in love with the indian dress... so, of course, I had to make that one too. Complete with a paper feather that Maja coloured in...
This was sooooo much fun, and there are plenty of more patterns on the sheets I got, so I'll definately make more clothes for Barbie!!

Så søte! Jeg har døtre som nesten ikke har lekt med dokker:-(...men sjøl sydde jeg dokkeklær i lange baner da jeg var i 10-14årsalderen...Hadde søm som 4H-oppgave et år, og da sydde jeg skjørt og bluse til meg selv, og det samme til barbie som fikk være modell på høstfesten...

Tonje, this is so much fun! You have made two costumes that I have not made.. the long beautiful gown and the Indian dress. Wonderful job! Sewing the beads to the neckline is a very clever idea!

Skal si Barbie har fått fine klær å pynte seg i.
Godt at du samler på alle små biter av stoffer.Nå får de vel en hel garderobe snart.Tenk hvis jeg hadde vært så flink til å sy da du var liten.Tror kanskje at jeg sydde en kjole og heklet ei kåpe eller noe.Flink er du.

Den lange kjolen sydde jeg til min Barbie - men det må da være nesten 100 år siden. Det var faktisk sånn jeg lærte å sy, så Barbie var slettes ikke så dum hun.

barbien "din" ble skikkelig fin, hun.

Ha en super uke.

Så lekre klær du har sydd til Barbie!!!
Så flott at Eileen kunne hjelpe deg med å finne mønster, Eileen er bare så skjønn!!
Jeg tror det blir flere klær til Barbie her hos deg, lykke til...

Those are lovely Tonje! I began crafting by removing Sindy (English Barbie) doll's heads to get ponchos on. I liked making wooden furniture for her too from scraps from the local wood yard. It was just simple stuff but gave me hours of fun. :-) Your daughter is so lucky that you can make lovely things. I think I have Action Man patterns should Barbie want to go camping.

Matja said...

Wow,så flotte klær hun har fått.Sydde endel til Barbie for mange år siden.Nå fikk jeg jammen lyst til å begynne igjen:)

Så flott dukkeklær du har laget! Tror jeg må lære meg å sy hvis Lille Ville blir "dukkejente" i motsetning til mamma'n sin.

Guttemamma said...

Fantastisk!! Men det må da være pirkete med så små plagg...helt imponert jeg!!
