10 Free Barbie Sewing Patterns

The Barbie doll by Mattel, Inc. was launched in March 1959 and has become the most iconic of all dolls. Along with Ken, Skipper, and many other additions, these dolls continue to be popular toys for children.

You can buy Barbie her dreamhouse, convertible, plus clothes and accessories. But, if you sew, why not DIY? This collection has 10 Free Barbie Sewing Patterns we think you'll love.

The majority is free Barbie clothes sewing patterns but that's not all. You'll find a few accessories and sleeping bags as well. Don't worry about Barbara Millicent Roberts going homemade. These doll clothes are just as pretty as anything you can buy.

Did you know that the first Barbie fashion dolls were released as both blonde and brunette? Since then, Barbie has had many physical and cultural changes and options. Still, that classic platinum blonde hair and impossibly tiny body are recognizable to nearly everyone.

There are even off-brand versions. You'll be able to use these as 11.5 inch doll clothes patterns, too. Even though this is a small collection, it's super simple to use any of these patterns as a guide for more DIY doll clothing.

This doll is still popular amongst children and even many adults. If you have a version of Barbie in your life or a similar doll, then you certainly need to see what you can make for them.
