This is a tutorial on how to make a barbie doll dress, hope you like it!!
Step 1: Tools
You will need a good scissors, needle and thread, (or sewing machine,) small snaps or buttons, lots of ribbon, lace and fabric scraps, and a barbie or other doll to model on!
Step 2: Skirt
I made a three piece outfit, so I'll start with the first piece.
I cut out a rectangle of white gathered it on the top and added a small snap, then I sewed the lace on the bottom of the skirt, and turning it inside out, I sewed the sides together leaving a little gap between where the seam ends and where the snap is.
Step 3: Over Skirt
Now for the second piece.
This time I cut out a trapezoid, (I cut it the length so that you could see the lace of the skirt from underneath.) and hemmed it all the way around and sewed on a ribbon.
Step 4: Bodice
Third piece, the bodice.
I cut this piece out slightly shaped, and shaped it more as I went along, so it would fit snugly.
I hemmed the top and sides, and added a snap near the top. ( the bottom should tuck in the skirt.)
Then I gathered one side of about inch wide strips, for the sleeves, and sewed them on.
I also added a small flower to the bodice.
Step 5: Finished!!
This is just how I made one doll out fit, so be creative, and have fun!!
