Free Barbie clothes pattern
Making your own free Barbie clothes pattern is a great way to create your own designer clothes for all of your Barbie dolls. Here are some examples of free Barbie doll clothes pattern templates:
How to design your own free Barbie Clothes Pattern:
First, download your free Barbie Clothes pattern template.Then open a blank page in your graphics software program and import the free templates to your page.
Resize the top so that it is 6in in width by 8in high and rotate 90 degrees if necessary. Resize the skirt pattern so that it measures 6” wide by 8” high and rotate 90 degrees as well.
Place a rectangle with an outline and no fill on the page and resize it so that it covers both the jacket and the skirt (if you are using the same clothes pattern for both). Fill the rectangle with the pattern color of your choice.
Layer this rectangle beneath the Barbie clothes templates so that the outlines for the doll template show on top of the printable pattern or color.
Print a free test page on plain paper. If you are satisfied with the output, you can now transfer your clothes pattern to an ink jet fabric sheet.
Allow the transfer fabric sheet to dry for about 5 minutes and then peel off the backing sheet. Cut out the jacket and skirt pattern from the fabric sheet. Make the split at the front of the jacket up to the neck and then cut out the hole.
Apply a thin bead of fabric adhesive around one of the “A” curves on the printed side of the fabric. Fold it in half and slowly line it up with the “B” curve opposite it. Press it gently to make sure the adhesive sticks. Repeat with the other “A” and “B” curve. Once the adhesive dries a bit, you can reverse the jacket right side out.
Place a small strip of self-stick Velcro on the inside corners on the back of the skirt. This will serve as the closing device for the skirt.
Now you have designed a free clothes pattern for your Barbie doll, and once you do this with a few pattern Barbie clothes you will be able to modify the printable templates to make the jacket or the skirt longer and possibly even create a pair of Barbie pants to match.
