Sew a #Medieval Tunic for #BarbieDolls and other #FashionDolls (free pattern & tutorial)

Today I’m sharing a costume that you’ll see in the marketplace scene, in my upcoming stop-motion dolly version of Romeo and Juliet. Today I’ll offer free, printable patterns and tutorials for making her tunic, pants, hat, and sword. Scroll down for these links.

And don’t forget that I’m giving away a free summer wardrobe for Barbie! If you haven’t signed up for that, you should!

The medieval-style hat pattern can be found at this link, and the tutorial is on the pattern itself.

Download this pattern to make the tunic, and here’s the tunic tutorial, showing you how to make it (just add gathered skirting instead of hemming the base of the harlequin top).

This pattern for pants was used to make her trousers, and this general pants-making tutorial can help you create them.

And this is my tutorial for making doll swords. Although it’s not shown in the picture, I also have a pattern for making a sheath and belt, along with a tutorial for making a sheath and belt for swords.

I’m sorry I don’t have a pattern or tutorial for the boots and vest. This was one of the first costumes I made for my Romeo and Juliet production, so I had not yet thought of creating tutorials and patterns to share.

Just a couple more things to note: when you print my patterns, it’s always friendly and kind to like it on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.

Also, you must enlarge the pattern to fit a full-sized piece of computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects). If you have any questions about piecing this costume together, feel free to contact me, using my “Submit a Question” form. I’m always happy to help!
