It’s JUNE, the month of weddings! So today I’m posting a free Barbie-sized wedding dress pattern and tutorial. Please note, the tutorial video recommends an older pattern, but the pattern I’ve posted on this page is much newer and easier to download since it’s a PDF not a JPG image. Use the newer pattern, following the same basic instructions that are given in the older tutorial video.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Liv dolls
- Disney Princess 11 inch fashion dolls (but not the 10 inch dolls)
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the dress shown at the top of this page:
- Free printable PDF sewing pattern for a wedding dress or ball gown to fit 11 inch fashion dolls
- Instructional video showing how to make a wedding dress or ball gown for 11 inch fashion dolls
Today’s pattern will include the long skirt patterns plus different styles of bodices — two of the pattern pieces shown below are used for a one-shoulder look — but on the PDF pattern, make sure you’re using the middle bodice pattern, cutting it from felt, to work with today’s tutorial video (in the bullets above).
You can also make a halter-style ball gown using these patterns. The halter gown uses the middle bodice pattern, cutting it out of cotton fabric on the fold.
