People who were born in the 1990’s and grew up in the early 2000’s remember the Bratz dolls from their childhood. According to Wikipedia, by the year 2005, “global sales [of Bratz dolls] were two billion dollars and, by 2006, Bratz had about 40 percent of the fashion-doll market” (Wikipedia, 30 May 2020). They were the first big competitor to Mattel’s Barbie.

But the brand experienced a number of controversies that besmirched the dolls with bad press, and sales sharply declined.

Fast forward to September of 2014, and Sonia Singh of Tasmania got “internet famous” by recycling / re-purposing old Bratz dolls with new face paint and handmade doll clothes. If you haven’t visited her website to learn more about her wonderful Tree Change dolls, I recommend you take a moment to do so now (see link). Her creative business of re-purposing old dolls has done exceedingly well, and she has inspired many others to follow her lead.

So today I’m posting this cute little skirt and shirt pattern for Bratz dolls, in the hope that Sonia Singh and those who followed her lead will be able to use these patterns to create new and wonderful dolls from old ones. Let’s all do our part to save the planet from the onslaught of plastics by making an effort to use what we already have creatively!

Today’s free pattern will fit the following dolls:
