In today’s video, you’ll see that I’ve designed a pattern with three different styles of jeans or pants to fit a Barbie-sized doll. I was excited to find that these jeans look really nice on my vintage Francie doll, too, as you’ll see in the video.
The tutorial video at the top of today’s blog post only shows how to make the straight-leg jeans, like you see here:
If you’re interested in making the ankle pants, that tutorial can be found here.
And I do have a tutorial for making bell-bottom jeans for Tall Barbie. The directions would be the same for a regular-sized Barbie, but you’ll want to use today’s pattern instead of the Tall Barbie pattern. Here’s the link to the bell-bottom jeans tutorial.
With that said, if I remember right, the bell-bottom jeans were a little long on my MTM Barbie, just like you’ll see in that tutorial. So please bear that in mind if you’re making the bell-bottoms for Barbie.
Tomorrow I’ll make a post for the full outfit that’s shown in today’s video, so you can sew the T-shirt as well as the jeans or pants to fit your 11.5 inch (29 cm) dolls. But if you want to start on the T-shirt early, you can find that link on the Barbie gallery of patterns. Look for the plain white T-shirt with a pair of green-white-and-blue shorts and a pale blue clutch purse.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Liv dolls
- Disney Princess 11.5 inch dolls
