Let’s face it. Barbie has been an astronaut, architect, paleontologist, and teacher. She has served in the military, served as an ambassador for world peace, and she has been a candidate for the presidency since 1992. Why wouldn’t she vote? She’s an educated, worldly-wise individual, isn’t she?
If you live in the United States, like I do, I hope you get out and vote today too! Your voice counts.
I’m not usually a very political person, myself, but I’m trying to convert all of my older patterns from JPG images to free printable PDF sewing patterns. And with the United States presidential election at hand, I thought today would be a good time to re-post this pattern as a PDF.
Today’s pattern includes a pattern for a dress, a scarf, and a purse, but the purse went with another outfit. To learn more about how to make the purse, please click here.
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 dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the outfit shown at the top of this page:
