Both the shorts and the felt shirt you see on my SuperStar Barbie are patterns I created and posted quite a while ago. However this is the first time I’ve posted them as part of the vintage Barbie gallery.
If you live in the northern hemisphere, you may not be aware that people who live in the southern hemisphere of the earth (places like Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, etc…) are enjoying the heat of summer in December.
So this pattern is being posted with those folks in mind. Their Barbie dolls need to dress for the warm weather!
Today’s outfit will fit these 11-inch dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- Liv dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the outfit shown at the top of this page:
