For Halloween, or as part of a Cosplay Renaissance Faire, let’s make a musketeer costume to fit Mattel’s Curvy Barbie dolls!
To make today’s fun Halloween costume or cosplay outfit, you’ll need some flannel fabric, cotton fabric, craft foam, a solid-colored sock, a craft feather, a hook-and-eye closure, and some Dritz size 2/0 snaps.
And it’s optional, but I also did a decorative stitch around my Musketeer jacket, using embroidery floss in tan, to match the flannel. Tan flannel fabric looks and feels like suede, and the tan embroidery floss gives the impression that the jacket has been sewn with leather thongs.
Rather than a hook and eye, you could also use a jewelry “toggle” for a front closure instead. That would make a very pretty embellishment.
Please note that this pattern will also fit regular Barbie dolls and many similar-sized dolls (see list below).
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:

Now the pants that I originally designed to go with this musketeer outfit do not fit Curvy, so I compromised and made her some tights. But if you’re sewing this outfit for a regular Barbie or similar sized dolls, click here for a pants pattern to go with your tunic, jacket, and hat.
You could make bi-colored pants with that pattern, and the tutorial that shows how that’s done is found here.
And this page offers lots of embroidery tutorials, so you can embellish the side of your Renaissance trousers with a stitch like the one shown below:
If you’re wondering about my Curvy Barbie’s boots, those are Liv Doll boots from Spin Master. They no longer make these, but you can buy them used on eBay. They have that handy slit up the back to make room for Curvy‘s lovely calves.
