Some of you have seen this outfit before, but today I’m converting my old JPG image patterns for making this outfit to an easy-to-print PDF sewing pattern for this outfit.
To make today’s pants for your Curvy Barbie doll (or similar sized dolls), you’ll need some cotton fabric and 1/8 inch wide elastic. To make the felt shirt, you’ll need some craft felt, ribbon, and size 3/0 snaps.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Curvy Barbie (from Mattel)
- Vintage Tammy dolls (from Ideal Toy Corp.)
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls

How do I use the 2 inch ruler on printed pattern to make pattern fit CURVEY Barbie?
Hi Margenia. Well, the “measurement tool” is just a guide to help you see whether or not you printed the pattern correctly. Lay your ruler alongside the one on the page. If they match, you’ve printed the pattern at the right scale.
As long as you’ve printed the pattern at the right printer settings, this pattern should work fine for your Curvy, just as it is. However if the measurement tool doesn’t match your ruler, then you may need to adjust your printer’s settings.
This is especially helpful for people who don’t live in the United States (which is where I live) because they use A4 printer paper, which is different from the printer paper we use here in the USA. That’s one of the reasons why I put a measurement tool on my patterns. It was requested by people who live outside the US, so they could also print my patterns, using A4 paper.
