Today’s video tutorial shows you how to make a flannel and cotton nightgown for regular Barbie and Made-to-Move Barbies, but it will fit a lot of other dolls too. Check out the first bulleted list for a more concise list of all the dolls that can wear this pajama/nightgown/night dress.
As you can see, I also made my Barbie some little tiny felt slippers. Ordinary craft felt will work fine for these, and they’re super easy to sew!
The slipper pattern is found on the third page of the patterns’ PDF.
You’ll find that the pattern below includes a pattern for angel wings and a pattern for a bathrobe with pockets. Those tutorials are on the way, so remember to either follow this website by signing up for my newsletter, or follow my YouTube channel, to see these other tutorials when they post.
