This party dress has been available on my website for some time now, but I didn’t have the PDF for Tall Barbie dolls posted on my website until today.
However this simple dress fits a variety of Barbie-sized dolls. It’s an extremely versatile pattern!
The pattern includes an apron and a sleeve, but to make the basic party dress, you only need to print Page 2 of the pattern set. And you won’t need the sleeve at all.
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Barbie dolls
- Tall Barbie dolls
Here are your free, printable PDF sewing patterns and tutorial videos for making the dress shown at the top of this page:
