My First Barbie 13.5″ Free Printable Sewing Pattern

Oh guys, it’s been a journey, I must say. More about that later. At the moment I’m *grateful* that I still have technology enough to produce a reasonably decent printable pattern. We have moved off grid, kind of feels like we fell off the world computer-wise. I have Android and a little solar battery and it’s harder than it used to be with a lot more steps, but it’s doable. Just more challenges to overcome makes it more satisfying, right?

So. A new “preschool” version fashion model doll, two inches larger than the usual one.

I liked her, and must make something for her. Let’s go. We need clothes!

Here’s what I have so far. Just a basic short, cute shift dress with dressing-up possibilities.

It’s another one piece masterpiece, super easy. Cute stuff can be made with it, you’ll see, I’m working on a couple more models! And maybe I’ll make her a more structured, tailored, fashionable, multi-pieced, fiddly, difficult outfit later. We’ll see.

Download the pdf, it’s letter size 8.5×11″ and print at 100% scaling. It has some instructions on it.

I’ll add more pics here as I work on the next model. If you make something cool with it, share a photo!

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT FOR THE USUAL SIZE DOLL – only for 13.5″ tall Barbie. If you aren’t sure which doll you have, try the “One Size Fits All” dress!

There are some instructions on the pattern.

  1. im new to sewing -but giving it a go for my granddaughter’s “my first Barbie”. My first dress was freehand -using a 1990 GI Joe as the model -dress looked a little more like a hospital gown -but it was pink unicorns and my granddaughter (3.5) loved it. Ready to tackle something cuter and this will be perfect for a mini mouse fabric. Thanks for posting and allowing a free printable pattern!
