Here’s another dress pattern to make your own outfits for Best Fashion Friend Barbie.

NOTE this is NOT the regular height Barbie, this is the big 28 inch super sized one! But not 36 inch My Size Barbie either. I don’t have clothes for the 36″ one. I have regular height 11.5 inch Barbie clothes on the old site. Check the index page for the links.

I’m sharing this in late fall for the benefit of all of you grandmas who need to make doll clothing right now. I last worked on it in 2018 and haven’t gotten back to it yet so it’s not finished, just the basic pattern pieces. Here are some clothes I made during the testing process.


Some of those have the side seams cut straight downwards instead of curved in.

As you can see it fits 28 inch Descendants too.  (A dress for Evie is coming SOON.) 


There’s a beach dress I cut out of a pregathered garment then added a wide ruffle. The garment was already gathered so that made the skirt wide.


Another long Hawaiian muumuu. 

Cute country girl Barbie. I think this was the first version I tried making more fitted, then didn’t like it and made a crop top instead. I’ll share that short skirt pattern here shortly. 

Another crop top version and that denim pencil skirt is coming soon, too. 

This one I made up just now using the dress extension that is in the pdf. I’m not entirely happy with the back, but it’s okay for now. I’ll probably put a pink ruffle on the bottom of this and then fiddle with the pattern more in the next version.
