Thread and Thrum: Barbie Doll Costumes

August 11, 2009: It's been a while, but I've finally gotten two new costumes added to my costume gallery
January 29, 2009: Lots of new additions!
  • Patterns and Projects page
  • Pattern and directions for making a chemise
  • Doll Differences: a look at the different types of Barbie dolls and considerations needed for costuming

This site is a combination of Barbie costume sewing and historical costume information. Go to "Costume Gallery" and then click on a thumbnail for further information on the project and on related costume history (I'm still working on this).
I will be trying to add tips or other useful Barbie costume sewing info soon.
