Barbie doll is a fashionista known all over the world. She has not only a lot of fans around the world, many girlfriends, a beautiful house and loyal fiancé Ken, but also an extensive wardrobe. You can dress a Barbie yourself, simply by making clothes for her with your own hands.
Items for dolls, especially for Barbies, are expensive. In addition, the assortment in stores is not wide - everything is glamorous pink and shiny, how can you develop a child's sense of style! You can help your doll to always be in trend and on the wave of fashion - to sew clothes yourself. This is not so difficult, the main thing is to understand the pattern for constructing patterns. Patterns can be found in huge quantities on the Internet. Recently, there are many dolls similar to Barbie, but with different parameters. Therefore, after downloading a pattern, do not rush to sew clothes immediately from good fabric, try to sew a product from chintz or other cheap cotton material. After trying on, you will see the flaws in the pattern, which you can make adjustments to.
The most important aspect is the choice of fabric. The details of the doll's clothes are very small, so the fabric should not slip, part or have too loose edge. Avoid fabrics such as satin, silk, organza. Give preference to linen, denim, knitwear, cotton, calico, calico, fleece. In specialized stores, you can even buy the appropriate accessories - small zippers and buttons. However, you can show your imagination - small beads can serve as buttons, and instead of a zipper, you can sew in a piece of Velcro or a button of zero size.
Select a model when you start sewing. Build a pattern or download a ready-made one from the Internet. Cut the fabric out. Do not forget about the seam and fastening allowances. Start sweeping everything with thread. Periodically try on the doll with the suit inside out. Directly on it, you can make tucks and grooves, cut off excess material. Do not forget to constantly iron the whole garment and the seams in particular - this will make them softer and the suit more tidy.
You can make shoes and accessories for Barbie from baking plastic. Knead the plastic of the required color in your hands, form a shoe right on the doll's leg. In order to create the effect of the skin without removing, press the crumpled foil into the surface of the plastic several times. Carefully remove the shoe and place it in an oven heated to 120 C for 20-30 minutes. After cooling, the shoes will harden and can be varnished.
