New sewing pattern for Barbie and friends

If you like making the easy bodices from my sewing patterns Party Time, Evening Gala, Holliday Affair, and Lavinia, you’ll love this bodice pattern as well. All of these bodice patterns have no pesky side seams to worry about and use straps that you tack onto the back of the bodice for a perfect fit. The Lorali bodice features a wide v-neckline with straps that sit just off the shoulder and form cap sleeves. The skirt may look complicated, but it just requires a series of simple steps to complete beautifully, with each step illustrated with photos. Pattern available now in my Etsy shop.

Kiara for Barbie and friends

I ordered some gorgeous embroidered sari fabric from India and I’ve been having fun using it in Barbie outfits. The sari fabric I used in this outfit is embroidered in fuchsia and orange with silver sequins. I made the coordinating princess seamed jacket from fuchsia silk. Available now in my Etsy shop.
