I sewed them every once in a while. I have a grand daughter that i will be making clothes for her barbies when she gets older. some time i just cut some scraps and put to gether and give them away.

I do. But I just got my DD an 18" doll for her to learn about sewing clothes. Barbie clothes are just that little bit too small and fiddly for her.

I do. I do. I do. I knit, crochet, and sew them. That is the only size doll I make clothes for.

Edited to add: this probably belongs under Creative Sewing or Misc. I'm certain a Mod will move it if necessary.

I do. When I get a chance, it seems to take more time to make a barbie dress than a grownup dress. Esp those small tiny sleeves.

Did you have a question about sewing the clothes?

I don't anymore, but I just had to say something, because of all the memories this brings up

I actually learned to sew by making Barbie doll clothes! Mom made my clothes, & I managed to talk her into making my Barbie clothes (I actually preferred drawing & coloring clothes for my paper dolls - does anyone have paper dolls anymore???) until she got tired of my pleading whine "But you can do it SOOO much better than meeeee!" Once she refused to do them for me anymore, I made Barbie clothes until I graduated to making my own.

ETA: this was all on a Featherweight - somehow seems so appropriate

Ohhh the memories this one brought. I remember watching my mom make the most beautiful clothes for my barbie. I remember laying on the couch and pulling up chairs to watch her late at night which I was suppose to be asleep...lol Then I would cry when my little friends "borrowed" them and never gave them back.

Ah, paper dolls. I was very selective as the dolls had to be posed in a certain way so that I could design paper clothes for them. I had a king and queen and when stacked up, I had about 3" of clothes for the queen.

Thanks for the memories.

Oh, memories! OK, who's old enough to remember when you could buy fabric with Barbie "patterns" printed on it? All you did was cut out the garment shapes and sew them together. I recall making Barbie clothes on my grandmother's treadle machine. Wouldn't want to have to do that today hahahaha!!!!
