In today's Master Class, we will tell and show you how to sew a summer dress for Barbie dolls with your own hands using improvised materials and a sewing machine.
For a summer sundress for a Barbie doll, the following materials will be required:
- Denim, old jeans will do.
- Calico fabric is a small piece, about 40 to 40 centimeters.
- Needle with thread.
- Chalk, in order to circle the patterns, because on some dark types of fabric the lines drawn by a pencil are not visible.
- Patterns or pattern paper.
- Sewing machine.
We begin to manufacture a summer dress for Barbie dolls.
First you need to make patterns. The presented patterns are made for a standard Barbie doll and clothes sewn on them can be great for dolls from the Bratz and Monster High collections. Therefore, for dolls of these collections and dolls of similar physique, patterns must be done separately. There is nothing complicated in it and on the Internet you will find many sources about how easy and simple it is to make a pattern.
For a summer sundress, we need the following patterns: the back of the bodice with undercuts 2 pieces, the front part of the bodice also with tucks - 2 pieces, the hem of the sundress - we have a skirt with a sun, a circle with a diameter of 25 cm - 1 piece, two patterns for the collar, and also if desired, a sundress can be turned into a dress by sewing on sleeves to it, patterns are also presented.
Having figured out the number and purpose of the patterns, you can begin to cut them.
First of all, we cut the hem of the sarafan and the collar, only these two details will be sewn from denim, for this we fit the patterns and circle with chalk. When cutting, we make allowances for seams of about 5 mm.
Then we circle and cut out the sleeves and the front and back parts of the bodice, as well as the sleeves. And do not forget about allowances otherwise the finished product will be small.
All parts are ready to start sewing. We will do this on a sewing machine, some special professional skills of sewing on a sewing machine are not required, but if you don’t have one, you can use a needle and a thread.
First, we sew the bodice of the sundress, the front parts and the back separately, it is necessary to sew the undercuts, so the product will seem more elegant.
After that, we sew these two parts together.
The next step we need to sew on the collar at the top of the sundress.To do this, we first sew each detail of the collar around the perimeter with a regular line, and then sew it to the bodice, it should turn out as shown in the photo.
Next, we sew the hem of the dress, first also with the usual line in a circle, and then sew the side section
The last step is to sew the bottom of the sundress to the top. In addition, we also left patterns with sleeves, then you can sew them, and if not, you just need to stitch the sides of the sleeves on a typewriter, folding them in advance so that the fabric does not get stained
