who can point me to patterns for Barbie clothes?

I also would like to make some cute nighties and aprons...

I've seen lots of vintage Barbie patterns on eBay...wish I could be more specific, but I always start with eBay!

I never paid a ton of attention, because I'm not a Barbie Person, but one of the big pattern companies (I think Butterick, but I'm not 100% positive) did a huge line of reproduction vintage Barbie clothes patterns a few years ago...I don't know if they still have them, though. But I agree with Mimi -- e-bay is always a good starting place...and patterns galore! I never fail to find loads of things I love.

Vogue has some nice Barbie patterns. There is a seller on ebay that takes vintage patterns and remakes them for various sized dolls. I am always finding great patterns on ebay by independent pattern makers for my Ellowynn Wilde and Gene dolls.

I don't have her, but I love Gene! She has THE best wardrobe! I've never heard of Ellowynn, though -- who is she?

Recently, I saw the most adorable 1920s/30s patterns for (it seemed) Barbie or Gene-sized dolls. I almost bought it just for the heck of it. Voila:

I have two of the Gene dolls, but there is no way I'm going to sew clothes for them!
There is a limit to my patience these days...I admire you girls for doing it, truly!

I never had fashion-type dolls growing up (and still don't), but my mom used to make the most gorgeous clothes for my dolls (and a lot were hand-me-downs from my older sister.) And my Teddy Bear is very smart in a homemade Aran turtleneck sweater. (well, actually, it was meant for me when I was a wee one, but Mummy accidently put it in the washing machine. Oops. so Teddy's worn it for as long as I can remember.)

My grandmother used to knit and crochet clothes for baby dolls and Barbie.

We had a few Barbies around here, but M wasn't really impressed so we passed them on to younger family members.

Barbie isn't what she once was, I have to say...I miss the tarty 50s Barbie with the black eyeliner and the half-closed eyes!

Ellowyne is a Robert Tonner doll also. She suffers from ennui and lives on a fault line.

Someone on myspace recently told me she was knitting a '60s dress for Barbie...we decided that Barbie is in desperate need of a wardrobe makeover, and should go on "What Not to Wear." heehee....
