I need patterns or templates to make clothing for both Barbie and Ken. I'm tired of them getting to run around naked all day. :)  They do have some clothes but alot are battered and torn. Both Ken's only have a pair of shorts. I'm looking for pants, shorts for both B and K and then dresses/skirts for B.

Where can I find FREE patterns.

Thank you!!

My mom might still have some, she made me barbie clothes once, said it was a pain doing the small stiches. Make sure you hem before stiching up the sides, on the legs and arms of the tops.

If you have some old clothes for them cut them on the seam or seam rip them, lay the old fabric down trace it, add seam allowance, and now you have a pattern. I dont have a barbie or ken to make a pattern for you, but could if I had one of each.

I've been using all their old clothes. I kept the bottom half of the gurls jeans when I made the shorts so that Ken has jeans. Lol

I've tried laying Ken down on paper and tracing his outline leaving enough for seam allowance. The shorts turned out ok. Was kind of a tight fit.

For the shorts did you stich them the way our shorts or pants are stiched or just a simple U for the center legs and croch?

No I forgot to account for the hips. Lol it made a very tight fit around the hips but everywhere else fit fine. My sewing machine was down and I had to hand stitch everything.
