Item Description

Welcome! Offered are reproductions of a wide variety of vintage Barbie or similar 11"-12" doll patterns. Patterns are copies of mostly rough hand drawn custom Barbie patterns and age of dress styles vary widely with both historical and contemporary items. I have picked these up over the years from various doll collector estates, so there is very limited information on where they came from. These are old, hardly ever seen and are not commercial patterns. Please read full description.

Most of these patterns, as I said, are rough, hand drawn or hand traced and most of them I've never seen before. Directions are few, minimal and basic, either handwritten or typed and assume the user knows basic garment construction. Sketches are sometimes rough, simple and not overly detailed. Please do not expect McCalls type patterns with cutting layout, etc. Picture shows some of the actual patterns. These are not pretty professional style patterns but rather an interesting lot that are fun to go through.

There are approx. 75 sheets of black and white patterns/directions on 8.5" x 11" paper. These patterns are in the public domain and do not infringe on any copyright. From my smoke free home. Copy offered, not for original nor for finished doll clothing. These patterns do not qualify for media mail.

Payment within 7 days please. I recommend insurance as I am not responsible for loss/damage during shipping. Please ask questions before buying as all sales are final.

As always, my thanks!
