20+ FREE Printable Clothes Patterns to Sew for 11.5″ Dolls

Hello, sewing enthusiasts! It’s Luna here!

Unlock Creativity: 20+ Free Doll Outfit Patterns for 11.5″ Fashionistas!

For Christmas, my little girl wished for plastic dolls and a collection of chic outfits for them. While I didn’t play much with Barbies or Bratz during my childhood, meaning no hand-me-downs, I absolutely adore sewing for her larger 18” doll!

However, I found myself facing a challenge when trying to shop for readymade clothes for the more standard 11.5″ fashion dolls. Local stores came up short on both Barbie-branded outfits and patterns. Determined, I started rummaging through my fabric scraps, planning to craft a stylish wardrobe for these new dolls post-holidays.

I embarked on an online journey to discover free sewing patterns suitable for 11″-11.5″ plastic fashion dolls like Barbie, Bratz, Sindy, L.O.L. Surprise, and even budget-friendly options from Dollar Tree. If you, like me, are just diving into the world of sewing for these dolls or are seeking fresh ideas, stick around! I’ve curated a list of awesome free patterns shared by our fellow bloggers!

Free Sewing Patterns for 11.5″ Dolls (E.g., Barbie, Bratz, Sindy, LOL Surprise)

Note: As plastic dolls vary slightly in dimensions, you might need to make minor adjustments to some patterns. Or, opt for designs that use knit fabrics, which are more adaptable to diverse doll figures.
