2 Minute Doll Clothes

 

My "Barbara" Dolls were my constant companions growing up.  They went wherever I went, but they were rockstars and astronauts.  They were veterinarians and models.  And they did whatever they wanted.  They took NO naps and stood on all the furniture they wanted.  They changed outfits whenever they felt like it and some of their favorites were the homemade clothes my Gran and I made.  The best part about this project is that it takes about 2 minutes.  No really!  And once your kid masters the art of scissors they can do this confidently on their own.  

Supplies:

Kid sock (a long one not a no show)

Scissors

Doll

Imagination (not pictured)

My favorite look was the Off the Shoulder dress.

1. The opening of the sock is the skirt of the dress.

 

2. Cut off the foot part of the sock

3. Cut two arm holes.

4. Dress your doll.

 

You can also make a one shoulder dress by cutting diagonally across and cutting only one arm hole.

 

Or very simply you can make a tube top shirt or dress or a skirt by simply cutting the sock to the appropriate length. ( Those lace top socks make cute clothes)

 

You can make Barbara a belt or a top knot.

 

 Oh socks!  My childhood Barbara clothing store.  What do you think of this fun little craft? Do you do a craft with socks?  Tell me all about it.  Share your Barbara sock clothes with me by tagging me Instagram or Facebook.  Using hashtag #aprildoesthat or shoot me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I have so many fun memories from making Barbie clothes this way as a child. My favorite was a fire engine red nylon which I fashioned into an evening gown which I could have floor length or scrunch up around the legs and make it a mini dress.
My favorite of the ones you featured in this entry is definitely the one shoulder stripped dress! I want a full sized one for myself! ?

That sounds so cute! My favorite was the off the shoulder when I was little (blame the 80's) but I agree with you I love the one shoulder now And yes too bad we don't have some giant socks we could make dresses out of in 2 minutes for ourselves

I bet that was pretty! When I was little I loved that off the shoulder look. (blame the 80's) But now I agree with you, I like that one shoulder look. Too bad we can't make 2 minute clothes out of giant socks for ourselves, right!? ?
