Dream It. Design It. Make It.
The Designed By You Fashion kits provide children with an introduction to the basics of fashion design. We encourage children to experiment with fabrics and trims, draping the mannequin, sketching their ideas into the sketch book etc.
Although the focus of the Designed By You Fashion Studio kit is not on sewing or making doll clothes, we have heard feedback from consumers that Barbie® Fashionistas® Doll - Curvy by Mattel is a doll that is closer in size to match the dress form. This is not something that we’ve tested or advertise. It is just feedback from consumers who chose to purchase a doll to work along with the project. We also know that some children have enjoyed making outfits and dressing up their stuffed animals in the fabric and trims in the kit.
The mannequin found in the New Designed By You Fairy Fashions kit is smaller (11.5") and allows for garments to be made for your favorite 11+ inch doll.
