I got a request to make a blazer for Barbie, so here is a new pattern - Barbie Business Suit. The pattern is split into three parts - Blazer, Pencil Skirt, and Tank Top.

This is a free crochet pattern for Barbie Business Suit. The whole set is specifically made for Barbie Model Muse body type. For more information on the different body types of Barbie, please visit Crochet Clothes for Your Barbie Doll. The blazer should fit the other body types of Barbie, since it is loose fitting anyway.

Row 10: Ch 1, sc in each of the first 2 dc, dc in the next sc, (sc in the next dc, dc in the next sc) across, dc in the next sl st, turn.

With WS facing out, sew the sleeves to the shoulders by pinning the center top of the sleeve to the center of the shoulder seam to align them together. So you start by sewing the armhole, going around until it is all sewn together, then go down the sides of the sleeve. Weave in all ends.

Turn your work inside out.

Styling

In order to demonstrate that the Blazer fits on other Barbie body types, I put the Blazer on the Barbie Made to Move doll on top of Barbie Vertical Striped Dress. This was the only dress I had available that matched the color of the Blazer, so I could only take this photo.

But, you should be able to use any other dress design I have to complete a look for Barbie. Make sure to make them in complementary colors to create even more looks for your doll.
