Doll Basic Pants Pattern Tutorial
Step 1 – Assemble the pattern and cut out pieces
You will be cutting two of the pattern – so on folded cloth cut out the pattern.
Tip: It’s really easy to make multiple pants at the same time. So cut out all the pants at once – you’ll save time.
Step 2 – Pin and sew each pant leg
Step 3 – Pin pants together and sew
Step 4 – Thread elastic and finish
Turn the waistband down .5 inches. Pin. Using a medium zigzag sew along edge of waist starting at a seam and stopping 1 inch short of completing the seam.
Using a safety pin pinned on one end of the elastic – thread the elastic through the waistband (taking care to keep the other end exposed). Sew elastic Ends together. Sew opening closed. Trim thread and turn right side out Voila
Okay pieces 1&2 came through .. and nothing else.
I have downloaded the file program to download the PDF and that hasn’t worked either.. Suggestions are appreciated !
I am a little confused… The pdf file is four pages long, the pattern itself is only 2 pages. If you aren’t able to download try clearing your internet cache or a different browser. If you are still having difficulty let me know. =)
I have been trying to find the patten for the coat and hat in this picture. The fleece matches this pant pattern. Does anyone know where I can find these patterns (or the actual doll clothes)?
Thank you so much.
Made some fleece doll PJ bottoms and cotton ones using the pattern above – thanks so much. Very easy to follow – thanks for the video too – it really helped as I am not a stitcher/sew-er!

Thank you for helping me be the ‘hit grandma’ of the year! My two grand-daughters Natatlie, 7 and Anna 4, are ready to learn to sew! We will start with the pants…I’ll need help with the top shown on the pattern photo…I will check out your web-page…THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO TO HELP those of us out here that can not spend $22.00 plus for a pattern at the store. Teaching our children to be careful with a dollar bill and mindful to share our talents and time with others is PRICELESS! Grandma Debora
