Here’s my miniature Christmas stocking pattern, and alongside it is a simple pattern for a pair of boot-cut pants or trousers to fit 11.5-inch fashion dolls like Barbie®, Queens of Africa Dolls™, and many other, similar-sized dolls.
After I post my tutorial for making the miniature Christmas stocking tomorrow, I’ll post some links to some of my favorite patterns for making doll pants. The pattern above was used to make the white pants Barbie® is wearing in Monday’s post.
I get a lot of requests for doll pants, and with Christmas right around the corner, I bet some of you are looking for a simple pattern for making a pair of pants or jeans for your children’s dolls.
If you’re looking for a single pattern with lots of doll clothes options for creating a fashion doll wardrobe, my Summer Wardrobe pattern is a favorite of many of my followers. Just click on that link to download it.

Please note: you must enlarge the pattern to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects).
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and videos without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations.
In case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls in their line, including a new male doll, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
I’ve also got a series of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. It includes video tutorials showing you how to do a basic straight stitch when sewing by hand, how to gather fabric, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, just like I do!
