Last week I showed you how to make the long-sleeved shirt that goes with this pattern; this week I’ll be showing you how to make a pair of elastic-waist pants or jeans, using this pattern.

Ideally, you should use this pattern with lightweight stretch denim, just to offer a little more “give” when small hands are dressing their dolls. If you want an easy-to-download image (one that can be enlarged), here’s a link to my actual pattern page within this blog.

As the heading atop the pattern implies, these jeans are designed for fashion dolls in the 16-inch to 17-inch range (41 cm to 43 cm for BJD‘s), which includes but is not limited to dolls made by the FibreCraft™, Tonner®, and Mattel® companies.

Tomorrow I’ll post the video tutorial, showing how to make these relatively easy-to-sew pants or jeans.

My Gallery Page is the easiest way to search through all of my patterns to find what you want. Each image on the Gallery Page takes you to links for patterns and tutorials.

Need help printing my patterns? This link offers a tutorial showing you how to download and print my FREE patterns using Google Docs. (For the older print-a-pattern tutorial, which uses Microsoft Word, click here.) To review my difficulty scale (demonstrating how hard or easy a pattern is by the number of flowers displayed), take a look back at this blog post.

Please note: you must enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) without margins, before printing. These designs use a scant 1/4 inch seam (4 mm to be exact).

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. My patterns are now available through “Creative Commons Attribution.” This means that I created my patterns (and therefore I own rights to them), but I’m willing to share them with everyone who will tell people about my website.

Here are some helpful ways to tell the world about my patterns:

Are you new to sewing? I’ve got a playlist 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 use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, for those who are new to design and alterations.

In case you haven’t heard, I have actually designed some 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.

If your question wasn’t answered here, feel free to submit a question. I’m always happy to help my followers find what they need, so they, too, can make amazing doll clothes and crafts!
