This week on, I’ll be giving you the free printable doll clothes patterns for sewing a pair of simple doll pants like the ones you see in the images above and below.

Image shows the Kiya doll from the American Girl Doll company wearing a hand-made halter top, hand-sewn pants, and DIY sandals. She carries a hand-sewn duffle bag that matches her outfit. She stands on a sandy beach with a seascape behind her including rocky cliffs and rolling waves. Kiya looks at the camera with honest eyes. She extends one hand in which she carries the DIY duffle bag. The header for the image says, "Purple Duffle Bag Pattern for AG Dolls FREE 2" and the watermark says, " FREE doll clothes patterns and tutorials." In fact, if you go to, you can download the free, printable sewing pattern for this duffle bag (and the other American Girl -sized doll clothes patterns for the other items of clothing she wears) and all patterns at are free and come with a free tutorial video showing how to make the clothing item (including this duffle bag or overnight bag for dolls).

As you can see, this free printable pants pattern will fit 18″ (18 inch) American Girl dolls and (see below) 46 cm Madame Alexander dolls. This week’s free doll clothes pattern is part of an ensemble we’ve been working on, which includes a gymnastics sports bag, a summer shirt, this week’s pants sewing patterns, and soon we’ll even see how to make the sandals shown on my dolls in these images.

Because 18 inch dolls are larger than the other dolls I design for, these pants will come in a 2-pattern set. I’ll post the first pattern on Tuesday, the second pattern on Wednesday, and then on Thursday, you’ll see the tutorial video that shows you not only how to tape the pants pattern together, but also my tutorial will offer step-by-step instructions for sewing the pants using fabric.

So please come back later this week to continue the crafting fun!


Additional Information:


Some of my followers have wondered what motivates me to give my patterns away for free.

First of all, I’m a librarian by trade. Librarians love free stuff! We believe that the more a person knows, the more enriched their life will be. So it may sound kind of crazy, but I want to become a sort of library of free patterns that help people learn to sew doll clothes.

If you’d like to learn more about my motives, feel free to visit my Chelly’s Books page.

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).

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. 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.

    1. Hey Guyloup, feel free to share my patterns on your different Facebook groups. They are marked with “Creative Commons: Attribution” which just means you need to tell where these patterns came from. But they are free for everyone to share and enjoy!
