This image shows a pair of doll shorts with an elastic waist and a single pocket at the back (buttocks) area of the shorts. The image has a watermark which says where you can find the free printable sewing pattern and easy-to-follow tutorial video for making a pair of shorts like these to fit your dolls. These shorts will fit dolls in the 13-inch (33 cm), 14 inch (35.5 cm), 15 inch (38 cm), 16 inch (40.5 cm), and even some 17 inch or 18 inch (43 cm to 46 cm) size range.

Monday is the day when I typically give my readers a preview of the project for the week ahead. I also like to show off which dolls can fit in this week’s free pattern, like the BFC Ink doll shown below:

Visit ChellyWood.com for free printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes. This photo shows a BFC Ink articulated 18 inch doll modeling a pair of handmade doll shorts with a pocket. She stands in front of a retro blue and off-white poster designed by the AU Poetry Center. The doll tosses her head to one side but appears to stand entirely on her own. The outfit she's wearing includes a V-neck shirt with short sleeves and a pair of shorts with a pocket at the back of the garment. You can download the free printable sewing patterns for making this outfit at ChellyWood.com (which is where you can also find a video tutorial showing how to make this outfit for 18" dolls like the BFC Ink dolls). It should be noted that this pattern will not fit American Girl dolls.

The pattern for the V-neck shirt has already been posted, but the shorts (with one little pocket at the back) are what we’ll be learning to sew this week. As you can see in the image below, this outfit also fits the Hearts for Hearts Girls:

The image shows a Hearts for Hearts Girl (H4H or Hearts4Hearts or Hearts 4 Hearts dolls) standing in a garden of grass and flowers. She wears mint green shorts with a shirt that buttons up the back. The shorts have a single back pocket. There's a FREE printable PDF pattern for sewing this outfit on the website that's watermarked on the photo, ChellyWood.com (free printable sewing patterns for dolls of many shapes and sizes). This doll clothes pattern will also fit dolls in the 13-inch (33 cm), 14 inch (35.5 cm), 15 inch (38 cm), 16 inch (40.5 cm), and even some 17 inch or 18 inch (43 cm to 46 cm) size range.

The Hearts4Hearts (also spelled H4H online sometimes) dolls are 14″ tall, but this week’s pattern will most likely fit quite a few dolls in the a wide size range, including some 13-inch (33 cm), 14 inch (35.5 cm), 15 inch (38 cm), 16 inch (40.5 cm), and even some small-bodied 17 inch or 18 inch (43 cm to 46 cm) dolls.

As you’ll see in Thursday’s instructional tutorial video, the lace top we made last week also looks very nice with this week’s shorts project. Have a look:

The image shows a BFC Ink 18" doll wearing clothes made using free printable PDF swing patterns found at ChellyWood.com and the doll stands before a retro poster that looks a lot like a piano keyboard. The retro keyboard comes from the UA (University of Arizona) Poetry Center and is used here with permission. The doll's clothes include a lace trimmed shirt and a pair of elastic-waist shorts.

But as we noted last week, vintage Crissy dolls don’t fit in this outfit quite as well as vintage Velvet dolls, which are a bit smaller. Here’s vintage Velvet wearing an outfit made with this week’s patterns:

As you can see, Velvet looks alright, even though the lace top is a wee bit short on her midriff.

However I recommend using a longer shirt for Crissy, and you might agree with me if you scroll down to look at the image below:

The image shows a vintage Crissy doll from Ideal Toy Corp wearing a handmade V-neck shirt with matching shorts. This image is part of a #memade Monday post on the doll clothes sewing patterns website ChellyWood.com, where you can download free printable pdf patterns to fit Crissy dolls, American Girl dolls, Wellie Wisher dolls, Barbie dolls, Monster High dolls, and many other dolls of different shapes and sizes.

I mean, yes, it fits her, but I really think a longer shirt (like the felt one) might look a little better with these shorts, on your vintage 18 inch Crissy dolls.

Remember that it’s always helpful for you to pin my images on Pinterest, tweet about them, or share them on some other form of social media. It helps bring traffic to this website, which means more fun for everyone (including myself)!
