Can your doll fit into these harvest-themed pants for 9-inch #Dolls? #TapeMeasureTuesday #Harvest

This week we'll be sewing these ankle pants for 9 inch fashion dolls like the World of Love "Flower" doll shown in this image wearing a pair of tiny ankle pants with a harvest-themed pattern (decorated with acorns, leaves, autumnal flowers, and a few cornucopias scattered across the fabric).

Last week, on Tuesday, I offered a contest. Blog followers had to guess the name of one of three different dolls who can also wear these doll clothes:

The image shows "Flower" (a doll from the World of Love collection) wearing handmade doll clothes including a pair of ankle pants and a long-sleeve shirt. The free printable sewing patterns for these doll clothes are found at

Look back at last Tuesday’s post and scroll down to the comments to see if your doll can also wear this week’s pattern. These doll clothes will fit a lot of dolls! So it’s worth it to have a look.

Soul, one of the 9-inch World of Love dolls from Hasbro, stands alone in a room with a single office chair and window. She wears capri pants made of a cotton fabric that's decorated with tiny pink flowers and lavender-colored vines. She wears a matching lavender shirt with two tiny buttons at the top. The shirt has long sleeves and a conservative rounded neckline but no collar. She wears tiny white plastic flats. If you would like to make an outfit like this for your 9-inch (23 cm) dolls, you can find the free, printable PDF patterns at along with tutorial videos showing how to make both the shirt and the capri pants.

I designed these clothes for my World of Love dolls. Soul (the African American doll) and Flower (the red-headed doll) are from a vintage set of dolls produced by Hasbro.

Today’s post includes a variation on last week’s pattern. The Capri pants from last week can also be sewn at a longer length, to create ankle pants for your dolls. If you look back at last week’s pattern, you’ll see that the pants are offered in two lengths: capris and ankle pants.

Flower is wearing my harvest-themed ankle pants in the image below.

You could follow the tutorial for making the capris, even if you were trying to make the ankle pants because, let’s face it… there’s only about a centimeter’s difference between the two.

Social media offers you an opportunity to share images of my dolls and talk about where you get all your free patterns. That’s how I make a little bit of money to keep this blog running. So if you enjoy my free patterns and tutorial videos, remember to share my photos and jpg pattern images all over the internet!
