Doesn’t everybody love to get a new pair of pajama pants for Christmas? I’m sure Barbie is no exception!
If you’re sewing a Barbie wardrobe to give to someone for Christmas, a pair of pajama pants is definitely a must-do! So here’s the tutorial showing how to make these high-waisted, fly-front capri-style pajama pants with a lining.
I recommend making the outer pants out of flannel, but use a lighter-weight cotton for the lining. That’s how I made the red pair, and I really like how they turned out. Here’s a close-up… Note the fly area. You can see the white cotton lining that I used:
Note: You’ll see a bathrobe front on the second page of the capri pants pattern. I’m not finished adapting this bathrobe for Barbie, and the back section isn’t ready for publication just yet. So please be patient… It’s coming!
