In all honesty, this is a revision of an older tutorial, not something brand new to my website or YouTube channel. In my sewing room, I keep a to-do list, and revising this tutorial has been on my to-do list for about 9 months now. The older version was made while I was traveling, so the lighting was bad and there were significant steps missing from the tutorial.
So I’ve taken the time to re-design this tutorial, and hopefully I’ve made some helpful improvements.
As I said in yesterday’s blog post, you’ll need some elastic for the casing on these pants, and I recommend purchasing a yard or more from PensPins on Etsy, which is where I have bought a lot of the elastic I use in my videos (and obviously in my doll-clothes-making projects).
Today’s patterns will fit these dolls:
- Queens of Africa Dolls
- Momoko dolls
- modern and Made-to-Move Barbie dolls
- vintage Francie dolls
- Liv dolls
- Disney Princess 11 inch dolls
