I have my friend Jeretta to thank for this panties pattern that I’ve recently discovered will fit my 8 inch Vogue Ginny doll, so THANK YOU JERETTA!
It was Jeretta who asked me, quite some time ago, to design some doll clothes patterns for her 6 inch Mini American Girl doll, and I designed a selection of doll clothes for those little cuties.
The panties pattern, I discovered, would fit a number of dolls, though, and today I’m sharing it with you for vintage Vogue Ginny dolls.
If you’re interested in making the T-shirt too, click here to navigate over to that pattern. For today’s blog post, I only put the T-shirt on Ginny to keep her looking prim and proper in her little panties!
To make today’s panties, you’ll want some Jersey fabric with elastic in it. In fact, I recommend recycling a pair of old underpants with the elastic already embedded in the fabric.
You can also cut your panties pattern out of the top of an unmatched sock for this project, but it’s best to use a sock that’s made of thin jersey fabric.
Today’s underpants pattern will fit these dolls*:
- Skipper dolls
- Disney’s 10 inch Moana dolls
- Creatable World dolls
- vintage Vogue Ginny 8 inch (20 cm) dolls
- 6 inch American Girl mini dolls

Are you wishing you had an underpants pattern for a little bit bigger doll? Re-sizing a pattern is one of the things my paid course teaches you: “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns.” So please consider signing up for my paid course, if that sounds interesting to you.
