Today’s tutorial video is a revision of an older tutorial from my website. Somehow the original bell-bottoms page got lost when I converted my system of links, back in 2019, so I decided it was time to update the tutorial video, along with converting the bell bottoms pants pattern to PDF.
I got my rainbow-stripe fabric and my black and white striped fabric from the $1.99 fat quarters sales at JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts, but it has been a while ago. So you may have trouble finding the exact same fabrics today.
To make today’s bell-bottom pants for Monster High dolls, I recommend using cotton fabric, 1/8 inch elastic, and in the tutorial video at the top of the page, I mention my little Fiskars clipping scissors, which are a fantastic tool for those of us who regularly sew doll clothes!
When I wrote this blog post (a few weeks ago), the little Fiskars clipping scissors were on sale, so hopefully the sale hasn’t ended when this posts.
Tomorrow I’ll add links to the patterns for making the bell-sleeved top that you see in today’s tutorial video.
Today’s pattern will fit these dolls:
- Monster High female dolls
- Ever After High female dolls
- Kuu Kuu Harajuku dolls*
- Project MC Squared dolls
*You may find your Kuu Kuu Harajuku dolls will need to wear high heels with these very long pants.
