QTπ Doll Clothing Pattern Hack: Jogger Pants

Make a comfy pair of jogger pants for your 18" boy or girl doll with this clever pattern hack from Marilyn of QTπ Doll Clothing!

Giveaway Update:  Our winner is Linda who said "My favorite sport team is the Syracuse Orange basketball because I’m originally from New York and Syracuse is only 25 miles south where my mother lives."  Thanks to everyone who entered!

Follow along as Marilyn teaches us how to use her Fast Track Suit pattern to make a pair of jogger pants.

  

(Click on the cover image to find the pattern on Pixie Faire.)

 

Let's get started..

Supplies Needed:

  • ⅓ yard suggested fabric
  • 25” of .” elastic
  • 10” of cording (optional)
  • Fray-Away® or similar product (optional)
  • Thread
  • Needle appropriate for fabric.

Suggested Fabrics: light-weight twill, light-weight, light-weight corduroy, lightweight
denim or quilting cottons.

Before we cut the fabric, we need to prepare pattern pieces. You will need the following pattern pieces: H, I and J (you will need to print 2 pattern piece I).

NOTE: You can choose to make the joggers with pattern pieces F and G for a narrow leg using the suggested fabric with a slight stretch.

FUN IDEA: If you want cropped joggers, remove 1" off the bottom of pattern pieces I and J (or F and G).

Using pocket (pattern piece H) as a guide cut one of the pant fronts (pattern piece I).

NOTE: Pattern piece H is now your pocket facing.

This is what it should look like...

Trace pocket (pattern piece H) onto the second pant front (pattern piece I).

Cut and keep the pocket piece and discard the rest.

NOTE: This is now your pocket lining.

Finished pattern pieces. Cut 2 of each.

Cut following pieces:

Waistband- 14” x 2”

Leg cuffs- 7” x 1 3/4” (cut 2)

These pieces will be used instead of the ribbing or you can use the ribbing.

TIP: Cutting the waistband on the bias will help the waistband sit better.

With RIGHT sides together pin pocket facing (pattern piece H) to front of pants. Stitch with a 1/4” seam.

Stitch with a 1/4" seam.

Turn facing to the inside of the pants.

Top stitch the edge of the pocket.

With RIGHT sides together place pocket lining on pocket facing.

Stitch pocket with a .1/4” seam.

Zigzag stitch or serge pocket.

Stay stitch top of pocket to pants front inside the seam allowance.

REPEAT pockets for other side of pants.

Follow STEPS 40-44 disregarding the references to stretching the ribbing.

Your pant should look like this now.

Cut two pieces of 7” x .1/2” elastic. Mark the ends 1” either end of the elastic

Insert elastic through the cuffs, stitch at the 1” marks.

Clip elastic.

 

Follow STEPS 45-59 (reversing STEPS 45 & 46) and disregarding the references to
stretching the ribbing.
TIP: Check your waist length after the front rise is sewn. It may need to be shortened
depending on fabric choice.

NOTE: If you want to add a faux front fly after the front seam is sewn.

Your pants are now finished!

My favorite sports team is the Chicago Cubs because even though it took them over 70 years to win the world series again, they not only always work as a team but they are also a team that gives young children inspiration. They have consistently given back to the community and to the educational system within their city. They have made Chicago a very proud city this year. I am looking forward to making these pants in honor of the Chicago Cubs.
