These super adorable Bubble Shorts and culottes have a V-yoke front with pleats and functioning pockets. The pocket trim and leg bands are created using bias with a Hong Kong finish. It all comes together for a perfect bubble look. Mix up the fabrics or just use one. Pair with a t-shirt or something fancy like the Soundside Blouse.
It's easier than it looks! Culottes are made by hemming the leg openings instead of adding the band - very cute and fast.
The elastic waistband can be adjusted for the larger size dolls. These shorts are designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl® and will also fit 15” dolls such as Bitty Baby®

So cute, little on the harder side but turned out great
I found no problems with the pattern. Looks super cute on the girls.
I was lucky enough to get to test this pattern and I was surprised with how simple the shorts are to put together. The instructions are great and explain everything well and before you know it, the shorts are done! They look much more complex to make and that was a pleasant surprise. you definitely need to add these to your patterns!
