Your little friend will be ready for whatever warm weather fun comes her way with this versatile PDF capri pants pattern. At full length, these pants hit at mid-calf, but are designed to be rolled up to whatever length you prefer, revealing the contrasting lining underneath.
Other features include optional front and back patch pockets, which may be sewn from matching or contrasting fabric for a variety of looks. The pockets are lined, adding additional detail, as is the waistband casing. An elasticized waist allows for easy pull-on dressing, while front eyelets and a mock tied drawstring add a touch of realism to the look.
Designed as part of the Summer Camp Collection by Matilda’s Closet, these pants complement the Mock Button-Front Shirt and Bucket Hat. Stitch up the entire outfit, then add the coordinating Convertible Bunk Bed pattern by AptOne8, and your little friend will be all set for summer camp!

My granddaughter requested shorts for summer, so I found this pattern and thought it would be nice to have shorts and capris. This pattern was fun and easy to follow. Both styles made up cute and I loved the tie belt that set them off.
Easy pattern and great design. I adapted the pattern to skip the string. I’ve made these twice with great success.
I like these pants a lot. This pattern wasn't the easiest one I have seen, but it was very workable for me in the end. I am not a new sewer and thus, I was able to figure things out, like the lining of the legs. My only complaint is that the seam finish on the cuff isn't pretty. I will try these again and try to finish it to look more smooth on the seam. The pockets make the entire outfit. They are so adorable and functional too (if you're a doll.) I didn't have the materials for the string in front and so, I finished the waist with just elastic. I would like if the pattern offered instructions for how to finish it without the tie, but I was able to figure it out.
I made this pattern in a lightweight denim with red, white, and blue tiny plaid linings. The topstitching came out well. I then made a matching plaid top that ties at the waist to go with it. A really cute outfit!
The pattern was very easy to follow, as usual the instructions were clear and they turned out so cute. Thank you for your wonderful patterns. I have some very happy children in my life thanks to all the clothes I can make for their dolls!
