Make trendy, fun, elegant or dance tights for your doll. These tights have a seam at the back. This helps minimize the bubbles over the bridge of the doll's foot without adding an extra dart. Use any type of knit or stretch fabric - Lycra, dance mesh, stretch lace and more. Included are 2 pattern options to accommodate normal stretch fabrics or those that stretch even more! Also included are 2 methods for adding the elastic, either an exposed elastic or a hidden one.
The pattern is designed to fit 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™, but you can also find this pattern at Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
Recommended Fabrics: Light weight knitted and stretch fabrics. Stretch lace, dance mesh, nylon lycra.

This pattern is easy to sew and the tights fit perfectly. I will definitely use it often.
Very easy to make and they look gorgeous on her....thanks again!
So easy to make and fit like a glove. Now my dolls can finally have some tights to wear under their dresses.
Found the tights so easy to make and they fit so well. I think it took me longer to decide what fabric to use than it did to sew it.
