The classic Liberty Jane® Moto Pants have been re-designed to fit an 18-inch boy doll with a looser more relaxed fit. The Boy Doll Moto Pants pattern features ‘moto’ patches on the knees with topstitching providing an extra layer of durability. The pants can also be made without the knee patch for a more traditional khakis look. Two back pocket options are included: welt pockets and patch pockets. The pants look great with either style! They have a flat front waistband and elastic waist back. This provides a smooth fit under a tee and is easy to slip on and off. Front slant pockets provide a sleek, finished look. The pockets are functional and the doll's finger slips in easily.
*Design note: This is a new pattern. The original LJ Moto Pants pattern designed to fit 18-inch girl dolls makes a slimmer fitting pant with a center back leg seam.

This was great fun and easy to sew. I used contrast thread to top stitch the knee patches and it looks brilliant. I made the baseball tee to match and the outfit looks terrific.
Love them! They are great fit.
