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®
