Drawstring Shorts 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

10 reviews   |  

These darling Drawstring Shorts make just the right fashion statement for your 18 inch fashionista doll. Dress them up with a stylish jacket for a dinner out with friends or pair them with a cute tee and Janes shoes for a fun day in the park. These shorts feature front pleats, slant pockets and a functioning drawstring laced through center front buttonhole openings which results in a paper bag style waist when tied. Our cover example shows the option of using a contrast waistband and pocket, which is a fun look! The shorts also look great all in one fabric!

The design looks best when a fabric with soft drape is used. A woven fabric is best, but not a stiff quilting cotton. 

The PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18 inch soft bodied dolls such as American Girl®. It also fits the Karito Kids Doll (pictured on the example image bottom right).

Suggested fabrics include lightweight cottons, rayons, linens, and a variety of lightweight knits. 

Supplies Needed: 
-1/4 yard lightweight fabric
-Matching thread

Easy to use pattern, clear instructions, fits well. My doll is on the larger side, so added 1/4" to the top of shorts front and back. I thought the pattern a more modern style of a lower rise and wasnt sure they would be big enough. A cute pattern. Really happy with how they turned out.

Cute and quick!!!

I cut out and sewed a pair in just half an hour! I think I will make some that have ribbon ties instead of fabric, but they look cute either way. I used a lightweight knit that had some drape, and that made the shorts hang perfectly. A great way to use up some fabric and to make a quick and easy outfit that has plenty of cool details.
