When football season is in full swing, your doll will love having his/her own padded football pants for a game of football, flag football, or just to wear for fun. The intermediate version can be made with a lacing panel in the front and a belt that closes with D-rings. The confident beginner can omit the belt and lacing panel to make a basic pair of football pants with or without the padding and/or ribbon trim. Have fun making pants in a variety of colors. This PDF sewing pattern by JenAshley Doll Designs is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Even though it's over, getting ready for football this fall is an ongoing project for me. Cute pattern and looks great in out teams colors.
I found the pattern instructions were easy to follow and understand until I got to the belt. The belt instructions are not very clear.
Love this pattern. Plan to make many.
I mad these pants along with the Jersey and Shoulder Pads. What a great set. The pants were the most fun of the entire set. Real, padded uniform pants. With laces and a d-ring buckle, and stripes. They are so realistic. I got so many compliments on this outfit. Easy to sew. Great instructions.
