Hip-Hugger Bell Bottoms 18" Doll Clothes

12 reviews   |  

In the late 1960s – early 1970s, Hip-Hugger Bell-Bottom pants were the height of fashion.  No fabric or color was taboo – jeans, striped linen, cotton with brightly-colored flower motifs, and even polyester pantsuits were cut as bell-bottoms. 

Flossie Potter has re-created the look for your American Girl® Doll in this EASY pdf sewing pattern.  Sixteen pages of detailed instructions with full-color photo illustrations, three pages of full-size pattern pieces, and four pages of printable instructions (to save on printer ink!) show you how to make your own fashion statement.  What's more, the pants can be created with or without the optional belt-loops* to vary your doll's wardrobe.

These pants were designed to fit American Girl® dolls. However, with a little adjustment, you may fit them to other 18" dolls.

Combine the bell-bottoms with Flossie Potter's "Woodstock Peasant Top" and the "Favorite Fringed Vest" for a whole ensemble.

*Optional belt loops not recommended with denim.  Light-weight material only.

Recommended Fabrics:  cotton, light-weight linen, light-weight denim

Supplies Needed:
-1/2 yd light-weight fabric such as cotton, linen, light-weight denim 
-1 1/2" hook-and-loop tape OR snaps
-16" kitchen string (if using optional belt loops)
-Optional decorative tape

Had a bit of trouble understanding the instructions regarding the waistband placket and belt loops. There was no explanation as to why you doing The placket and loops. The finished product is cool!

Stylishly 70's and it is coming back!1

Love this pattern. Perfect fit. Just a little confusing knowing which way the waist band goes on. Knowing which way was up would make knowing the left and right side of the waist band easier to determine. I paired it with the crop top from Bohemian Breeze pattern and love the look!

Very cute

Not too hard once I got the hang of it. Although I never could get the belt loops correct so I just gave up on them.

I loved making these. Directions were ok. The finished project was awesome. I will say the purple swirl material I used made them perfect
