Challenging--WORTH IT!

This was probably the most challenging doll pattern I've ever used in my many years of making doll clothes--that's why I chose it! That, and because this are simply the CUTEST shorts I've ever seen! The directions were excellent--very detailed. If you love a challenge, this is a grreat pattern to try. The FLY was the most difficult part for me, but I did it. I used a lightweight premium cotton, which was very easy to work with. The end result was worth it!

Cute shorts!

I made these using a twill fabric. I used the large sized pattern but where they do fit my newer dolls, they are a tight squeeze on my larger bodied dolls. I recommend using a lighter weight fabric with a bit more stretch. There are quite a few steps to this pattern, but the end result is well worth it. I also found that because my fabric was thicker, it was quite difficult to sew the belt loops on. I ended up having to stitch them on by hand. All in all, I love these shorts. I am definitely going to be making them again.

Joy Shorts

These shorts are awesome! They have a working front fly, working pockets, and even belt loops and instructions on how to make a belt! I used lace instead of a ruffle and the shorts turned out just as beautiful. :)
