Your baby doll's wardrobe is not complete without a pair of cool and comfy shorts, perfect to spend an afternoon digging in a sandbox, whether she's at the playground or at school. The Sandbox Shorts are a quick and easy project and can be made up in a wide variety of fabrics, with or without working pockets. A staple for your doll’s summer wardrobe, pair it with the Popsicle Top for a perfect summer outfit! Make Sandbox Shorts for your boy dolls too!
This simple design lets you mix and match fabrics and trims for a new look each time. Choose from 3 lengths (classic, bermuda, and short) and add matching or contrasting pockets. With a flat front and back elastic waistband, the Sandbox Shorts are easy for little hands to dress and to sew! This pattern is a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options.
This classic but simple pair of shorts is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter's fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and trims for unlimited design options.
This PDF pattern was specifically designed and tested on 15 inch baby dolls such as Bitty Baby® and Bitty Twins® by American Girl ®. My dolls have a waist measurements between 11-12 inches. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them. This pattern will fit a wide range of dolls due to the back elastic waistband.
This pattern is available in four great sizes: 18" dolls such as American Girl®, Disney® Animators', 14.5" dolls such as WellieWishers™, and 15” baby dolls such as Bitty Baby®.
Recommended Fabrics: quilter's cotton, lightweight cotton, eyelet, seersucker etc.
