A doll’s wardrobe is not complete without a pair of cool and comfy shorts, perfect to spend an afternoon digging in a sandbox. 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, the Sandbox Shorts is a pattern you will turn to again and again to create a whole wardrobe of shorts for your dolls. Pair it with the Popsicle Top for a perfect summer outfit!

This simple design lets you mix and match fabrics and trims for a new look each time. Choose your leg style: Classic, longer Bermuda, or a trendy Wide leg and add matching or contrasting pockets.

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.

Sandbox Shorts for Wellie Wishers

Easy to follow directions. Shorts are easy to make in a short time.


Fun Pattern

These shorts were easy and fun to make. The instructions are clear and easy to follow with plenty of pictures. You can change the look by changing fabrics for the pockets and/or shorts or by putting the pockets on the inside instead of the out side of the shorts. They fit well with no adjustments. They go together fast so your doll can have more than one pair.


Great pattern!

I love the design of this shorts pattern, which pairs nicely with the Popsicle Top pattern, also by Oh Sew Kat. Great, clear directions and photos make putting it together an easy-to-follow task. Creative choice abounds with the ability to mix and match patterns, and the different pant lengths make it a versatile pattern as well. Your Wellie will love her new shorts!


Different lengths, different trims or plain, you pick!

I was happy to be a tester for this pattern. I love how the front is done with one smooth piece and the back is gathered. It's shown off very nicely if you use the Popsicle Top pattern also by Oh Sew Kat. Perfect fit, quick and easy!

Relaxing Play Shorts

I love this pattern! I personally was excited when I found out Oh Sew Kat was re sizing this pattern from her AG size. The fit is great for the Wellie Wisher Dolls. The added working pocket is always great to have. My daughters love that. easy to follow Directions and with the pictures, a great pattern for a beginner seamstress. This is one pattern I will be using over and over.
