Sandbox Shorts 14.5" Doll Clothes Pattern

11 reviews   |  

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. 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.

Sandbox Shorts

I loved making the shorts. I am not very experienced with sewing so I found it a bit of a challenge with the pockets. They turned out quite nice--will have to make some more in a different color to get more practice with sewing something that small. Overall, very pleased with the pattern

Sandbox shorts

Love this pattern as I like that there is not elastic all the eay around the waist. Much easier to get on the doll.
