Make trendy, fun, elegant or dance tights for your doll. These tights have a seam at the back. This helps minimize the bubbles over the bridge of the doll's foot without adding an extra dart. Use any type of knit or stretch fabric - Lycra, dance mesh, stretch lace and more. Included are two pattern options to accommodate normal stretch fabrics or those that stretch even more! Also included are two methods for adding the elastic, either an exposed elastic or a hidden one.
