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 2 pattern options to accommodate normal stretch fabrics or those that stretch even more! Also included are 2 methods for adding the elastic, either an exposed elastic or a hidden one.
The pattern is designed to fit 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™, but you can also find this pattern at Pixie Faire for 18" dolls such as American Girl®.
Recommended Fabrics: Light weight knitted and stretch fabrics. Stretch lace, dance mesh, nylon lycra.

Excellent pattern. So easy to make and perfect fit!
Bought these, used girl tights and the tighter of the 2 pattern options, and they fit great first try. Sewing stretch fabrics makes me nervous, but these went together SUPER easily. I'm excited to try some different fabrics. Tip: If your machine tries to eat thin fabric when starting your stitches, try sticking some paper under it to get started. Then tear the paper away.
Liked the pattern and it fits WelliWisher and the new Battat Glitter Girls well, I used a bamboo/Lycra knit and it’s really stretchy. Shortened the legs 1/2” to compensate. Would like to see waist using holdover elastic added
