I've made this pattern a few times now.....tends to run a bit snug on my older dolls.....I need to remember to use old jeans that are very thin or have some stretch to them next time....but they come out really cute!
Found the pattern very straight forward. Made them for a BOY doll and as I did not have it on hand for fitting and after reading over the comments; opted to tweak the width of the legs slightly so they would go easily over the foot (total ½") as the fabric I used was that from an old pair of jeans that appeared, 'not' to have much stretch plus I chose to cut the waistband on the bias with additional allowance in length and added it on last to ensure it would fit. To conclude; since they were for a BOY doll and the fabric had a worn look to begin with, I distressed them even more by using the method of 'fabric shredding' positioned at about the knee(s), used a deep gold colour top-stitching thread and added faux rivets (iron-on ones) where they would be located on real jeans. All in all they turned out pretty cute yet still looked boyish if I don't say so myself.
Fit is perfect. Love them .
I loved this pattern. The pattern was well written with a lot of pictures. If you follow the instruction carefully you will end up with a perfect pair of pants. Be sure to use a very stretchy fabric. I used a pair of my own old jeans. Will definetly make more.
These jeans fit well and have great detailing. Easy to follow instructions.
