Whip up a pair of cute capri-length pants for your 14.5-inch friend!
Suitable for most lightweight woven fabrics, these pants feature real front pockets and an elasticized back opening for easy dressing. Fold-over elastic (FOE) is used to finish the pocket edges and leg hems for extra contrast and a nice clean, finished look. Topstitching detail adds realism and slim-fitting legs add a trendy touch.
This downloadable PDF project goes together quickly and is suitable for most confident beginner-level sewists. Also available sized for 18-inch dolls such as American Girl™.
