It’s time to play! Whether she’s going to the playground, on a picnic, or heading back to school, she will be able to do everything she wants to do in her fun, loose fitting Playground Pants! Mix and match prints and solids to create your own unique pants. With or without working pockets, these pants are easy to sew and fun to make! Make them from flannel for a cute Christmas or other holiday look! This pattern is also ideal to make cargo style pants for boy dolls!

Skill level: Easy

These comfy play pants are easily made from 1/3 yard of cotton fabric or lightweight denim and 11 inches of 3/8 inch elastic. (You can also use a fat quarter!). Mix and match your fabrics to create a different look each time. The elastic waistband makes these pants easy for little hands to dress their dolls and the easy construction is perfect for even younger seamstresses to learn to sew.

Your instant download file will include full color photos, full sized pattern pieces and directions. Just print and sew!

This pattern was specifically designed and tested on 18 inch soft bodied dolls such as American Girl®. Not all dolls, even of the same brand, are exactly the same size. Be sure to measure your Playground Pants on your own doll as you go along to ensure a perfect fit. My dolls have a waist measurement average of 10 ½ inches.

Great pattern, easy to follow directions. Love the different options, especially the pockets on the side. I've made several outfits using Oh Sew Kat Patterns and the Patterns are very well written with pictures that make it easy to follow.
