“Love this pattern. Easy to follow instructions with great pictures. So many options with length and coordinating fabrics. My granddaughter loves all the choices and mix and matches.”

A doll’s summer wardrobe is not complete without a pair of cool and comfy shorts, perfect to spend an afternoon digging in a sandbox. The Sandbox Shorts are a quick and easy project and can be made up in a wide variety of fabrics, with or without working pockets. A staple for your doll’s summer wardrobe, the Sandbox Shorts is a pattern you will turn to again and again to create a whole wardrobe of shorts for your dolls. Pair it with the Popsicle Top (PDF pattern also available) for a perfect summer outfit!

This simple design lets you mix and match fabrics and trims for a new look each time. Choose your leg style: Classic, longer Bermuda, or a trendy Wide leg and add matching or contrasting pockets. With a flat front and back elastic waistband, the Sandbox Shorts are easy for little hands to dress and to sew! This pattern is a perfect starter pattern for girls that want to learn to sew for their dolls, or for more experienced seamstresses to make a basic doll wardrobe with lots of options.

This classic but simple pair of shorts is very easily made from a quarter yard of fabric (quilter's fat quarters work great!) in a woven cotton or other lightweight fabric. Mix and match your fabrics and trims for unlimited design options.

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

This PDF pattern was specifically designed and tested on 18 inch dolls such as American Girl ®. My dolls have a waist measurement average of 10 1/2 inches. Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them.
