Your WellieWishers™ doll’s wardrobe is not complete without a pair of cool and comfy shorts, perfect to spend an afternoon digging in a sandbox, whether she’s at the playground or at school. 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, pair it with the Popsicle Top (pdf pattern also available in my etsy shop) 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.

This PDF pattern was specifically designed and tested on 14.5 inch dolls such as WellieWishers™ by American Girl ®. My dolls have a waist measurement of 6 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. This pattern will fit Hearts for Hearts dolls as well- but will look a little looser as they are smaller dolls.

Recommended Fabrics: quilter’s cotton, lightweight cotton, eyelet, seersucker etc.

Supplies Needed: 
-1/4 yard of cotton, or other lightweight fabric
-Optional contrasting scrap for pockets
-3 inches of 1/4 inch elastic
-Sewing Thread

Skill level: Easy

Do you sew? Do you want to? Does your daughter ask you to make new clothes for her dolls? Or would she like to learn herself?

This is where I was with my daughter. She wanted me to make so many things I couldn’t keep the list up! I decided it was time for her to do it herself. (9-11 years old). I created some simple patterns, based on simple designs that would teach her, step by step, how to make them herself. (But do not underestimate the power of a simple design! A new fabric, a shirt underneath, a few buttons on front, a ruffle added…you can create a whole wardrobe and lots of unique looks with just a few basic pattern pieces.)  With a few scraps of fabric, and a pattern printed on your home computer, you and your “girl” will be making her dolls into fashionistas!
