Free & Easy Pattern & Tutorial for an 18" American Girl Doll's Capri Pants


This pattern has been a little delayed in coming because I have been seriously nesting!  Cleaning, organizing, donating in a fury.  I just HAD to do it, and considering how rarely I enjoy cleaning instead of doing it because I need to, I thought I better just go with it.  I plan on finishing up my craft-room/dining room cleaning and organizing today and begin painting Blythe's room towards the end of this week.  Have any of you nested in a serious way before?  This is intense!  

I am taking a break this morning to put up this overdue post for y'all.  It's fast, quick and easy--my favorite kind of pattern!  

It is Part 3 of a 3 part pattern & tutorials mini series for a complete 18 inch doll outfit.

Part 1 is the reversible dress pattern and tutorial.
Part 2 is the embroidery tutorial to embellish the dress.
Part 3 is the capris pattern and tutorial.

Here is the pattern.  You can click on it and print it at 100% or go to the PDF.
Materials:
Left over fabric from the dress or 1/4 yard fabric
8" of 1/4" Elastic
Thread
Optional: Ric-Rac

*Before I began with the tutorial, I seamed the bottom edges up on each piece and put ric-rac on it.*
