Pattern Details

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. She also needs a few pairs to be ready to head back to 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, 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 in my 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. 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 16 inch dolls made by Disney(r) (Specifically, the Animator Series(r).) Please measure and test the fit on your own doll as there are many princess dolls on the market and it may not fit the same on all of them. Would you like a free bonus pattern?

Oh Sew Kat! Fashion Trends for Dolls and their Friends Oh Sew Kat! is the place to find trendy fashions and sewing patterns for your American Girl and similar sized 18" dolls. I learned to sew as a child, and like many girls, I learned to sew with doll clothes. The discovery of American Girl when my daughter was born, brought a whole new meaning to doll sewing, designing, and collecting. My daughter and I have shared many wonderful memories playing with and creating things for her dolls. I always enjoyed the days we spent together sewing doll clothes, and I hope some of you get a chance to do that too. Join the Oh Sew Kat Chat! Email list at to hear of new releases and other news!
