Introducing PATTERN 101: MULTI SIZE GYM SHORTS FOR 18 INCH, 16 INCH and 14 1/2 INCH DOLLS, the FIRST pattern in our new "Pearls" by Lee & Pearl™ line.

Pearls are patterns for people who want to learn new sewing skills — just one at a time, on a limited project, and with a well-designed reward after each lesson.

Each Pearl will feature ONE item, with a limited number of steps, detailed material and tool descriptions, and only one or two techniques that might be unfamiliar to beginner sewers. Here's where you'll learn those new techniques — because you are ready to take your skills to the next level. You just don't want to do it all at once.

Of course, you don't have to be a beginner or sewing student to enjoy our Pearls. As time- and budget-friendly patterns for doll wardrobe basics, we know that they will be especially welcome for busy parents and craft fair sellers.

Got an hour to spare? Make yourself a perfect Pearl!

PATTERN 101: GYM SHORTS FOR 18 INCH, 16 INCH and 14 1/2 INCH DOLLS is rated EASY.

These relaxed fit, unisex gym shorts are easy-to-make and easy-to-wear. They'll slip right on your doll — thanks to the elastic waist — and stay in place through all kinds of active play. Try them as casual summer shorts, workout or dance practice shorts, running shorts, or even pajama bottom shorts!

In this pattern, you will learn how to sew comfortably on mildly stretchy cotton jersey material — and you'll learn the same elastic waistband insertion technique that the sportswear and activewear pros use.

NOTE: Because of the small size, you will have to be more careful with the waistband insertion on the 14 1/2 inch size than on the larger 16 inch or 18 inch sizes.

We'll walk you through every step, help you with material selection, introduce you to necessary tools, and even suggest a few optional items that can make your sewing experience easier — and your results more professional.

As always, Lee & Pearl's photo-illustrated directions and computer-drafted, guaranteed-to-fit-together pattern pieces make every step as easy as possible.

You do not need a serger to complete this pattern. Directions are included for standard home sewing machines with straight stitch and zig zag stitch capability.

These patterns were developed to fit 18" Mattel-era American Girl® dolls, 16" A Girl for All Time® dolls and 14 1/2" Wellie Wisher™ dolls, Battat Glitter Girl dolls and Play Zone Style Girl dolls. These patterns may fit differently on different dolls.

MATERIALS

1/6 yard soft knit fabric

1/3 yard 1/4" knit elastic (do not use braided elastic)

Matching thread

NOTE: This garment is easiest to make using a fairly stable, NON SPANDEX knit, such as cotton or cotton/poly jersey or brushed jersey.

You can also cut the pieces from a store-bought or repurposed human-size T-shirt, and we've included optional directions for using existing T-shirt hems.

***

Along with their GYM SHORTS, the dolls in our photos are wearing outfits that include items from L&P Pattern 1001: UNISEX T-SHIRTS (https://www.etsy.com/listing/634731331/lp-1001-unisex-t-shirts-pattern-for-18), L&P Pattern 1051: Ballet Basics LEOTARD, Unitard and One-Piece Swimsuit (https://www.etsy.com/listing/586803774/lp-1051-ballet-basics-leotard-unitard) and L&P Pattern 1075: BALLET SLIPPERS (https://www.etsy.com/listing/600056805/lp-1075-ballet-slippers-pattern-for-18).

Currently, that's Pattern #1025: She Blinded Me with Science Unisex Lab Coat (or Unlined Coat) and Safety Goggles for Dolls. This is a multi-size release, which contains patterns drafted for 18” dolls, 16” dolls and 14 1/2” dolls — because we think every child, and every doll, should know the thrill of launching a chemical reaction or spotting a single-cell organism in a drop of pond water!
