Doll clothes are perfect training ground for beginner sewists. The Capri pants sewing pattern has all the charm and class of a fifties movie. With faux pockets and elasticated back waist, it’s a super quick sew. The Capri pants look just like the girl’s version but they are much easier to sew and truly a fun project. Your girl will love having the same outfit for her doll and you get an enjoyable afternoon in your happy place. If you want to sew both jacket and our gorgeous Capri pants, they come as a bundle, too.
The instructions are supported by a step-by-step and easy-to-follow video tutorial, exclusively filmed for the doll’s collection. Just follow a long and enjoy some ‘me and my sewing machine‘ time.
All the videos for the doll collection are available for free on YouTube and at the Sewing Academy, so you can have a look before you purchase the pattern. Watch the main video tutorial now by scrolling down to the video section and enjoy.

Medium weight fabrics such as sateen, denim and linen. I added some of the fabrics I used for the vintage collection and the doll’s collection to my Amazon Influencer Shop. You can also check out the fabrics by Modes4U, a lovely shop we support. They are reasonably priced and shipping is about 10 days. Well worth waiting for, especially if you order one of their free shipping bundles.
