No outfit in the world of dolldom is complete without a matching panty so that's our subject today. The pattern for panties from Hannah's Closet is simple to make as are all the other pieces.

It is included in my pattern store on Craftsy @
along with  the other simple to make mix and match separates for your American Girl or other 18" dolls. Links to both Craftsy and Carolyn's Canvas Patterns are in "My other sites" block on the right.

The panties only take a few minutes to complete and 1/4 yard of any fabric of choice will make at least 3 pairs. All you need to add is 9" of 1/8"-1/4" elastic  for the waistline.

This step by step video demonstrates how quick and easy Hannah's doll panties are to make.

These panties are made from tee shirt knits-a couple of them are actually from some of my  shirts.

This pair was made in cotton to match the reversible skirt and top.  

Watch for other posts showing more ways to use Hannah's Closet patterns to create almost endless design opportunities.

These pieces are perfect beginner projects. Young designers can create to their heart's content with little supervision. I would love to see photos of your doll clothes, especially ones with the young sewist working on the project.

Happy sewing
