MAKING THE LOONS
A lot of patterns will not give you an actual pattern piece for pantaloons or a slip (underskirt). They will simply tell you how long and tall the piece of material should be and most will have directions or diagrams for how they should be sewn.
For loons cut a piece of material the length and width indicated in pattern.
Fold from left to right.
Sew the side about 1/4″ from edge (green marking)
Move the seam to the middle
Sew up one side close to seam, across a few stitches and back down other side (Purple marking)
Clip between the stitching making sure to clip the corners
Turn loons right side out and sew a running/gathering stitch around waist (red thread)
Put them on your doll and cinch tight. You may want to tack the sides to the doll’s body.
