As I was sewing this, I realized that my pattern for the shorts would not fit the (pardon my crude language) "butt" of my doll. To fix this little giggle, Please adjust the top of your shorts pattern to 4.25 inches. This will insure a perfect fit!1
In this step, we will be attaching the waistband pieces to the bodice. I reccomend sewing the 2 waistband pieces together first, and then pinning the fabrics so that the seams match. Once you have pinned the segments, sewin a straight line all the way around, stopping when you reach the farthest reaches, as we must leave a place for our fastening (velcro).
The end result should look like this:
Step 2:Next, we will begin to construct the shorts. Take one of your newly refurbished back pieces, and an opposite facing piece. Sew the long side seam (the side without the crotch piece).
