Capri Pants for Barbie from $1 Fabric Headband-DIY

A while ago I made a long dress from a dollar store headband, there was a 5 1/2" long piece leftover and I thought it would make cute capri pants:) Before we get started I wanted to say, this isn't an exact pattern, it's just something fun to make for Barbie play. The pants are a little roomy up top (easier to get on) and fitted to the doll's legs at the bottom.


The headband I started with:

Fold tube of fabric inside out, arrange so seam is down the center. You'll notice that the seam doesn't lay flat, that's ok, it will be the back of the pants and actually help with the fit.
Measure down 2 1/2" from top.
Measure 1" from each side on the bottom. I added a pin to each side to try to keep each leg the same width.
Draw line from 1" mark up to 2 1/2" mark on each side

Sew 1/4" seam up both lines, cut excess fabric from the center V.
Flip top down about 1/2", sew seam but leave a 1/2 opening so you can feed elastic through hole.
Snug up the elastic and tie or sew it closed, trim loose ends, finish sewing the waistband seam closed. 

Turn inside out and dress doll.
