you'll need :
                Measure like you are going to make long shorts for your doll. Here, a poppet has volunteered

You'll need 2 pieces cut for the pantaloons, and 2 pieces of contrast for the casing. I used pink 1.5"x8"

Hem the bottom of the legs.

place and stitch the contrast along the bottom,

 fold in half, and sew along the ( in this case) top of the casing.

 place the pants right sides together and sew 1 of the curved sides.

Stitch the casing for the waist elastic by folding down the top part of the pants far enough for the elastic.

Put in the elastic and stitch the other curved side.

now add the elastic for the legs.

 You can pin one elastic edge, or tack it with thread.

Now you can stitch the crotch seam.
Trim the threads and slip your poppet's new pantaloons on!

This has, oddly, taken hours to post.
Hopefully it makes sense, cause its after midnight, and I think I've gone blind in one eye. Not sure which one either!

I apologize for the blurryness of some pictures. It was nearly midnight when i took them, and the kitchen has terrible lighting.
