Greetings, dear friends in Internet~Land. I got the date scheduled for surgery on my hand, and I have a little bit of time. I thought I’d get another pattern up-sized for you while I wait. I decided to work on the Wrap-Pleat Pants Pattern for third scale sized BJD fellas. I decided to include it in a three piece set inspired by Yoongi’s (Suga’s) outfit for the “Dynamite” and “Butter” portion of the Permission To Dance concert. I loved the extra long, flowy shirt and diagonally hemmed tank-top, so I added them to the pants for a loose, comfy set. When I sew these pieces, I plan on using a soft, printed fabric for the shirt that will have a gentle drape. It can also have a belt and beltloops added for extra detail. The pants will be a light poly-cotton blend, so they will lay nice and hold the pleat.
Since I’m not sewing at present, you can check out my YouTube channel (missysimaginings) for tips on sewing similar items. The main difference will be the assembly of the pants. They should actually be less work, because the pleats are not sewn into the front. Just put in the front pockets and back darts first. Next, sew the center back and center front with the fly. Then sew the side-seams. I would add the waistline facing before sewing the hems and inseam. That will pretty much complete the construction. All that’s left is to fit them to the doll, fold the sides to the front, and do the hand-work of adding snaps to hold the folded/wrapped pleats in place. I hope this will be a fun project for adding some variety to your fella’s wardrobe!
