Inspired By Pinterest- American Girl 18" Doll Tights from a Ladies Sock Tutorial

So I've seen this idea around for awhile on Pinterest and have been very curious to try it. I do like the flexibility it gives you if you want something unique, as there are 100s of printed socks out there, and it could be quite fun picking out a print.

Also if you are in a crunch and need tights for a gift and don't have time to order online, you can quickly make your own. This is a super fast easy sew. and is a great option to have. Happy Sewing !

Supplies Needed:

One Knee High Woman's Sock (stretchy is good)
Matching Thread
Scissors
Pins
Sewing Machine

STEP ONE:
Place sock on dolls body.
Pin at crotch.
Pin at feet.


STEP TWO:
Remove from doll. 
Cut below pin at feet section.



STEP THREE:
Cut up the side of sock to pin, as shown below.
Repeat on other side.


STEP FOUR:
Open to create legs.
Turn to wrong side.


STEP FIVE:
Pin all around and stitch.
Turn right side out.


Voila ! Done.



Here is Kit showing off her new tights :)
