These jeans are made to fit the American Girl doll the same way our jeans fit us. The fabric is lightweight pinwale corduroy in bright pink or turquoise with matching top stitching on the pockets, back yoke, side seams and waistband. They have front and back working pockets and a front faux fly. There is elastic in the waist, but the fit is such that no gathers are apparent when the pants are on the doll. The back pockets have a top stitched design that could be modified if desired.
