FINALLY! I solved the 18 inch doll pant hanger dilemma! In my previous post I showed you how I created the doll closets with dividers. Today is PART 2 in my ‘getting organized series.’ Now to get all those doll clothes hung up neatly! American girl does make a very good pant hanger, but you can only get it if you purchase a pair of pants or a skirt from one of their stores. SO DISAPPOINTING! I have sent so many requests asking AG to sell these hangers in bulk like they do their shirt hangers …and nothing! I think their marketing team needs to wake up and listen to customer requests!! I chose the AG shirt hanger because I like the minimal vertical space it takes up in the doll closet; the hook is smaller.
AG does make a Starry Clip Hanger which is AWFUL! The clip hanger is wide and takes up a lot of horizontal space in the doll closet. This hanger doesn’t open that much; you really have to shimmy your doll clothes into it. AND the springs are very weak…more than half of these hangers purchased broke within the first 2 uses…and my daughters and I are very gentle with them. Hands down, not worth the money.
Pant Hanger Template printable.
- To create a pant hanger of your own, print out the pant hanger adapter pdf above.
- Trace your template onto poster paper or heavy weight cardstock paper (I used 110 lb).
- Cut out then fold in half. I used a rule to get a crisp folded crease.
- Slip through the opening in the AG hanger and staple closed.
Now you have a sturdy pant and skirt hanger.
If you have a skirt that can’t be slide under a shirt, as in Molly’s Miss Victory Costume, you can simply fold the template in half and staple (without placing through hanger). Then hole punch in the top center and place a rubber band or ribbon through and hang over the shirt hanger hook.
This template can easily be narrowed or widened if needed.
