Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to use a sewing machine and basic hand stitching.

Pattern Description:

Make your own super cute pants for your little boy or girl with this digital pdf sewing pattern!

This classic, straight-legged pant (OR SHORTS!) is great for everyday play or for dress-up. For the boys there are big, cute hip pockets and big, pleated back pockets. For the girls there is a ruffle option for the hip pockets and adorable gathered back pockets.

The pants have a lowered front waist for a natural and comfortable fit.

Sizes included are: Child sizes 2 to 10.

If you would like a detailed sizing and materials chart, check out the blog:
(Sorry about the link... I had too many awesome photos of the pants to show you instead!)

This pattern and tutorial includes:

~ instructions to make the pants with French seams (or a serger)
~ step-by-step instructions to make these pants with clear, coloured photos
~ computer drafted, full-sized, nested pattern pieces

Seam finishes are included in this tutorial - and not just boring old zig-zag stitches - and no serger or fancy feet required :) The inside will be just as pretty as the outside... well, almost.

The pattern pieces can be printed on letter or A-4 sized paper.

This pattern is best suited for a person in the advanced/confident beginner to intermediate stage.
