Cargo Short sewing pattern for BOYS

The Classically Cool Cargo Shorts pattern will be your go-to shorts pattern for your little boy. With their cargo pockets, faux fly, slanted front pockets, elastic waist and pocket flap button detail, these shorts are sure to be a staple in your son's wardrobe. Give these shorts an extra preppy look by using a longer hem. The Classically Cool Cargo Shorts sew together easily and never go out of style! Think of how cute they will be in a cotton, gingham, seersucker or even linen fabric for the warm months. Then use a khaki or navy corduroy for the cooler months and your little boy's wardrobe is complete for all seasons. You can use this pattern to make shorts without pockets, too!
