  • Straight stitch

Pattern Description:

Poofypants are comfy, adjustable, practical, and adorable britches for little ones. I designed them for my own son after struggling to get store-bought pants over his bulky diapers. Babies and toddlers naturally lounge around with bent "frog legs" and well padded bums. Poofypants have a roomy front and back rise, and are cut wider across the crotch. This allows for maximum comfort, and also looks super-cute. Poofypants are designed to grow with baby. They have a stretchy elastic waistband and the cuffs allow for lenthening as those legs grow. Best of all, they are reversible, so you get two looks in one. Use fun novelty prints, or go with designer fabrics for a boutique look.

Poofypants are quick and easy to sew, and make for the perfect baby gift. Pair with a simple appliqued onesie or T-shirt to create a complete outfit that will get worn again and again.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Newborn to 18-24 months


  • 2 cuts of fabric, 1/2 yard to 3/4 each
  • 1/8 yard trim fabric

You Will Also Need:

  • 3/4" elastic
  • Basting tape or school glue stick

Excellent Love the pattern for Poofy Pants  October 16, 2012

I thought this would be a great "Stash-Buster" and it was. I made several out of flannel, one from Halloween prints and two from Christmas prints, for our annual Craft Fair. The pattern directions were very detailed and were very easy to follow. I will make these again.
