One Piece Pants - Elementary Sized 4 - 8

One Piece Pants - Elementary Sized 4 - 8

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use scissors without injury

Pattern Description:

Just because my kids got bigger didn't mean they still didn't need pants for Halloween. Or pants with rockets on them. Or baseball pants (stripe up the side optional). Or pajamas! And more pajamas!

I have been making these pants for years, and continue to refine the pattern to make it as easy as humanly possible. Definitely for beginners and their friends. As indicated in the photos, these pants have sized up and keep going strong (even if they aren't sizes 4 through 8 anymore).

All sizes on one pattern sheet (14 pages total, 12 of them pattern), determine appropriate size by hip measurement. And I don't think the snacks are optional.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Kids sizes 4 through 8 (hip 20-28")


  • Fabric approx. 2 yds 44/45" wide
  • Sewing machine
  • Pins
  • Snacks (optional)
  • Plastic or metal bodkin or the like for pulling elastic

You Will Also Need:

  • Abt 25" elastic 3/4" wide
