Pattern Description:

With the AJ Bottoms Pattern as your guide, you'll have a complete wardrobe of bottoms for your little girl or boy in no time at all!
This pattern is designed with a slight dip in the front and a slightly raised back waist to provide excellent coverage over cloth diapers or disposable without excess bulk. In sizes 6 months to 4T, patterns are included for pants, shorts and bloomers. Pants, shorts and bloomers can be sewn with knit fabrics, a combination of knit and woven fabrics or polyester fleece/wool interlock fabrics. In the toddler sizes, cut lines are included for both traditional rise for little ones in undies and higher rise lines for toddlers in diapers.
