Styled for both boys and girls, the easy wear and stylish look of the Runaround Pants will make them a favorite for running around at playtime and snuggling up at bedtime. Choose between boardshort length, capris and full-length pants, then add the optional side stripe, curved front pockets or, on the full-length pants, side cargo pockets. Raw edges on the side stripe, pockets and hem add a touch of playfulness and a modern finish. ****** The Runaround Pants pattern is part of the Jersey Love series by Fishsticks Designs. These patterns are designed specifically for stretch cotton/spandex or cotton/lycra jerseys. (Some Jersey Love patterns can also be used with other knits, so be sure to check the fabric recommendations.) Many of the edges are left raw to take advantage of the way that jerseys curl up after washing and drying. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 12mth to 12 yr

Supplies Needed

  • Cotton or cotton blend jerseys are recommended for the best results. (Cotton or cotton blend interlocks will work for the legs and pockets, but they will not curl on the edges.)
  • Cotton/spandex or cotton/lycra jersey or rib knit for waistband (Cotton knits without spandex or lycra will not have the recovery to work properly in the waistband.)
  • 12mths to 3T Curved & short pockets: 10? Long pockets: 10? Pants - stripe & waistband: 3/4 yard Pants - body: 3/4 yard Capris - stripe & waistband: 1/2 yard Capris - body: 5/8 yard Shorts - stripe & waistband: 1/2 yard Shorts - body: 1/2 yard

Fishsticks Designs offers sewing patterns for unique and modern clothing that is always practical for you and your family. Fishsticks Designs was born from my desire to not only sew clothing for my own children but also to teach other moms (and grandmas, and aunts, and maybe even a few dads) to do the same. Each of my patterns includes step-by-step instructions with words and pictures so that you can read and see what to do next. It's almost like sitting in my sewing room with me. It's at least the closest that I can get without you stopping by for a visit. I'm blessed to be mom to six children, two girls and four boys. Because my youngest three are boys and they're the ones I sew for the most, I tend to focus my designing on patterns that work great for boys. I also enjoy creating patterns with an incredible amount of versatility so that you can become comfortable with a pattern and go back to it again and again without your end products looking exactly the same. I want you to be able to build a whole wardrobe for your child from just a few patterns. I begin each pattern with a hand-drawn design and work to get the fit just right for my little ones. Then I transfer my hand-drawn design the computer and create a digital design which is then graded up and down to each of the sizes included with the pattern. Once the pattern is ready, I call on my skilled testers to test out the pattern, instructions and sizing. My end goal is to give you a great-fitting, easy-to-follow pattern each time!
