As I have mentioned previously, having a child who is quite slim means I can’t just rock off to the shops and buy him new shorts and trousers.
This Summer, I have been trying out the Kid Shorts pattern from MADE. This comes in sizes 12months to 10years.
This is a super easy pattern to put together, and the website has loads of excellent tutorials for changing them – add pockets, flat fronts, piping, bias bound racer style, knee length boardie or shorter ‘girl’ style.
I have made these in various sizes, with and without pockets. I have also successfully turned it into a one piece pattern, so as not to break up a large scale print.
