I just could not help myself - we just had to have a cool pair of coordinating shorts to go with our new shirt!
Anyway, I used my go-to shorts pattern - omitted the front pockets, added a side pocket, then digitized a graffiti type font and embroidered "Dr. Seuss" down the left leg. Cute, no?
Here's the final review for those who are interested:
Pattern Description -
Pattern Sizing - 1/2 -4. I made a size 2. Jake is 27 months old, but he's in the 90 percentiles.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, taking into the account the changes I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Really like the fit. No dislikes.
Fabric Used: Left over poly microfiber from DH's board shorts.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Omitted front pockets, added patch side pocket. No decorative top stitching. Added embroidery down the left leg by digitizing a graffiti type font.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
We have been a little Dr. Seuss crazy around here! This is my go-to pattern right now for sewing separate for our lil' man. After making the button down shirt, we just had to have some cool looking shorts to go with it.
Here are a couple of shots, not in action:
