Many people have asked me "what about little boys? Can we do something for little boys?" Well what about little boys? Don't get me wrong I LOVE seeing little girls in their new dresses but I also feel called to make shorts for the 'little boys in the background.' I cannot in good conscience ignore these little boys.
Let’s get started! First off you want to gather up your materials. So here is a list of what you will need to get started.
Basically I only want to have one large pattern piece rather than the usual two pieces so I pin the front and back pattern together at the side seam. Match the side seam up the best you can. As long as the top and bottom line up then you’re fine.
At this point you can use the tissue pattern OR you can trace the tissue pattern on another piece of paper OR you can trace this pattern on a piece of fabric and use that as a pattern. Fabric patterns are my favorite because you don’t have to use pins when you cut things out AND fabric patterns aren't attractive to cats. If you are making a paper or fabric pattern draw around the pattern piece with a fabric marker, and then put the tissue aside.
Take the pieces apart and you will have to legs. Fold each one in half right sides together, pin and sew the inseam.
I was going to say “let’s take a break and have a cup of tea” but we are so close to the end let’s just keep going and finish these up. All that is really left is the elastic.
