#1132 Kids & Teens Shorts

Let’s get ready for Summer fun or just every day play. Shorts for kids or teens don’t take much time to make and you can sew up a pair with about a yard of fabric, thread and a strip of elastic or drawcord. For inspiration, here’s a pair from our student and friend Barbara Mc. It has fun pockets because you never know when you have some toys or cards to stash. Don’t forget these pants are great for pajamas too! They are very loose fitting. Fabric from PFI Supply.

Download the pattern here. The pattern is tiled so you can print its nine pages on 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper then match the letters to tape it together. Be sure to print at 100% scale.
