I make so many clothes for my daughter, sometimes I think that my son feels left out. Every time I make him something he is so proud. He tells everyone, "my mom made this for me." It really is so sweet. I recently saw some seersucker on the clearance isle of Joann's and decided to take advantage of a good deal. I bought some in both blue and green strips and made a few easy pairs of shorts for Jack.
Shorts are really easy. I just used a pair of shorts that he currently likes to draft a pattern. There is a great pattern on MADE if you don't have a pair to go off of. The first pair are just basic elastic waist shorts. But the 2nd pair I changed it up a bit. Here is what I did:
Instead of making an elastic waist I created a draw string waist. Begin by folding the top of the shorts down (shorts should be insideout) about 1/2 inch. Press.
He loves them, lived in them for 3 days. A classic look.
