This is the 4th shorts I sewed for my kids and it will be the last one until I sew this boy shorts pattern again from my old blouse. Though, I still have some new ideas in making them a little different with some re-styling from the basic pattern, but, I have to make a temporary halt and proceed with my other crafts. Well, it won’t be too long for me to sew them again 🙂
This cargo pocket boy shorts has the same basic sewing pattern of my recent published toddler jersey shorts (for 3 year old) and kid shorts (for 6 – 8 year old), [2016 update] Pre-teenager shorts, the different is… just add a cargo pocket on it. Since this boy shorts is using fabric recycled from my old long sleeve blouse, I utilized one of the sleeve’s cuffs to sew the cargo pocket. It is a straight corners cuff and not the normal rounded corner cuff, you can adapt this method for the rounded type just that the height and the corner will look different.
