I just drew my pattern from already existing shorts he had and went from there. That takes some confidence and I am still nervous when I sew that way, luckily these worked out! :) Here are the two pattern pieces you need to make shorts. I would say these are a 12-18 month size. The shorts I used as a pattern were an 18 month Carter's pair, but I took in the waist since I have a skinny guy.
The blue shorts were first and their waist is a bit small and I decided the were a tad to short. With the khaki pair I added a 1/2 to 1" in the elastic for the waist and added a bit to the length. I do like them more but both pairs are wearable and cute.
I added a size tag very similar to the ones that No big dill has a tutorial for. I'm just loving having a size tag, I'll continue for sure!
One more picture! Here they are with the envelope tee from Growing up Sew Liberated, I reviewed it here. And after having him wear it today I decided it does fit, I just want to tweak the neck next time.
I can't believe he is almost one! Where has the year gone? Happy Friday!
