Shorts for Boys

Another two pairs of Mud Puddle Splashers made. They really are my go to PDF pattern for boys' shorts; such a quick and easy make. I've never timed myself sewing them, but they really don't take long.

I already have the PDF pattern printed, pieced and cut out in the size I need. This saves so much time. They're a perfect fit, comfortable and most importantly, Little Mister likes them.

Much as I like making these shorts, it's time I used some different patterns. Time to sort through my pattern stash and see what's there. I tend to forget the patterns I've purchased.

Paper Patterns...

PDF Patterns...

Patterns in Books...

Make It Perfect

That's not many patterns, considering the number of girls' patterns I own. I think I might try the Going Coastal bermuda shorts next. Jenya, from While she was sleeping, has written some very positive reviews of Puperita patterns.

What's your go to shorts pattern for boys?

  1. I haven't made shorts since my boys were little, which is 20+ years ago, lol. Now you have me thinking about them even though we're heading into winter :D At about 1/2 m fabric per pair, they'd be a great stashbuster for my always-growing collection of kids prints :D

  2. Cute shorts Pam we have definitely passed short wearing weather here now!

  3. I have the Figgy pattern but haven't made it up yet. I should before my son grows out of it!
