Beach Bum Bermudas

I love sewing kids’ clothing – they don’t use much fabric and they’re small so they finish up quickly.

These little Beach Bum Bermuda shorts (another pattern from this great pattern shop) used only 1/2 yard of fabric (with lots left over) and took me just an hour or two to put together.

They have a mock fly so they look really professional without the hassle of actually sewing in a zipper.

They have little flaps on the back (without an actual pocket, whew!) that are so cute and very easy to put together.

I love this pattern because the shorts are really easy to make but turn out looking really professional with two rows of top stitching around the seams, a mock fly, pocket flaps, belt loops, and true flat front pockets.

My favorite thing about the pattern is the instructions for using buttonhole elastic in the waist – my skinny little boy always needs a little cinching in the waist.

This was my first ever attempt at a buttonhole elastic waistband, and this pattern made it so easy!

Next on my list of Peek-a-Boo Patterns to try? Winter PJs. So cute!
