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