Baby Shorts sewing pattern (Newborn-5/6yrs)


This is a pdf sewing pattern and tutorial for a great pair of Baby Shorts that actually come in baby sizes from newborns all the way up to children’s sizes 5-6 years.

The designer Vagabond Stitch has created this pattern for use with knit fabrics.

The designer describes these pants as such a quick sew and a must-have for summer!

They are knee-length and are roomy enough to be worn over diapers. They are even designed to be worn when your baby/toddler wants to do all sorts of exercises and play games.

This pattern has a step-by-step tutorial with a lot of pictures which makes this pattern very beginner-friendly. You can sew the shorts either on an overlock machine – serger or on a sewing machine. A seam allowance is included.
