High waisted pants and shorts pattern

Nothing is more comfortable and cool than pants or shorts made of a lightweight material for your kid. High waisted wide pants and shorts are wardrobe essentials and are highly desirable during the spring and summer season.

Although they have been a total hit for several seasons now, their popularity has not waned at all. And, it’s also quite clear why this is so: they can be worn on all occasions, together with any other piece of clothing, are very lightweight and are suitable for warm spring and summer days. The loose and baggy style makes them cool and comfortable and easy for active kids to run around. The elasticated design is comfy too and allows for easy fitting and some growth without needing to sew a new pair.

You can choose any pattern or color of the fabric for the sewing of these garments. If you choose a patterned fabric that is unique or of an unusual color, it will always fit perfectly with a white blouse or t-shirt.

Wide pants with extra pleats on waist and very wide legs, narrow cuffs at the ankles, are an interesting and practical cut for a girl, no matter what the age. No zippers or buttons, the elastic waistband gives your child complete comfort.

High waisted pants or shorts, with a large floral pattern, will be the perfect piece of clothing for any baby girl. Stitching lines are diagramed right on the images so you don’t need to wonder where to stitch them. The best thing is, you don’t need a serger machine for this pattern, it can easily be made on a regular home sewing machine.

It’s very beginner-friendly because the loose unfitted design and the elasticated waist means it’s much more forgiving to sew – you don’t need to make them fit exactly to the body, so we recommend this pattern especially for those starting out sewing clothes.

With this pattern, you actually get two sewing patterns – the pants and the short, and in sizes from 1 month to 10 years. What great value! You can sew this over and over for years to come.

The sewing process was described in detail by the designer in their PDF guide. You can print out the PDF guide and can quickly make pants or shorts for your little girl in a step-by-step manner.

What’s special about sewing is that when you sew something with your hands and put your love into that piece of clothing, such an exact piece of clothing doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world, it’s completely unique. This may be your new experience, from which you might well conclude that sewing is your undiscovered love so far. So grab your High Waisted Pants and Shorts PDF pattern and join the journey.
