Fabric: "Traffic Jam" by Allison Jane Smith
People (my sister) have been wondering why I never sew anything for boys. I have two sons, my sister has two sons. So it would be more natural to sew for boys. But I do get caught in the flowery universe of the somewhat more feminine fabrics (to be really stereotypical here...).
But finally here are some shorts for one of my boys, which he wore for his birthday party yesterday.
I called these shorts "Keep Moving", which is not the name of the fabric, although it could be, because of the motif but also, and especially, because little children are hardly ever still!
The pattern I used is the same one I used for the other pairs of shorts I made for my boys last summer. The patter for Pajama Trousers in Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing. But I cut the leg bits shorther and added two pockets on the back.
It's a very easy pattern which you can make really quickly!
