My daughters waist size! The elastic is great but the shorts are skin tight on my daughter. Do you have more information on hip sizing and ease on the pattern so that the shorts look more like the ones that you have made for your kids? I look forward to your reply. Hi Dana, I am looking forward to hearing from you regarding the shorts fit. I want to make another pair for my daughter. I really had to search for the correct seam allowance I was meant to use and eventually found that mentioned on one of your tutorials.
Please help me work out the size shorts I should be cutting out! I want to make her some PJ shorts and some Flat front shorts and she really love the scallop hem shorts! I love your site, it has some amazing inspiration! I also want her to learn to sew so if things she makes do not fit her then she will lose heart! Thank you in advance for your time!
I should add that I live in south Florida so we are in 84 degrees out today. Now that Spring is on its way we will soon have them to buy. Right now I am out of options for my son. I was hoping you might be able to tell me how to size them up further. My son wears a size 8 in the waist and hips but a size 6 or 7 in the length. According to your waist chart he is WAY over. Today he is wearing Old Navy knit waistband cargo shorts in size See how I am confused?
My other twin can wear size 4 and 5. I think I would love your shorts but they will not work for my twin 5 year olds. Could you tell me how to resize or maybe help with sizing? I bought the pattern today without my children to measure. First I love this pattern so much!!! But my 11 year old son has outgrown it and my 12 year old is begging for a pair.
Will you please please please with a cherry on top extend it to a 14 or 16????? Your methodology for sewing shorts is much different than mine, lol. I sew each leg together and then put them inside one another and sew the inseam.
To each her own, I guess. That takes so much time! Anyway, I was looking for a simple shorts pattern to use in making skorts, and I can use this for years to come. She wears size 18 months usually and cloth diapers. Should I have used the basic shorts?
Perhaps the flat front is not for chubby thighs? Thanks for any advice. My first time making shorts and so far both pairs came out great! Oh, he is thin and wears underwear, if he was still a chunky guy as he was at one I would have measured him before making them, also knits are great if people need a little extra stretch because their child has chunky little legs.
I just bought the pattern and was excited to sew my son some new shorts since he is between sizes in RTW clothing. I sewed up a test pair in size 9 and they barely fit over his thighs. What fabric did you use for your boy shorts in the video?
I have such a hard time buying boy fabric for my older boys that does not make the clothing i make them look super homemade and homely looking. Made my third pair of shorts yesterday and they came out great! I bought the pattern a year ago, and cannot find the download. I used the size 10 and need the 7. I cannot seem to find the download. How do I re-download the pattern. Thanks for your help. Dana, You are a gem. The shorts tutorial are absolutely great. You made sewing so easy and alive.
I can wait to make these shorts and pants for my grandson. Thanks for the great pattern and detailed tutorial, I managed to whip up a pair of shorts during nap time. It is definitely the best pattern I bought to date. And the instructions for all the various styles are here on my site: Short shorts — create. LOVE the shorts patterns. I need larger sizes. Do you have plans to add more sizes? I just wanted to say that at first i did not see the value of buying your pattern and I know I am not the only sewer who may think this.
Especially since many of us can make our own patterns as well as purchase from local stores where we dont have to use ink and paper for a similar price. However, your patterns are extremely easy to use, once they are stored on the computer I dont have to print what I dont need nor do I have to waste sizes like I do when using a commercial bought pattern.
Thank you so much. We are sewing up kids clothes quick and fast here in Houston, neighbor. My 8-yr-old granddaughter told me not long ago that she wanted to sew something, so she and I decided to sew flat-front racer shorts for her.
We are both overjoyed with how they look. Cute as can be. Looking forward to using many more of your patterns. Hey Dana thank you for your blog I love it! I have been making quite a few of these in flat fronts and people keep sending them back to me because they are too small, is the seam allowance included?
Yes, the seam allowance is included, of course you can always add more in if you would like. If you find that the pattern runs small I have heard mixed reviews on that from customers. Some say it fits perfects, some say it runs small. Hard to fit all body types! I am a beginner and recently printed out a free pattern from pinterest and it was a FAIL, hahaha! Can I purchase pattern and come back later to print other sizes or pages or does it all need to be done the time in which purchased?
When you purchase, you are sent a link to download the pattern. Once you download it, save the pattern to your computer, then you can print the various sizes whenever you need them!
Desperately wanting to purchase your kids shorts pattern but do not have a paypal account or Ipay. Do you have alternative payment method I can use. I am from the UK and would be very grateful for your help. Yes, my shop takes credit cards also.
You can purchase the pattern here: Hi Dana, I just started sewing as a hobby and loved your videos on youtube. They are very inspiring. I recently bought the basic kid shorts pattern from your store and made a pair of shorts for my 20months old. He is on a skinnier size so I went with the 18months pattern. I also added pockets on the front based on the pattern. Now I need your advise on a couple of questions I have — 1. When cutting the pattern it says in the instruction to cut on the pattern colored line.
Should I be leaving a seam allowance while cutting or is it taken into account already? How do I increase the size now on the shorts that I already stitched? Do I need to seam rip the entire band and the side seam? They are shorter on the side seam. They fit perfectly well length -wise 3.
Should I try 2yr old pattern next time? Yes, just cut on the colored lines, you do not need to add more for seam allowance, unless you want a more roomy fit, you can always do that!
And if you want to go up a size, do it! You can always keep the elastic at their waist-size. I purchased the simple shorts pattern and made the size 2 year. I am a bit confused as it seems to be tiny. Thank you, for any clarification. Hi Lisa, Sorry for the confusion. If you find that they run too small, you can always go up a size! And just keep the elastic smaller for their waistsize. But who knows what the future holds. You can always use a pair of shorts that she currently owns to help gauge your sizing.
Or go buy something at a retail shop, and use that to help extend your pattern pieces so they fit her size. Click a tutorial button below to get started: Ready to sew shorts??
