I already have 1 more yard of this delicious fabric the way and am thinking of getting a few more yards just to tuck away somewhere, so I never run out of it. You know how some fabrics just make you happy when you look at them? Well, for me, this is one of those fabrics.
For all the sewers out there, especially those who sew for little boys, this shorts pattern is Burda 9793. It comes in sizes 2-6, which is a good range of sizes! I have been searching for ages for a size 2 boys shorts pattern that wasnt just a basic elastic waisted pair with no pockets etc. I had been finding that most of the boys patterns for proper shorts tended to start at size 3 for some reason. Its a lovely little pattern, roomy but not too baggy. The pants/shorts have inset pockets, a mock fly flap and optional bum pockets, which are features I always like to add into boys shorts or pants made with printed cottons otherwise they have a tendency to look like Pyjama pants.
