    A lovely sew!

    I have made four pairs of these shorts now, three for 6 yr olds and one for a 2 yr old. The first three were from recycled, 100% cotton trousers of mine. The latest one is from a remnant of linen. Very easy to make but look so relaxed and stylish. Definitely recommend this pattern.

    Great shorts

    I made my boys a pair from some left over linen - a quick easy make. Just wish they went to bigger sizes!

    The best

    Super pleased how these pants came together, not that I expected anything different from a TT pattern. It finishes off the set I’ve made perfectly. Size 12 months
    Looking forward to more makes

    Scout shorts

    Great little shorts for 3 year old and 6 mth old. Made them in some left overs. Perfect

    scout shorts and trousers

    I have made a pair of the longer length and the shorts length. Wonderful pattern and tutorial. I'm just about to start on three pairs of shorts for my littlest grand child. Thank you so much. I should add here I am beginner on sewing clothes. I have made the rainhaven trousers and pixie pea coat too, all incredibly well designed and therefore easy to produce a wonderful item.

    Mostly lovely trousers

    I couldn't wait to make these trousers, and they came together beautifully. I just have two comments, I found the rise a little long, creating a bit of a saggy rear in the largest size. Also, I would really like if the size range could be extended. Stopping at age 10 seems a bit ill-considered given many children around that age might need to wear to larger sizes in children's styles. The loose style of these trousers would be great for older kids and teens, what do you think T+T?

    Thank you for your feedback, Allyson!

    This is quite a common question - we include teen sizes with our adult patterns, in order to allow longevity with them. And you are in luck - we have very similar adult patterns in development! Keep an eye out for updates - subscribing to our newsletter is the best way to get all the news.

    Easy for beginner

    Very quick and easy to sew. I’m beginner but didn’t take long to finish it. Love to watch video, so good explanation. Will definitely make more of them, this was only a try, and my first embroidery ever.
