These were really fun to make. They are "Mimi's Boy, Suspender Shorts" from the book called Sewing for Boys. They look a bit like lederhosen, but would also be cute without the suspenders. A fake fly would also be cute on them.
What made them fun was the detail: the toptitching, the turn and stitch on the seam allowances, using facings for the waistband, the pockets, and making the buttonhole elastic.
Making the suspenders was ok, and I don't love how they look and how they turned out. They look like they are attached a bit wide. and the tab looks high on his back.
Altogether, though, I love the fit. This is the first project in the book I can say that about. They are a 4/5 and so is my son and they look great.
I used snaps instead of buttons and also did contrasting fabric for the facings.
Love this project. I will definitely try it again.
