These are the "Little Heartbreaker Pants" from the book called Sewing for Boys. This is my second pass at this pattern (first is here).
I modified the pattern to make them into shorts. To do this, I folded my pattern piece up so I could leave about four inches from the crotch down the leg. Then I ironed a hem and stitched to the top and bottom of my ironing.
I used Michael Miller's Tot Town Dig It fabric for the exterior (at the little guy's request) and a mustard with cherry blossoms from JoAnn's for the accent (also at his request). I made my own buttonhole elastic using FOE and snaps.
These are the size 2/3 and he is solidly a 4 or 5. I have found the sizing in the book to be way too generous, although I may need to widen the elastic in these to make the waist looser.Pin It
