Kids shorts, knickerbockers & harem pants sewing pattern

$12.50

Details

STYLE OUTLINE:

This shorts, knickerbocker & pants sewing pattern is designed for both girls & boys. The size range is from size 2 to size 14.

With simple styling, the Tumble Bums are easy fitting shorts, knickerbockers & pants. They are super practical with no side seams, no pockets, nothing fancy; just a great fit. Best of all, they are FAST & EASY TO SEW!! 

Not only do you get to choose the style you want to make, you also get to choose between 4 awesome waistbands that are simple to sew & look professional. See below for more details.

There is also instructions outlining how to accommodate a gorgeous little pop belly that some of our kids have. 

CHOOSE THE STYLE OF SHORTS/PANTS YOU'D LIKE TO SEW:
Choose from several lengths to suit the season & your child.
  • 3 Shorts Lengths: high thigh (Sporty), mid thigh (Middies) & low thigh (Stompers).
  • Knickerbockers or Bermudas - These sit below the knee.
  • Plain Pants & Harem Pants.
  • PLUS seperate cutting lines for boys & girls from size 6-14.
  • PLUS belly adjustment instructions if your child has a cute little pot belly.
THEN CHOOSE A WAISTBAND TO ADD ON:
Then choose from 4 easy waistbands to add to your shorts or pants.
  • The Covered Waistband: a simple fabric waistband with elastic placed inside which makes the waist gather up.
  • The Topstitched Waistband: This is very close to what you’ll find in stores. I have simplified it so that you can easily make it at home. It features fabric covered elastic with 3 rows of topstitching.
  • Exposed Elastic Waistband: Add contrast & colour to your pants/shorts/bloomers with this quick to sew, exposed elastic waistband.
  • Stretch Knit Waistband: This one gets asked for the most. A super comfy waistband method using cotton lycra, that’s easy & fast to sew, & comfortable to wear.

          SKILL LEVEL: Easy

          SIZE RANGE: 2-14 (see sizing chart)

          To determine size, measure around the hip/seat. This measurement is taken around the fullest part of the child's seat. The tape measure should be firm but not tight

          FABRIC & TRIM OUTLINE:

          TRIM REQUIREMENTS:
          • Harem Pants & Knickerbockers 12mm (1/2") elastic. 
          • Covered Waistband 20mm (3/4") elastic.
          • Topstitched Waistband 38-40mm (1.5") elastic.
          • Exposed Elastic Waistband 38-40mm (1.5") plush or decorative elastic.

          FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: Quilting cotton, cotton voile, linen, cotton blends, chambray, tencel, rayon.

          FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 110cm (44") fabric. Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.  (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.

          NOTE: Fabric requirements for the Legs & Waistbands are separate. Add together if you are using the same fabric for both elements of your Shorts, Bloomers or Pants.
