This is an easy, quick, highly customizable pattern for newborn pants or shorts. These pants are slim enough not to bunch up in a big way on those skinny newborn legs, but not too snug either. They come with two options for pocket shapes… the number, type and placement of pockets is up to you! The pattern includes lines to cut these as shorts. I offer an optional ankle band if you prefer that option to hemming. You can add an optional mock drawstring to the elastic waistband for style points. These pants are perfect with the hospital-type wrap top.
These versatile pants are a layette staple for both baby girls and boys, which makes them the perfect gift for when you don’t know all the details before the baby shower! This pattern works equally well in stable knits, French terry, sweatshirt or microfleece, or even thicker sweater knits.
This pattern is designed for those who don’t require comprehensive construction directions. Basic instructions, some recommendations, and all critical pattern pieces are provided, but construction techniques and design considerations are fully at your discretion. Get in touch with pictures of your finished projects and details of your design choices… I plan to featured and link to inspiring creations here at thimble pie.
