My friend Susuana, by Suco by Susana has a new pattern out there, it is the Sagres pattern, in her words "a relaxed fit pants or shorts designed for woven fabrics, with elastic waist and no zip or closures for easy getting dressed". This was originally designed to be part of One Thimble magazine, and you can now find it in her shop.
Again, I was lucky to be part of Susana's testers group and I really enjoyed making these. Actually I made a pair of pants too, but they turned out too baggy on my skinny boy, they will fit later though, so hopefully, I will remember to take some photos and share them with you.
The shorts fitted pretty well though, and he got to wear them quite a few times until the weather got cold enough to set them apart - for now. Because of the elastic waist, I am sure they will still fit next summer and he'll be able to still enjoy his cute shorts.
I failed to photograph the before, but this was a chambray men's button up shirt that I refashioned into the boy's shorts. I used a much darker thread while sewing to achieve some contrast and try to make this even more interesting. As always, I love to sew with Susana's patterns, she's very professional in her work, and her finishing details stand out. If you were to ask me for a single designer to recomend you, I'll surely point her out. Her designs are actually day-to-day pieces, the kind my kids wear the most. Check her blog out, for more pants and shorts inspiration (boys and girls).
