Newsboy knickers are super trendy right now and your tween won’t find a more comfy pair! They feature a flat front with elastic back, traditional length, bands that give a fitted look below the knee, and of course the classy welt pockets in back. You can go for so many different looks with this pattern! Be sure to flip through the photo gallery to see the variety!
Note: This pattern is created with the same rise in the front and in the back for a more modest and classic look. If you prefer a more modern, low rise front, you can use the blog below to achieve that look!

Please note that PDF patterns differ from traditional sewing patterns, and not all PDF designers have the same style. We prefer to give measurements for simple rectangles instead of rectangular pattern pieces to save your time, paper, ink, and tape.
