Tuckers Knit Waist Woven Shorts

I loved this pattern! It sewed up quick and beautifully and was very true to size. Sewed this for my three year old great grandson and the knit waistband is so much easier than a woven one for him to get on and off, (he’s being potty trained) and looks great on him. So happy I purchased this awesome pattern!
