Xavier’s Summer Shorts

Cute pattern. I chose this shorts pattern because it showed to be for a beginner. I found that a few steps were a bit confusing as I am a novice. Seems like the directions were written for a more experienced level seamstress.

Easy pattern with pockets sharp!

These shorts are simple yet stylish and affordable with pockets. I just made a set for our twin grandsons who are 8, but I will be making many more for their spring/summer wardrobe. Love these!

Easy pattern with pockets sharp!

I got this for a song and a dance, but don't let that fool you. These shorts were so easy. The pockets on these shorts, set them apart from some of the other patterns. Little boys need pockets to carry rocks, bugs and tools. I made my pockets out of a coordinating fabric to give the even more flare. Love these.

This was a crazy easy pattern to sew, and the best part of the pattern is the big pockets. This is an essential pattern for the little boy in your life!

easy even for a beginner

I would give this 5 stars but it stumped me in a couple spots. I would recommend it over and over again though. Very easy first pair of shorts I've ever made and I have made tons since!
