Children grow up very fast. As summer approaches, reviewing the child’s wardrobe, you understand that there will be practically nothing for him to wear. I propose a quick way out of the situation - let's sew simple, but cute shorts in just an hour.
What will be needed for this work:
• Paper or tracing paper for patterns.
• Cloth, you can use any, suitable for both cotton and knitwear.
• Sewing machine.
• Threads for sewing.
• Wide linen elastic.
First of all, we draw a pattern on paper. You do not need to do special measurements, the main thing is that it be along the length that satisfies you size. We draw the width along the floor of the circumference of the hips of your child, adding another 10 cm to this size.
Four identical details are cut out according to the pattern. On two of them we make the lateral edge deeper. We put together one part, cut exactly according to the pattern and the second, with a deeper lateral edge, face inward. Sew the inner, short side.
Now we sew the side edges.
We turn one of the parts sewn together on the front side.
We insert one part into another and stitch together the inner sides.
We turn the product to the front side. The shorts are almost ready.
We bend and stitch the edges on the legs.
Now bend the wide edge at the waist.
Do not forget to leave the window undersized to insert an elastic band into it.
Using a pin, we stretch the elastic and sew its edges. When the elastic is in place, sew a hole.
So, quickly and not at all difficult, we sewed excellent shorts for the child for the summer. In the same way, you can sew a child several skirts, just without dividing the fabric into legs. And if you use a larger pattern, according to the size of your body, then you can make the same shorts for yourself.
We made wonderful shorts in which the child will be very comfortable in the summer. Costs of time and money were minimal, and the baby’s wardrobe was coolly updated.
