Little Big Pants have a nice fit with a flat front and elastic back waist with no bulky bunching on the front of the pants. One pair can last a couple of seasons as your child grows…the longer cropped style will be just as cute as they become shorter. Wide range of sizing from 3/6 months to 12 years means that this is one that you can pull out and use over and over again. Made with heavier fabrics this makes a wonderful fall/winter pant over a great pair of boots, too.
Wear those dresses on the monkey bars!
Great Beginner Pattern…very simple construction.
***Please note that the orange and brown sample pants were made from a recycled men’s shirt. The original shirt was made up of several fabrics pieced together so the finished Little Big Pants became more interesting because of that. The tutorial does not include instructions on piecing fabrics together but it does include instructions on how to make these from a men’s shirt. The more interesting the men’s shirt that you choose to upcycle, the more interesting your finished Little Big Pants will be.
