Description

Hey There! Meet the Explorer Shorts, designed for adventures and exploring. The pockets are deep and wide enough to carry treasures, letters, money, rocks and whatever else it is your little one likes to collect. The elasticised waistband with a flat front makes this pattern both comfy to wear and easy for kiddos to dress themselves – an easy way to let them gain independence. The Explorer Shorts come with 2 length options, short and long.



Like their sister, The Explorer Skirt, the Explorer Shorts are quick and fun to make.



It’s also a great stash buster: mix & match the front and back pieces, or even chop up the pockets using the pocket pattern hack. The comfy fit, length options and fairly quick construction makes the Explorer Shorts perfect for gift giving or to sell.



Sizes 1 year (12m) -10 years

The sizing is fit for age, in yearly increments with the bonus inclusion of 18 months between sizes 1 and 2.



Fabric requirments:

Main shorts pieces:

SHORTS FRONT & SHORTS BACK

Size 1-5: .6 m (60cms) {.65 yards}

Size 4-10: 1.2m (120cms) {1.4 yards}

Pocket piece

.30m (30cms) OR two pieces of scrap fabric 35cm x 35cm {.35 yards}



Tools needed:

Sewing machine
Overlocker (would be handy and quick but SO not necessary)
Scissors
Safety Pin
Iron – for pressing seams and hems
A quick unpick. Well, not really, but if you are bull-at-a-gateish like me, yeah you will. I’m not impatient, I’m enthusiastic.


Skill Level

Beginner. Maybe if you’ve never touched a sewing machine before you might want to find something with less steps as your first crack, but if you can/are willing to ask The Google how to:

top stitch
iron on interfacing
then you’ll be good to go.

I have been sewing for over 20 years and can say this pattern challenged me. It is not a PDF you can cut out to your size then put together I had to print it twice and the pocket instruction if I had not found a hack here http://www.heytherethreads.com/explorer-skirt-pattern-hack/ I would have thrown the lot in the bin. I am sorry for the harsh feedback. I had been looking at making this skirt for my girls for a very long time not sure if I will make again
