Free Baby Shorts Pattern + Free Baby Bloomers Pattern
Use the free baby shorts pattern and free baby bloomers pattern to make upcycled shorts! Reuse the hem of any shirt or patterns for a fast sewing project!
This is a PDF downloadable pattern that comes in sizes 3 months, 6 months, 9 mos, 12 months, and 18 mos. Don't forget to get the tutorial for the free baby shorts pattern. The bottom of the shorts are meant to be lined up with the hem of a t-shirt, dress, pants, shorts, skirt, etc. The options are unlimited. This is a free baby sewing pattern, but you can use the same idea for any older child.
I usually make bloomers from t-shirts because the fabric needs to be pretty soft to gather up. The denim shorts were made from cut offs of pants. The white shorts were made from the hem of a white embroidered tunic.
To make this baby shorts sewing pattern you'll need the hem area of pants, shorts, or a t-shirt, sewing tools, 1/4" elastic for the bloomers only, and 3/4" elastic for the waist for both the shorts or the bloomers.
