This project is for a July charity sewing project at Hopeful Threads to make little boys short. (http://hopefulthreads.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/july-2012-monthly-project-announcement.html).
The pattern comes in several sizes, from 12 months to 7/8 and has several different options: with or without pockets, with or without a faux fly front and with or without cuffs or any combination of those three options.
I chose to make a Size 7/8. I bought the soccer fabric at Hancock Fabric's today on sale for $2.09 a yard.
I haven't made a boy's pair of shorts since my son was a toddler (he is now a high school graduate) so thankfully the project was a simple one. I was able to complete this while watching two hour long television shows.
