Here is another pair of shorts for boys aged 2-3 years. I reused another old t-shirt. I'm a bit bemused and maybe a bit flattered that one of my baggy t-shirts has only enough material to fit a toddler. My paper pattern piece for shorts for 4 year olds is just slightly too big.
I had a Eureka moment and sewed in a little ribbon to show the back of the waistband.
I recently bought a bargain job lot of ribbon and obviously it included a duff one. This was a wide piece of black ribbon which I know I will never use......except for a project like this. I simply cut a piece of ribbon, folded it in half and sewed the raw edges into the waistband. The idea isn't rocket science, but I was stupidly pleased when I thought of it. A little boy can find the back of his shorts and I found a way to use my black ribbon!
These shorts will eventually join a few others and go off to a children's charity.
