Buy the Baby/Child Dapper Dude Shorts sewing pattern from Made by Jack’s Mum. These shorts are perfect for the dude or dude-ess in your life! Slim-fitting but comfortable, and stylish but modest, they have two lengths: long (which is designed to sit below the knee, almost like cropped trousers) and short (which is designed to sit around or just above the knee). Both lengths are also designed to look good rolled up, giving you a further two lengths. You can choose from hip pockets, back pockets and criss-cross side pockets. They can be made with a buttonhole elastic waistband and a faux or zip fly, or an elasticated yoga waist. There are also twisted and straight leg options.
