Buy the Child/Teen Sheebam Shorts or Pants sewing pattern from Petits D’om. Depending on the fabric used and the version chosen, Sheebam can be sewn as pyjama bottoms or as light shorts or pants for the summer. They are worn on the hips and can have pockets, which you can decorate with frills, piping or trim. The waist is elasticated and can have a frill or not.

There are two cuts for the shorts: a flared cut which rises slightly on the side and has a ruffle at the hem (version A) or a simple straight cut (version B). The pants are straight cut, like the version B shorts.
