Petits D’om Child/Teen Fitz Joggers or Shorts
£7.50 – £14.50
Buy the Child/Teen Fitz Joggers or Shorts sewing pattern from Petits D’om. These slim-fit joggers or shorts can be sewn in two versions. Version A is a basic jogger with a vertical seam at the side. Version B has a curved side seam into which you can insert a contrasting strip, as well as a curved knee reinforcement with decorative topstitching. The hem of the Version B shorts is also thus curved. The leg hems of the joggers can be basic, with or without a zipper, or made with hem bands. The waistband can have inserted elastic, or you can sew a wide decorative elastic directly on the top of the joggers/shorts.
Fitz is perfect for sports or lounging, or even as a pyjama bottom. You can sew Fitz with an overlocker (serger) or a standard sewing machine, and the simplest version is very fast to sew.
