The Speeltijd Shorts Sewing Pattern is amazing for the next playdate! Your little one will love climbing trees and riding bikes in these easy to wear shorts that you made! Two front pocket options, 2 back pocket options and special instructions guiding you through the optional adjustable elastic waist. Longer length makes these shorts perfect for school dress codes. Button or snap waist closure tops a zipper fly with an optional fly guard. Fall in love with this classic look and make a pair in both fun prints and good ol’ solids.

Like the rest of The Eli Monster’s patterns; The Speeltijd Shorts PDF Sewing Pattern is layered which means you only need to print the size you are making! All steps are accompanied by full-color photographs so you never have to guess where to sew or place. We gave extra attention to the zipper and adjustable waistband sections, guiding you through everything.
