These are one of those patterns you look at and think, Oh, those look hard, I think I will go with something else! My advice? Don't! they are fun and fast to sew up and your little guy or girl will LOVE them. My son did not want to take his off and actually slept in them haha We love them and have more pairs planned.

Love these board shorts! The contrast and piping give them something different than you normally see. Sewed up well instructions were very straight forward. My son loves them. Now I need to finish the other pair for my youngest :)

I made this pattern in several sizes for all my kids. It is a quick, fun sew, and the kids love them (they won't take them off). I love the piping and color blocking details.

I made this pattern for my 6 month old boy and loved the results! Instead of ordering board shorts fabric I went to a thrift store and picked up 2 pairs of barely worn swim trunks.. It cost me only $2!!! And there's plenty fabric left over to make him another pair when he grows out of these ones. Perfect fit and very easy to make!

Love these shorts! They are quick and easy to sew but the results are so cute! Perfect fit as is always the case with PAB patterns.

I made these for my sporty daughter - she loves them for her "extreme" water sports. The fit is great, wonderful sun coverage, and cool use of multiple fabrics. My first board shorts and a great experience!
