I thought I could wing a pair of sleep pants for my boys, but either my kiddo has had a growth spurt or I did not buy enough material.

But when I look for a pattern for sizes 12 boys to small mens, I can't find anything. How the heck is that? Most pattern books are FULL of the things.

Is it a case of not seeing the forest for the trees? Can you point out any patterns to me please?

Blame the boy for growing too fast Wink

I'd get the small mens & take it in instead of going for a large boys pattern, he is bound to keep growing and at 12 will already be shifting into adult proportions from child proportions. Kwik sew Mens' Small is a 28 waist I think? it's pretty darn skinny.

If I quit feeding him so much, he might quit growing so fast and then I'd have more money for sewing! Cheesy

I will go look for Kwik Sew, thanks. There is always a jump from 24 inch waists to 32 it seems.

My son is 12 ~today actually~ but I use McCalls 5228 size 10-16, I've used it for fleece and some other stuff not even sure what it was. I have a problem with length sometimes and these were actually a little long for once.

Sorry I just checked it's out of print but I found it here

Now thinking of it my mom used it to make him the hoodie out of flannel which was a good -not to tight- fit

Yeah, that pattern looks perfect actually. My kiddo wears a lot of jackets and hoodies too.

I just want to give a heads up that I found a pattern that I can use for now. I found it quite by accident while scouring through a local thrift shop the other day.

The directions seem clear and the fabrics recommended are nearly endless. Sadly, it seemed to be a short lived pattern and I can find little information online about it, save this one review.

Thanks to all for the help.
