So, after trying 3 times to make my own pattern work for some toddler pants, I give up. The first pair came out too tight in the butt, the second pair were shorts and I didn't make the rise high enough, and the last pair were too puffy in the crotch, and not high enough in back, and the length wasn't long enough. I am just going to modify a commercial pattern at this point. UGH! I can't make a muslin and try to fit them; he is two, and barely lets me put pants on him. I just have to make them and hope they fit. I really want a pair of flat front pants, with a flat waist band on the front and elastic in the back, and I want them to be somewhat skinny. If you know of a pattern that would fit around a 3T, let me know!

Pair #3

Pair #2

Pair #1 can be seen in an earlier post.

I don't know much about sewing, but can you use a pair of his existing pants to get the size correct?  That's what I did when I had a skirt I liked... you'd probably just be using the two long leg pieces to get you started.

I have both those patterns saved, but thank you!

I feel so stupid...I decided to give up and use a commercial pattern, and lo and behold, there in my stash is a pattern for EXACTLY what I wanted...straight leg, flat front, elastic back, contrasting cuffs, and two front pockets. It couldn't be more perfect. I am working on them now, I will post when I'm done!
