So after trying for 3 days to make a pants pattern for my 2 year old, I gave up. Every pair was wrong in some way. I started looking online for patterns, almost bought one, and then decided to just go glance at my pattern stash, just in case. I found a pattern that I had bought for the shirt, but the included pants were PERFECT! Flat front, elastic back, front pockets, contrasting cuffs and waistband. Just what I had been trying to make! I started at about 7:30 and had them done by 11:00. They are chocolate colored 100% linen, and the contrasting fabric is Martini by Alexander Henry, which I believe is out of print, but I found it on clearance at a local fabric store. My son is asleep, but I can't wait until morning to try them on him!

So glad you had a happy ending! - and a great fabric combination as well - always good to see little boys in bright colours.
