My hubby outgrew a pair of old jean shorts but they were in otherwise good condition so I hated to get rid of them. I ended up making a pair of pants for my son. They just have elastic around the waistband and this gets a bit bulky in the back b/c the pockets are back there too. But I think they are really cute b/c they are very wide. He seems to like them too. Sorry there isn't a better detailed picture...this is the only one I could get!

**Here are a couple of pictures of the back to show you what I meant about the pockets. Again...I used Petchy's awesome ten minute pants tutorial as a base for these. Now if I only had an old Jncos patch...

What a great idea, how did you do it?

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley

They look great! I love wide legs on little boys (I have two)!
