Sew the Free Shorts Pattern For Toddlers
Seam allowances for the Free Shorts Pattern For Toddlers are 3/8″ or 1 cm. Use a serger or ballpoint needle and stretch stitch on a regular sewing machine. A walking foot can be helpful when sewing with knits.
With right sides together, pin and stitch front and back crotch seam. It can be easy to sew the inseam instead of the crotch seam, but I’ve placed a notch on the back crotch to help you stay orientated.
Stitch the elastic down, stretching as you sew.
