I made shorts for my boys out of a dish towel, which was awesome! I love the concept, which is definitely solid, and these turned out so cute! My problem? I didn’t measure anything or use a pattern of any sort. The result?
Uh, mom, these pants don’t fit!
They didn’t work on my two year-old. So I put them on my one year-old, and they were a bit tight but still fit over his diaper. I sent him to grandma’s house sporting his new shorts (but I included a pair of pajama pants in the diaper bag, just in case).
Sure enough, RIP CITY. The pants split down the middle.
Moral of the story? There are a couple. One, buy the biggest dish towels you can to make shorts out of (or buy two to allow ample material). Two, measure twice before you cut! Measure the kid, and measure the fabric!
