The Basics Collection


Meet the Basics Collection! They are exactly what their name implies; a collection of simple, basic shorts and pants in various finishes and lengths that will keep your kiddos dressed all year round.

SKU: BC01 Categories: , , ,


Note: You can get the Baby Basics and Original Basics Combo HERE.

With 3 lengths – short shorts, Bermudas and long pants – and 3 finishing options – 2 piece relaxed fit, inseam/hidden pockets and exposed pockets – the total of 9 different combinations will have your kiddos dressed year round, no matter the weather or occasion.

Available in sizes 1-10, including 18 months, this unisex shorts and pants pattern has been perfectly described as a blank canvas: make them as simple or as fancy as you like.
Add trims, contrasting fabric or bust your stash.
Dress your kiddos so they’re ready to play, explore, get grubby in a pair of exposed pocket Bermudas.
Or maybe whip up a soft, comfy pair of boxer shorts using the 2 piece relaxed fit short shorts.
Grab some fleecy knit and the 2 piece relaxed fit long pants pattern and you’ve got a pair of trackies to either curl up with some books and blocks when it’s too cold during Winter, or to go and play in the crisp air outside as Autumn arrives.

The options are just about endless.

  • If you’ve been here long enough you’ll know that I’m a fan of quick and easy, so for that reason only, overlockers making sewing these shorts and pants a bit faster, but using one is not necessary.
  • 12mm elastic
