The Boys Are Back in Town - Burda 9793

Burda 9793



We've been running a bit low on shorts around here for a few reasons. Firstly, I'm just not that good at keeping up with the laundry. Secondly, some shorts have reached the end of their days. Thirdly, my boys are refusing to wear any shorts in their drawers that have a zipper and button (understandable really). On Sunday I spent some time restocking. I turned to my trusty Burda 9793 and added patch pockets with asymmetrical flaps.

  1. The clothes you make always look as if one could have bought them from a shop ... by that, I mean you always do such a professional job!

    Those shorts are fabulous.

    The thought of zippers and little lads' shorts brings tears to my eyes.

    ZIPPER! should be a swear word!

  6. Completely cute!! And I love the asymmetrical pocket flaps. A great detail. My two boys only wore drawstring shorts at that age too!

  7. Your kids are so gorgeous! Lucky Mummy to have a ninja or two at hand if you're ever in need of protection. Love their shorts. I bet they're faves.

  8. Such handsome blokes. I like how you have used different fabric placement for the brother shorts so that one pair looks green stripe and the other more orange, very clever. The pockets are cool, and the ninja pose most impressive ;). I am so lazy about boy shorts. I bought 2 pairs for the boy at big W last week and feel a bit guilty.....

  9. Great shorts! I like that stripey fabric. I figure zippers and buttons are wasted on little guys, anyway.
