My son is trendier than I am. He has bright colored pants before I do! I found some great teal woman's shorts at a yard sale for a quarter and knew they would make fantastic pants. Don't mind the dark spot; Henry got the pants dirty after a short wear.
I used some of Henry's pants that fit him perfectly as a pattern. I added a little extra room for his diaper. I used the original belt loops and waistband, and I added one side of a snap on the center front to look like a working snap. I added topstitching to look like a fly front.
I used the original hem with a cute little slit. I love the slit!
These were the best pictures I could get of the pants in action. Henry is way too fast and curious!
